New York -  The Wanted is trying to keep it real: The British boy band has signed on to do a reality series on E!

The Wanted Life, co-produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, will follow the band members as they move into a house in the Hollywood Hills and work on their anticipated album, due for release later this year.

The fivesome announced Wednesday that their show will debut in June. A press release said the behind-the-scenes series will be "unvarnished" and "nonglossy."

Broke onto US music scene

The Wanted broke onto the US music scene with the Top 5 hit Glad You Came. They dropped their self-titled US debut EP last year and have released two successful albums and multiple singles in the United Kingdom.

The group is planning a full-length album and international tour for the fall. Their US manager is Scooter Braun, who also manages Justin Bieber.

The band members include Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran.
