U.S. cable net A&E has given the go-ahead for Lachey’s Bar, a 10 x 30 minute series following pop star Nick Lachey and his brother Drew as they open a tavern together in their Cincinnati hometown.

The executive producers for Leftfield Pictures, part of Leftfield Entertainment, are Brent Montgomery, David George, Jordana Hochman, Will Nothacker and Jason Hollis. A&E’s executive producers are Drew Tappon, Shelly Tatro, Dave Mace and Sean Gottleib, with Nick and Drew Lachey also serving as EPs.

Lachey’s Bar will air in 2015.
