SISTERS OF POP SENSATION BRUNO MARS REACH FOR THE STARS IN WE tv's NEWEST ORIGINAL SERIES "THE LYLAS"
PREMIERES FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8 AT 9PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - September 30, 2013 - Jaime, Tiara, Tahiti and Presley - sisters of Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Bruno Mars - leave the sand and surf of Hawaii for the City of Angels to take the music industry by storm in WE tv's newest docu-series, The LYLAS. Premiering Friday, November 8 at 9pm ET/PT, the sisters prepare to launch their music career, but are soon faced with personal and professional obstacles they didn't see coming including the untimely death of their mother and major rifts with their management team.
Proving that musicality and fame run in the family, this new hour-long series chronicles Bruno Mars' four sisters as they follow their dreams of superstardom while striving to stay true to themselves and their Hawaiian roots. Tahiti, Tiara and Presley leave their hometown of Honolulu to join sister Jaime in Los Angeles to officially give music a shot. But, behind the soundtrack of their fast-paced lifestyle, The LYLAS are facing a bigger challenge - living and working together for the first time in years. The LYLAS love each other deeply, but will their strong personalities coupled with the pressure to succeed jeopardize their chances of becoming music's next big sensation?
In the premiere episode, The LYLAS arrive in Los Angeles; however, the transition is not easy for everyone as Tahiti, a mother of two, struggles with leaving her children behind. We see the ladies quickly get down to business joining forces with their management team who arrange a power meeting with famed producer, Dallas Austin. While the ladies are thrilled with the meeting, they quickly discover they don't see eye-to-eye with management.
The LYLAS is produced for WE tv by Asylum Entertainment (The Kennedys, Ring of Fire, Natural Born Sellers, Beverly Hills Pawn, Addicted and more) and Executive Produced by Steve Michaels and Jonathan Koch. Executive Producer for WE tv is Suzanne Murch and Senior Vice President of Production & Development, Lauren P. Gellert.
