The "Men of the Strip" revue is the brainchild of Jeff Timmons of the internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum selling group 98 Degrees, Emmy nominated choreographer Glenn Douglas Packard, and entertainment entrepreneur "Money Mike" Foland.

The hippest, hottest and sexiest male entertainers, led by Timmons, will add singing and athleticism to their sensuous stage performance, making "Men of the Strip" the next big thing in the city that's seen it all.
The docusoap follows the journey of this hot new property as they wrap up their grassroots U.S. tour, and prep for their first Las Vegas performance, in hopes of finding a residency on the famed Vegas Strip. From casting for a new member and dealing with personal relationships, to grueling rehearsals and juggling their private and professional lives, the reality event culminates in their make-or-break Vegas performance. Cameras capture all the action as the testosterone-fueled performers give it their all for adoring female fans -- while taking it all off!
