Jonas Brothers comedy sets date

Series debuts May 2 on Disney Channel

Disney Channel has set a date for its Jonas Brothers musical comedy series.

Titled "Jonas," the program debuts May 2 at 8 a.m.

"The true test of artists is their willingness to stretch creatively -- to tackle new challenges," said Gary Marsh, president, entertainment, Disney Channel. "The Jonas Brothers, already established as music superstars, have done just that with 'Jonas' -- by stretching beyond their established comfort zone into the world of television comedy."

Full episode previews of "Jonas" will be available starting April 25 on several cable providers via Disney Channel on Demand.

In the show, the band plays the fictional rock superstar Lucas Brothers as they try to live ordinary lives.
