A New Kids on the Block Singer’s New Acting Gig

Pop’s new scripted series starring Joey McIntyre has started filming in Los Angeles.

The aptly titled “The Joey Mac Project,” stars the New Kids on the Block singer as a fictionalized version of himself, “a former boy-band singer trying to transition to a career in acting.”

McIntyre serves as executive producer on the half-hour comedy along with Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy, Tim Gibbons, Paul Greenberg and Jenny Daly.

“I lucked out. What are the chances of me being cast as a character named Joey McIntyre?” McIntyre told Variety. “But in all seriousness, if you love to laugh, we have a comedy gold team behind this project who have the secret sauce for funny TV…yes, I just said that.”

On Tuesday, Sept. 20 and Wednesday, Sept. 21, “The Joey Mac Project” filmed at a private residence located at 149 N. McCadden Pl., Los Angeles from 7 a.m.-10 p.m.
