If things go according to plan, Lance Bass will help some Nineties boy band singers return to the spotlight in a new VH1 reality show.

Speaking to New York Magazine Thursday, the 32-year-old *NSYNC alum announced that he recently sold six reality shows, including one to VH1.

"It's a really great music show, starring all your favorite boy bands," Bass said. "It's going to be really fun."

As of now, Bass said the program will feature A.J. McLean from the Backstreet Boys, Joey Fatone from *NSYNC, Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block, and, if he agrees, Bobby Brown from New Edition.

"They're all going to form a boy band, each, from the most talented guys in America that I've scouted, and then they'll go head-to-head in a competition to see who the best band is," Bass explained. "It's bragging rights for the guy in the group, for sure."

Brown, 42, has yet to officially sign on, but Bass seemed optimistic. "I think Bobby will do it," he said. "I think he'd love it!"

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
