The MANBAND script follows two music promoters, Louie and Joey, on a new assignment to find the next hottest thing for Reality TV. As former promoters of boybands, it only seems logical that Joey would inspire to create a "Manband." The Television Company plans to film their new creation from discovery to reality. From this point the film takes off, involved in auditions, television sabotage, bad folk music, bad dancing, and a "Manband" of misfits.
