Jonas Brothers Documentary in the Works at Amazon

Jonas Brothers fans, remember to breathe.

Amazon Studios has announced it is partnering with Philymack, and Federal Films, a division of Republic Records, on an upcoming documentary about the Jonas brothers, to premiere on Amazon Prime Video.

The doc will give fans “an intimate look” into the lives of Kevin, Nick and Joe.

“Our fans are the best in the world and have shared in our journey as the Jonas Brothers and us as individuals,” said the Jonas Brothers in a statement. “In releasing this documentary we wanted to make sure we partnered with an innovative platform, like Amazon, that could reach our fans around the world.”

In an interview with Brooke Reese on the Beats 1 radio station on Apple Music, the brothers gave some details about what their fans can expect in the documentary.

“It’s going to give people a look into who we are as a family, as brothers and — oh yeah — we were also the Jonas brothers at one time, then we weren’t, and now we are again. So you kind of get the full range of our life story plus our family’s perspective on everything,” Nick said. “Also a big factor in this too is the fans and what they’ve meant to us. I think it’s going to be something we look back on in 20 years and we were able to show our kids and be really proud of the growth we’ve had.”

The brothers also discussed their love for BTS and K-Pop, in general. The siblings took the Wonder Girls on tour in 2009.

“I’m obsessed with K-Pop,” Kevin Jonas said. “We went to Singapore and I think me and Joe watched like 24 straight hours of K-Pop videos on TV. It was amazing.”

Joe shared his love for BTS. “What [BTS] can do is really impressive. Good for them. They’re selling out arenas everywhere. And stadiums now.”

The band only recently dropped their comeback single, “Sucker,” which represents their first original release in nearly six years, and the debut of their new partnership with Republic Records. The accompanying music video, which playfully stars the trio’s respective partners, Priyanka Chopra, “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, and Danielle Jonas, has already gained over 40 million views on YouTube.

“Amazon Prime Video is proud to be the exclusive home for a very personal, behind the scenes look at the Jonas Brothers as they reunite for this exciting tour” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, in a statement. “Experiencing the brothers back together again is the news that everyone hoped for and we can’t wait to share this intimate and compelling documentary special with all of our customers.”

More details about the documentary, including a premiere date, will be announced later on.
