The Naked Brothers Band is an American musical comedy television series created by Polly Draper, which aired on Nickelodeon from February 3, 2007, to June 13, 2009. It depicts the daily lives of Draper's sons, who lead a faux world-renowned rock band in New York City. As a mockumentary, the story line is an embellished parody of their real lives, and the fictional presence of a camera is often acknowledged. The show stars Nat Wolff and Alex Wolff, the lead singer-songwriter and drummer, respectively. Nat's fictional female interest (portrayed by Allie DiMeco) and real-life friends Thomas Batuello, David Levi, and Cooper Pillot, as well as Qaasim Middleton—who has no prior acquaintance with the family—are featured as the other band members, with Draper's jazz musician husband, Michael Wolff, as his sons' widowed accordion-playing dad and her niece Jesse Draper portraying the group's babysitter.
The series is a spin-off of Draper's film of the same name that was picked up by the network, premiering in January 2007. Draper, known for her starring role in Thirtysomething, is the executive producer and often writer and director. Albie Hecht, former president of Nickelodeon and Spike TV, is the other executive producer, under his Worldwide Biggies tag. Michael Wolff, who led the band on The Arsenio Hall Show, serves as co-executive producer and music supervisor, with Draper's brother, Tim, as the consulting producer.
When the show debuted on the channel, it aired two episodes, garnering 3.7 million viewers. Viacom announced that the "series delivered Nickelodeon's highest-rated premiere in seven years" and it became favorable for children aged 6–11. Following the show's premiere, the band's song "Crazy Car" was placed on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and the first and second season soundtrack albums were on the top 200 Billboard charts. The series was nominated for several awards, earning a Broadcast Music, Inc. Award and one Writers Guild of America Award. It concluded after three seasons because the network began placing high shooting demands on the family that would disrupt the siblings' schooling.
