English girl group The Saturdays are fresh off an Island Def Jam and Mercury Records inked record deal, but now they have their sights set on reality TV.
"We were meeting with networks and pitching ideas that this was a big journey for us, we want it to be documented," said bandmember Rochelle Humes. "At the minute, we're here just to record an album and shoot the music video for the single. We haven't agreed to anything just yet, but it's an idea that will probably happen."
Added group member Una Healy, "It's definitely in the cards."
A reality television show, ever prevalent and popular on American television channels and blogs, would be a great way to gently introduce the overseas act to the U.S. market. Think Spice World for TV.
"We feel like the time is now for pop music coming from the U.K. and Ireland," said Una. "But there's never been a girl band coming from there since The Spice Girls. It's time for us."
It also helps that the five dynamic girls all have strong friendships, personal lives, and creative visions which should make for a quality behind-the-scenes look into the British pop phenomenon that’s been underway on the Billboard charts lately—Adele, One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Cher Lloyd, and The Wanted, for example.
“We’re the type of girl band where we love The Spice Girls, we love the Pussycat Dolls," said band mate Vanessa White. "But what we really want to get out to the fans is that we all really get on and it’s all about friendship. We want people to be our friends...we're not going to steal your boyfriends!"
"We're not those girls!" insists Rochelle.
That’d be refreshing to see. A Real Housewives of The Saturdays doesn’t seem to really suit their girl power style.
