The Jonas Brothers are turning in their secret decoder pens: Plans are off for them to play spies in their new upcoming TV series.

The trio's show, originally titled J.O.N.A.S! (for "Junior Operative Networks as Spies"), has been re-conceptualized into a more closer-to-home storyline for the boys.

"It's going to be about us as a band but dealing with normal things like trying to take out the trash and how not to get hounded by fans," Joe, 19, told ELLEgirl magazine. "It's going to be a funny show, and it's going to be a great cast."

It is unknown if the title will change as well.

Currently on tour in support of their latest chart-topper, A Little Bit Longer, the band commences production on the Disney Channel show in mid-September. "The writers are working on it as we speak, so we should be seeing scripts any day," Joe said. - Joyce Eng
