A&E is branching out from burgers to bars.

After launching Wahlburgers earlier this year, the network announced on Monday that it has ordered 10 episodes of a reality series starring Nick and Drew Lachey. Tentatively titled Lachey’s Bar, the show will chronicle the adventures of the two brothers/98 Degrees members as they fulfill their dream of opening a bar in Cincinnati, where they grew up and Drew still lives.

“Despite their lack of knowledge about running a business, these determined brothers are ready to roll up their sleeves and learn the ins and outs of running a place where everybody knows your name,” said A&E in a press release. “Unfortunately, drinking experience doesn’t necessarily translate into drink-making experience… but they’re ready to learn.”

Nick and wife Vanessa, who divide their time between Los Angeles and New York, are deciding where to “put roots down,” and a likely place is Cincinnati, where the couple has a house next door to Drew’s.

The show, which was originally in development for sister network FYI, has begun production and is scheduled to air in 2015.
