The Veronicas will star in a new reality series for MTV’s global audience.
Jess & Lisa: The Veronicas (working title) is described as an all access pass to the raw and honest reality they face living life in the spotlight as one of Australia’s biggest music exports.
“We continue to invest in great content, and are committed to connecting audiences with the music and artists they love,” said Bruce Gillmer, global head of music and talent, Viacom, and co-brand head, MTV International. “The Veronicas were part of our first-ever MTV PUSH launch in 2009, and we are so excited to work with them again and give fans a new, behind-the-scenes look into their lives and music in a way only MTV can do.”
Jess and Lisa Origliasso said, “We grew up with MTV and to be able to create a show together, bringing people closer inside our lives of music and as sisters, is going to be a wild ride.”
The series is currently in production and will premiere later in 2019.
Hailing from Brisbane, the identical twin Origliasso sisters rose to international stardom as The Veronicas when they released their debut album The Secret Life Of… and continued securing worldwide success with singles 4Ever, Untouched, Hook Me Up, You Ruin Me, In My Blood and most recently Think Of Me.
With a career that spans over fifteen years, The Veronicas were the first Australian artists ever to have a single certified Platinum in the US with over 1 million paid downloads of 2007’s Untouched. They have since amassed ten top 10 hits in Australia including three #1s, 500 million-plus streams, two ARIA Awards and over 175 million YouTube/vevo views.
