Neither of those Lucero songs are unreleased, I'm not sure if the news post was trying to imply that.

Ben Nichols is one of the main characters? Is he acting, or playing himself? Hmmm..

It's going to be like Curb Your Enthusiasm... Ben will be an exaggerated version of himself, where he gets into various hijinks. In one episode, there will be a rumor going around that Ben stuck a gerbil up his butt!

I have a friend who worked on this show. It's one of those "mostly" reality shows, sort of like The Hills or Laguna Beach. So he's playing himself.

I just watched the trailer. It's fiction for sure. The acting looks awful. I didn't notice Ben Nichols anywhere in it until the end, and he's on stage playing San Francisco.

Ben Nichols as an exaggerated version of himself would die of alcohol poisoning in 2 hours.

Ha nice.

Lucero are seriously good, and under appreciated. Good to see a tv show on MTV though which has a connection to music...
