Nick Gets in Sync With Naked Brothers

September 30, 2007 9:00 PM

In the never-ending pursuit of new digital opportunities, Nickelodeon is getting into the kid karaoke business. The real-life teen rock stars of the network’s mockumentary show "Naked Brothers Band" will release their first CD, a soundtrack from the show, on Oct. 9. In support of the release and an Oct. 6 hourlong TV movie starring the band, the network will let kids upload audio and video files of themselves singing along, karaoke-style, to the music of the Naked Brothers Band. The user-generated musical concoctions will run live on Nickelodeon.com and on Turbonick.com, where other kids can watch, rate and send recordings to their friends. Nickelodeon said it will apply these tactics to other music-related properties coming down the pike. —Daisy Whitney
