That Band’ is a mockumentary about a boy band picked from a TV talent show, presented mainly through the eye of a single ‘hand held’ camera. It documents the story of a tacky, modern day manufactured boy band and takes us through the obvious hilarities of the ups and downs of life in a boy band, in this tongue in cheek, ‘is it real or not?’ approach. Whereas boy bands usually profess to be ’holier than thou’, here, we see the boys behaving in ‘all their glory’ – ‘warts-an-all’, like a modern day Spinal Tap.
With the success of X-factor style shows still current, ‘That Band’ gives us a hilarious insight and a different take on life after these talent shows, and in many instances….
A more realistic one.
