The Naked Brothers Band is an American television series created by actress Polly Draper and produced by Kidzhouse Entertainment and Worldwide Biggies, which aired on Nickelodeon from February 3, 2007 to June 13, 2009.
The series is a spin-off of The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie, which was originally an independent film written and directed by Draper.
Draper's husband, Michael Wolff, serves as the music supervisor and also plays his sons' inept accordion-playing father.
