We fell in love with him when we first heard ‘Please Don’t Go Girl’ in 1988, and 29 years later Joey McIntyre is still smokin’ hot with the voice of an angel. Not only is this pop idol studmuffin still recording and touring with the rest of the New Kids On The Block hotties (if you haven’t gotten your Total Package Tour tickets yet, you’re insane), but he’s also starring in a brand new series on POP TV.
‘Return of the Mac’ is a scripted comedy series featuring Joey as himself, his fictional attempt to conquer Hollywood as a serious actor. Instead, he is offered a not-so-ideal gig as a talk show host and hilarity ensues. Featuring cameos from fellow NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg and his wife Jenny McCarthy (who produce the show along with Joey), Joey Lawrence (woah!), and Joey’s real life family (awwww), ‘Return of the Mac’ has everything a late ’80s/early ’90s teen heartthrob fanatic could want in a series.
Prior to the April 12 premiere, Joey will be making appearances around the country to promote the series. This Friday, March 31, YOU can join Joey (and a gazillion starstruck fans, myself included) for a meet and greet event at the Comcast Xfinity store in King of Prussia. The event will take place from 5pm to 7pm. Don’t forget your selfie sticks.
Check out the preview to ‘Return of the Mac’ and tune in to POP TV Wednesdays at 8:30 beginning April 12.
