The Naked Brothers Band is an American musical comedy series created by Polly Draper. The show depicts the daily lives of Draper's sons, who lead a fictional world-renowned rock band from New York City. As a mockumentary, the storyline is a hyperbole of their real lives, and the fictional presence of a camera is often acknowledged. Lead vocals and instrumentation are contributed by the siblings; they wrote the lyrics themselves. The show stars Nat Wolff and Alex Wolff, who encounter conflicts with each other that are later omitted. Nat's fictional female admirer and real life preschool friends—including the guitarist who had no prior acquaintance with the family—feature as the band members, with the siblings' genuine father and Draper's husband as their accordion-playing dad and Draper's niece as the group's babysitter.

The series is a spin-off of Draper's 2005 film of the same name that was picked up by Nickelodeon, premiering in January 2007. Draper, star of Thirtysomething and her writings The Tic Code and Getting Into Heaven,[1][2] is the executive producer of the series, and often writer and director. Albie Hecht, former Nickelodeon president and founder of Spike TV, is the executive producer, under his Worldwide Biggies tag. Draper's jazz musician husband Michael Wolff serves as the music supervisor and co-executive producer with Draper's brother Tim as the consulting producer.

The show first aired in the United States on the network on February 3, 2007 to an audience of exactly 4.7 million viewers. Viacom announced, it "delivered Nickelodeon's highest-rated premiere in seven years" and instantly became one of the most favorable for children aged 6–11.[3][4] According to an article by TV reporter Jacques Steinberg, of The New York Times, the series' popularity is equivalent to Hannah Montana and Cory in the House. Three seasons aired and concluded unexpectedly on June 13, 2009 due to the network placing high demands on the family that would disrupt the siblings' schooling.[5] The series earned 1 Broadcast Music, Inc. Cable Award; 2 Writers Guild Award nominations, winning one WGA; 3 Young Artist Award nominations; and was nominated for 1 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award (both in the United States and United Kingdom).

It turns out that Bobby is just dating Rosalina to get to Nat and is lying about everything, i.e, his British accent, not writing his own songs, etc. Nat and Bobby fight and declare at a press conference that the charity event is now a competition and the losing band's proceeds from their next CD goes to the charity. After Nat's unsuccessful attempts to tell Rosalina the truth about Bobby, he and the band make fun of her and she quits. She tells Bobby what happened (what the band thought about him), then throws away her music into the garbage, and when no one is looking, Bobby pilfers it.

There is a net of balloons above the stage and Rosalina pulls the rope. Balloons fall all over Bobby's band and his fake identity is revealed because he is afraid of balloons and freaks out.

After Alex watched it, he became obsessed with saving the polar bears who were dying from global warming. Meanwhile, Nat starts hanging out with Little Grace, causing Rosalina (Allie DiMeco) and Qaasim to take it the wrong way—thinking he's in love with her. When Qaasim tries to flirt with Little Grace (with advice from Rosalina), it creates a problem for the three of them.

After the press conference, the media cancelled the concert. In the end, Nat found out that Rosalina thought he was in love with Grace. He then said, "No, I love you Rosalina, how could she not know I love her?" but Nat didn't know she was in the room the whole time. After that, Nat and Rosalina hug and kiss each other. The band then raises money at the state dinner and gives it to a charity that helps global warming.

After returning from her worldly travels, Rosalina gets a visit from Michel (Jake Hertzog), the french piano prodigy that Rosalina kissed on her cruise. Michel tries to persuade Rosalina to kiss her "goodbye" and when Nat sees this, he and Michel get into a brawl and Nat proudly almost breaks his finger. When Rosalina gets back, she yells at Nat for hurting Michel. She then breaks up with Nat and quits the band. This leads to the band members starting auditions for the "Naked Idol" television event, which is to find a new bass player, with videos of auditions over the computer and successfully narrow it down to three people. A girl named Kristina becomes the new bass player and Rosalina cries while watching this on TV in her room. Meanwhile, Alex is depressed because his life is passing him by and hosts an "Al-Expo," which is all about him. The movie ends with a cliffhanger; Rosalina was talking to Michel in the studio, explaining about how she's upset about leaving the band. Michel says that she's too good for the band anyway and Rosalina replies, "You know what, I'm too good for you" and leaves the studio. All the band members—except for Kristina—tell Nat that Rosalina has a change in heart and wants to rejoin the band.
