Totally Boyband was a television programme that aired in the United Kingdom on MTV. The programme debuted on 18 September 2006 and aired on Sunday nights at 21:30 (GMT). The premise centred on the former members of boy bands and pop music bands attempting to regain their former fame by regrouping into a new band called Upper Street. A single called "The One (That Got Away)" was released on 23 October 2006, but spent only one week at number 35 (lower than any of the members' previous groups previous positions, with the exception of Jimmy Constable) after entering the UK Singles Chart on 29 October.
The participants were:
- Dane Bowers of Another Level
- Jimmy Constable of 911
- Lee Latchford-Evans of Steps
- Bradley McIntosh of S Club
- Danny Wood of New Kids on the Block
The single was later recorded without the help of Latchford-Evans, who was sacked by the rest of the band before their debut release due to a disagreement. He described the band's manager in the program, Jonathan Shalit as "two-faced".
It was announced in October 2006, that US music network VH1 would be producing its own version of the show, titled Mission: Man Band with Bryan Abrams (Color Me Badd), Rich Cronin (LFO), Chris Kirkpatrick (*NSYNC) and Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees).
