"It's very exciting for us. It's been in the works for a while," Nick told "Access Hollywood." "It is now about us being a band and balancing a normal life. They give us freedom to add our humor in it. We're just honored to have the opportunity to try the acting thing. We're musicians. ... Acting is a new thing for us."
And although the boys have a sense of humor, they admit that taking their act to the small screen hasn't been all that easy.
"I'm very hard on myself when it comes to acting," Nick said. "Trying to capture my own personal sense of humor, in real life, it's very dry humor. But sometimes I can't quite master that on camera."
Joe mirrored his younger brother's skepticism about their comedic styling, saying, "We're trying our best, and we'll see the outcome. We really enjoy it ... but this gives us the opportunity to keep the music involved."
The boys will also be taking their act to a theater near you next month when they release "Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience," which they say will give fans a good idea of what it's like to be a Jonas Brother.
"It gets some really personal things in there," Nick said of the movie. "There's one scene in particular where it captures all the things that we went through in Times Square in New York City on our album-release night, which was one of the craziest scenes. I think it's the only footage in the world of it."
The guys may have a lot on their plate with a TV show set to premiere and a movie about to be released, but Kevin revealed that the guys might have one more project in the works.
"We have an amazing stylist. ... She's worked with us for almost two years, and we've really built a look together," he said. "It translates to the show as well, but more than that, we are just really happy that we have a certain kind of clothes that we like. We like what we like. You never know, we might be working on our own clothing line here and there. We really like that whole aspect."
