Louis Walsh and Kian Egan's quest to launch a new girl band will be chronicled in a new reality TV show 'The Management'
Louis Walsh is getting his own reality show.
The 'X Factor' judge will be joined by Westlife singer Kian Egan for two-part ITV2 programme, 'The Management', which follows the pair's attempts to launch a new girl band.
Louis - who previously teamed together Girls Aloud - and Kian are currently hunting for wannabe singers to be in the band.
The show will air in October.
Despite launching a new female vocal group, Louis - who also manages Westlife, Boyzone and Jedward - has previously claimed he finds women difficult to work with.
He said: "They're high-maintenance. It's easier to manage boy bands.
"Less hairspray, less make-up, less baggage."
Kian has been managing a girl group featuring his wife Jodi Albert and previously admitted he is "controlling" of the way they are styled.
He said: "I'll certainly be very controlling of their image because I think a lot of girl bands now are way too tarted up. If you look at Girls Aloud's last tour, it's too oversexed.
"Jodi's is more of a classic catwalk Gucci look. That's the sort of sexiness I want to achieve with them."
