Male strippers reveal the behind-the-scenes drama on E! Entertainment in new docu-soap, Men of the Strip, on Sunday, 24 August at 20:00.

American male strippers allow cameras behind the scenes in a new two hour docu-soap, Men of the Strip, on E! Entertainment (DStv 124).

The (literally) revealing docu-reality programme follows a troupe of strippers as they prepare, practice, and try to start a permanent "male revue" show in Las Vegas.

The two hour Men of the Strip (interestingly one of the star male strippers already died in June), follows the process - from auditions and casting to the choreography, dance training, to the eventual show - of the male stripping group Men of the Strip started by the former 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons.

The male dancers are Chris Boudreaux, Joel Saijun, Nate Estimada (now deceased), Kyle Efthemes, Derek North, Keith Webb and Charles Dera.

They hope to find a permanent show on the Vegas Strip while cameras capture the grueling rehearsals, personal and private issues, and the eventual performance where the clothes come off.

Men of the Strip is produced by Brian Graden Media with Brian Graden, Lois Curren, Gaurav Misra and Leane Vandeman as executive producers.
