Over the past several weeks, a partnership between One Direction and NBCUniversal has generated ample exposure for the group’s “FOUR” album.
Inclusive of a launch day “TODAY” show appearance and an upcoming return to the “Saturday Night Live” stage, the partnership reaches its climax with a primetime special on December 23.
“One Direction: The TV Special,” which will air from 8-9PM ET on NBC, “will offer a rare inside look at the wildly popular band through a combination of documentary material, comical stunts and musical performances.” Viewers will receive access to behind-the-scenes footage from the South American leg of the group’s “Where We Are Tour” and from the “FOUR” recording process.
The special will also capture One Direction’s recent concert at the Universal Orlando Resort.
“We’re really proud of our first TV Special. We had a great time filming the different parts both in Orlando and on the road in South America. We can’t wait for our fans to see it,” said 1D in a statement about the special.
In support of the upcoming special, NBC issued a number of first look photos. Those follow:
