Nick Jonas Set To Return To TV With Co-Starring Role In DirecTV’s New MMA Drama ‘Navy St.’

Nick Jonas

For the first time since the Disney Channel’s Jonas and Jonas L.A., Nick Jonas will be taking off his guest star hat and heading back to the small screen full time!

According to a story by The Hollywood Reporter, Nick is set to co-star in DirecTV’s Navy St., a gritty, family drama centered around a mixed martial arts gym in Venice, CA called Navy Street, run by Alvey Henderson (played by Frank Grillo), “a former fighter whose drug addiction prevented him from making it big.”

Nick will be playing Alvey’s son, Nate Henderson, a “shy kid who receives a UFC contract,” and is, subsequently, his “father’s pride and joy,” all while dealing with the impact of the addiction issues of his older brother, Jay (played by Jonathan Tucker), with whom he lives.

Kiele Sanchez, formerly of A&E’s The Glades, sits top-bill with Nick, and will be playing Lisa Prince, Alvey’s long-time girlfriend.

Production is set to begin May 5 in Los Angeles on a total of ten episodes and will air on DirecTV’s Audience Network in the fall. We can’t wait to find out more about this exciting new project for him! In the meantime, we’ll keep counting down the days until the season finale of Hawaii Five-0, where Nick will reprise his role as evil mastermind Ian Wright!

What do you think about this role for Nick? Can you see him as an MMA fighter? Just take a look at his healthy living selfie once again up there — we rest our case!
