The Naked Brothers Band is a 2005 American musical comedy film written and directed by Polly Draper which stars her sons, Nat Wolff and Alex Wolff, who portray members of a fictional rock group, despite being actually documented in the year, 2003. It tells of the boys' struggles with their fame and an internal dispute that causes the band to split before reuniting in the end. The film was emboldened by Nat's genuine band, The Silver Boulders, which he created in preschool with his friends who all portray themselves alongside Nat's faux female interest, the siblings' real life cousin as the babysitter, and their real life father as their inept accordion-playing dad. Draper shot the film in the style of a mockumentary—a parody in documentary format—that depicts the daily activities of the characters. Nat composed and performed the music, though one song had been written by Alex. Principal photography took place in mid-2004 on location in New York City, and the interior scenes were vastly filmed in the family's Manhattan apartment. Draper's brother, Tim, a venture capitalist, provided financial incentives for the shoot. In late 2005, Polly Draper, star of Thirtysomething, and her jazz musician husband Michael Wolff, entered the film in the Hamptons International Film Festival, where it won the audience award for a family feature film. Albie Hecht, former Nickelodeon president and founder of Spike TV, was in the audience and commissioned the movie, in affiliation with his Worldwide Biggies label. It became the pilot for the potential Nickelodeon show of the same name, airing in the United States on January 27, 2007. The series was created and produced by Draper and premiered in February 2007, to the channel's highest ratings in seven years for viewers in the 6–11 age group.
