The members of the New Kids on the Block are on a boat. And cameras will be there to capture it all.

The TV Guide Network announced Tuesday that it will air "Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block," an eight-episode docu-series that chronicles a week-long "vacation of a lifetime" for fans of the band. There's also a 30-minute casting special as part of the series.

To keep with the '80s throwback theme, TV Guide also picked up "Unusually Thicke," a 14-episode series about former "Growing Pains" star Alan Thicke and his family, including his red-hot singer son, Robin Thicke.

And former "Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will appear in a TV Guide series about his family.

GTL forever.
