Sending the group on multiple missions, Nick Cannon gives the guys a boot camp on making it in the music industry with a relentless schedule of rehearsals, recording sessions and live performances. He's brought a manager, Marty, on board to make sure the group gets to where they need to be, but who often ends up side-tracking Nick's agenda with his own misadventures.
