    WE TV Singer Bruno Mars' sisters, Jamie, left, Presley, Tahiti and Tiara Hernandez, will star in a reality series on WE tv documenting the recording of the Lylas' (it stands for "Love You Like a Sister") debut album.

The female-centric cable network WE tv recently announced that Bruno Mars‘ four sisters from Hawaii, who sing as The LYLAS, will be appearing in a reality series documenting the recording of their debut album in Los Angeles.

The show about The LYLAS (an acronym for Love You Like a Sister) will air this fall and consist of eight hourlong episodes.

As reported back in early March on the Hono­lulu Pulse website, filming was scheduled to begin later that month, according to eldest sister Jamie Kailani Bayot, who already lives in L.A. with her family. She is joined by her younger sisters Tiara, Tahiti and PresleyHernandez, who have all moved from Hawaii and will live together under one roof.

"It will pretty much show us four being sisters, all together, as real as can be," Bayot said last month. "We chose to go with the WE network because they emphasize family."

WE tv specializes in programming about celebrity families, such as singer Toni Braxton in "Braxton Family Values," and Joan and MelissaRivers in "Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best?"

The Hernandez sisters used to perform as youngsters in their parents’ Waikiki showroom revue, along with their pre-Bruno Mars brother Peter, better known then as one of the youngest Elvis impersonators.

Mars reportedly moved from Hawaii to Los Angeles to live with sister Jamie in 2002 after he graduated from Roosevelt High School. Eight years later his musical career skyrocketed with No. 1 hits "Just the Way You Are" and "Grenade," and his smash debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans."

There is no word if the sisters’ now-superstar brother will appear in their upcoming series.
