LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 09/05/13 -- Move over Justin Timberlake -- Glenn Douglas Packard (www.glenndouglaspackard.com) is now the guy bringing SexyBack!

The multi-talented, Emmy-nominated choreographer the New York Times dubbed a "dancing entrepreneur" is bringing sexy to a whole new level, partnering with 98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons on "Men of the Strip" (www.menofthestrip.com) -- an explosive, revolutionary new live male revue entertainment extravaganza. Like all of Packard's high-energy productions, the show will feature a full spectrum of fresh choreography, sexy numbers, singing and dancing by each of the performers, a wide range of music and dynamic Cirque du Soleil-like elements.

Drawing on the unique casting aesthetic of Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync impresario Lou Pearlman, Packard did an extensive search via casting and modeling agencies in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York and Miami to find the perfect cast to launch "Men of the Strip" on a multi-media platform. That platform includes a currently in development reality TV show, an extensive promotional tour and, ultimately, a residency on the Vegas Strip.

Packard is perhaps best known on the cultural landscape for his reality TV turn as Brooke Hogan's openly gay roommate on the 2008-9 VH1 show "Brooke Knows Best."

Packard met Timmons when both were working on Mission Man Band, a 2007 VH1 series about launching a new band with various members from successful pop acts. "With 'Magic Mike' blowing up in pop culture, Jeff and I jumped on the ability to step it up and create our own male revue," says Packard.

A scholarship student of Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theatre in NYC, Packard brings a powerhouse all-star resume to the development of "Men of the Strip." Emmy-nominated for "Best Choreography" for his work on the concert and TV presentation "Michael Jackson's 30th Anniversary Celebration" (an all-star tribute to the King of Pop, his live stage and video productions include work with Ricky Martin, P!nk, Usher, Missy Elliot, Daddy Yankee and the late Whitney Houston.

Packard is also a spokesman for The Bullying Academy, which includes giving many speeches in schools and for public organizations.
