Every closed orientable 3-manifold can be constructed by surgery on a link in S3. In the case of surgery along a torus knot, one obtains a Seifert fibered manifold. In this paper we consider three families of such manifolds and study their unified Witten- Reshetikhin-Turaev (WRT) invariants. Thanks to recent computation of the coefficients in the cyclotomic expansion of the colored Jones polynomial for (2, 2t + 1)-torus knots, these WRT invariants can be neatly expressed as q-hypergeometric series which converge inside the unit disk. Using the Rosso-Jones formula and some rather non-standard techniques for Bailey pairs, we find Hecke-type formulas for these invariants. We also comment on their mock and quantum modularity.
