ABC announced today it will air its own summer competition, The Glass House, that sounds a lot like Big Brother Season 1. The winner of The Glass House will get $250,000 (and I thought BB was cut-rate for not making the prize a million). The Glass House will start production in late May and premiere Monday, June 18 at 10PM following The Bachelorette, and will run through August 20th. Like Big Brother, 14 contestants will live in a house monitored by cameras that observe their every move. As in Season 1 of Big Brother, the viewers will vote to evict the houseguest. There won't be 24/7 feeds like Big Brother, but there will be occasional online live streams from inside the house and viewers will have a chance to influence who stays, who gets a chance to come back, what games they play, what the contestants wear, where they sleep, etc. I've read that The Glass House is being produced by a former Big Brother producer, but I didn't see any mention of a name. I doubt former BB producer Arnold Shapiro is behind it, and if anyone finds out who is producing, I'd be interested to know. This isn't the first time ABC tried to mimic a CBS hit, anyone remember Expedition Impossible last summer? Update: Kenny Rosen, whose credits include Big Brother and Hell's Kitchen, will executive produce for Keep Calm and Carry On Prods., an in-house company that is also producing Duets.
