ABC Readying Its Own Version of the 'Big Brother' Formula TheWrap

ABC will debut a "Big Brother"-like show next month, with contestants living under the same roof and trying to outlast each other, reports TheWrap.com.

Set for a June 18 premiere, "The Glass House" will include a significant social network element, the story notes.

The show is executive produced by Kenny Rosen, who previously worked on "Big Brother" and "Hell's Kitchen," the story notes. Viewer interaction is emphasized in "The Glass House," with fans allowed to vote and track the 14 players online and through social networks.

Fans will also be able to dictate some of the action, such as voting to decide on what players should eat and what games they should play, the story says. The winner will receive what the article calls the relatively modest prize of $250,000.
