Even Bigger Losers Coming to ABC

Oct 23, 2009  •  Post A Comment

ABC wants to go one up on NBC’s “Biggest Loser,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The network has ordered a new show from "Biggest Loser" executive producer J.D. Roth, tentatively named “Obese,” in which participants who are extremely overweight will attempt to lose hundreds of pounds in the course of a year with the help of a personal trainer.

The show isn’t expected to see air before 2011 and ABC won’t see footage for a year.

Each of six episodes will tell one person’s story; some are expected to shed half of their weight, with no contest involved.
