"Secret Millionaire," which tracks successful U.S. business executives as they spend a week in some of the country’s poorest areas and then reveal their identities and give away their own money, has been given a six-episode run starting in March, reports Deadline.com.
The show will be heavily promoted during the broadcast of the Academy Awards, which will air the weekend before, the story notes. For ABC, the Oscars are its most-watched telecast and its biggest promotional opportunity for its primetime shows, the article adds.
ABC is also asking Zodiak USA, the producer of "Secret Millionaire," to start casting for a new cycle, which may indicate that the network wants more than the original six episodes it ordered, the story says. The show will air on Sundays at 8 p.m., which means that "Home Edition" won’t air repeats and will return to Sundays with originals after the hiatus.
