ABC will launch its six-episode unscripted one-hour series “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” Sunday, July 10 and begin the reality teen survival series “Brat Camp” with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, July 13.

“Neighborhood” brings seven very different families to an Austin, Texas cul-de-sac where the three existing families on the block get to choose who will move into the one available house. The families vying for the free home include a gay couple with a multiracial adopted child, a pagan family and a tattooed-covered family of three who are staunch republicans.

“Neighborhood” is from MGM, New Screen Concepts and the Jay and Tony Show Productions. Rob Lee, Chuck Bangert, Lou Gorfain, Jay Blumenfield and Tony Marsh are executive producing.

“Camp” profiles a group of troubled teens age 14 to 17 who participate in SageWalk, a 50-day wilderness school. While traveling through miles of Oregon wilderness, the teens are helped by SageWalk guides and therapists.

“Camp,” based on the U.K. series from Twenty Twenty Productions, is from Shapiro/Grodner Productions, with Arnold Shapiro and Allison Grodner serving as executive producers.
