This is interesting.

The Glass House premieres June 18 on ABC.
ABC’s Glass House Looks Like The Big Brother House

If it looks like Big Brother and it sounds like Big Brother and it’s brought to you by a former producer of Big Brother … well, then it must be ABC’s answer to the popular CBS summer reality show. ABC has announced the June 18 premiere of The Glass House, a competition set in a house where contestants will be filmed 24-7 as they vie to be the last man standing. The winner takes $250,000.

ABC’s show blends the voyeurism of Big Brother with the viewer interaction of American Idol, allowing fans to vote on the action, including what the players eat and wear, where they sleep, and what games they play. It’s unclear whether one of the games will be “throwing stones.”

The Glass House is executive-produced by Kenny Rosen, who has worked on Big Brother and Hell’s Kitchen.

Meantime, Big Brother 14 will premiere July 12.

More.......... Oh boy, we're in trouble! I'll probably want to watch so that will be 4 different Big Brothers for me shoot_me


"The Glass House" is coming for you, "Big Brother." ABC has ordered new reality series "The Glass House," a "Big Brother"-esque competition series, hitting the air in June.

And in "The Glass House," viewers are in charge.

Fourteen contestants will live in a completely wired house and compete against each other for a $250,000 prize. The contestants must also impress the audience. Viewers' votes determine who goes home and the audiences can vote for their favorite player online and via social networks. Additionally, viewers have a say in which eliminated players get the chance to return to "The Glass House."

According to ABC, an online feed will be made available several times a week and viewers can vote on what the players wear, eat, what games they play and where they sleep. Feedback from viewers will also be made available to contestants.

Will you be tuning in to play puppet master with the contestants of "The Glass House"?

"The Glass House" premieres Mon., June 18, 10 p.m. ET on ABC.

oi vey. I don't see it lasting long (look how long that Amazing Race inspired show lasted on ABC). It'll be interesting to see if the trend of voting out the more interesting people holds up. Wonder if the show will have "feeds" or just be like a normal reality show? Actually, it reminds me of BB1 + that web show Seth Green did last year.

Wouldn't that be great? The free feeds are what got me hooked on BB during season 1.

CBS Lawyers Threaten ABC Over 'Big Brother'-Type Show 'Glass House'
In a cease-and-desist letter sent Friday to top ABC executives Anne Sweeney and Alan Braverman and obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, CBS says Life in a Glass House is "strikingly" similar to Big Brother.

I did wonder what CBS thought of this. Now I know. It does sound a lot like Big Brother. Especially BB1.

Interesting about the potential legal action from CBS. That Mike O'Sullivan is the Mike O guy the HG talked to/about during comps on the feeds, I believe. I wonder why he and others left BB?

The show is to begin airing next month and they are just now complaining? Will be interesting to see what happens. I was kinda hoping the rivalry would give us a stellar season of BB.

Yep, but I guess this one is a little messier do to people from BB being involved in the ABC incarnation, and it doesn't sound like a lot is different from the info we do have. That said, if CBS can sue over this, then ABC should get ready to sue The Talk (aka: The View 2.0)

CBS has followed through on its threat last week to bring a legal action against ABC over the planned reality show Glass House. CBS believes the show is a ripoff of its Big Brother and is being produced by a team that formerly worked on the long-running hit series.

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that the lawsuit was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, which suggests that CBS is alleging a federal copyright infringement claim.

CBS has followed through with its threat by suing ABC over its decision to develop Glass House, a new reality show suspiciously similar to the Eye’s long-running franchise Big Brother.

In the lawsuit filed Thursday in United States District Court, CBS alleges copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition and breach of fiduciary duty, among other complaints, against ABC and its parent, The Walt Disney Company. “If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” the suit begins, “then CBS should take pride in ABC’s latest reality TV project. Glass House, which remarkably employs at least 19 former producers and staff from CBS’ hit reality TV series Big Brother, is a carbon copy of Big Brother and an obvious attempt by Defendants to capitalize on its unique success. CBS therefore brings this action to halt and recover its damages from Defendants’ ongoing infringement of its rights in Big Brother.”

I kinda hope the lawsuit doesn't succeed ... I wouldn't mind CBS having a bit of competition in this area. I wonder if "Glass House" was planning on offering feeds? If not, I wouldn't be quite as interested ... the edited shows often completely misrepresent what is actually happening in the house and the feeds allow us to see that.

If this show has feeds, and they're better than CBS's/Real's version and actually stay up closer to 24 hours (or at least have less cuts), then maybe it'd force BB to treat their feed users better. Last season and season 12 were horrible to watch.

No live feeds but it looks like there will be live streaming for portions of the week?
Quote :
How often does the Live Stream occur?
Monday for 4 hours from 8pm to 12am (PST) and again from Tuesday – Thursday at 12pm (PST)

There are only going to be 10 episodes? Sooo ... once a week network show?

I agree with them. So many shows are similiar to each other. They are just hurting themselves with this attitude imo.

No way they are going to build an audience like Big Brother does.
Audience voting was kind of a dud on BB1, but maybe that is their only hope to generate interest.

Thanks for posting that, Kay! I only watched a few videos and didn't find anyone I felt was 'must-see' for me, but I do plan on watching when it starts to see what it's all about (and how it compares to BB, of course, lol)!

ABC's 'Glass House' Producer Grilled in 7-Hour Deposition About 'Big Brother'
CBS is making several key moves in its legal fight to stop ABC's strangers-living-together reality competition from airing.

Despite the lawsuit, ABC has moved forward with advertising the show and announcing the cast. But behind the scenes, an urgent legal drama is playing out. CBS is pulling out all the stops trying to prevent the show from airing, filing a motion May 31 to get the court's permission to expedite the fact-finding process in preparation for a motion for preliminary injunction. ABC has fired back with its own court filing.
