Big Brother copycat ?

Sounds like it to me, although we can't have too many of this type of reality show. If they can clear the legal hurdles I'll watch, of course, without sched. conflicts hopefully.

CBS Warns ABC Over Alleged ‘Big Brother’ Copycat Series

LOS ANGELES (AP) — CBS is warning rival network ABC that an upcoming reality series copies “Big Brother” too closely and violates copyrights and other agreements with former staffers.
Attorneys for CBS sent a letter warning of consequences if ABC continues to develop “The Glass House.” The show focuses on contestants who are constantly filmed and eliminated from a home they share.

The letter notes the format is substantially similar to “Big Brother,” which has aired on CBS since 2000.

The letter obtained by The Associated Press and other news outlets
states that 18 former “Big Brother” staffers and executives are now
working on “Glass House.” CBS says that may violate nondisclosure
agreements they signed.

ABC had no comment on CBS’ allegations.

CBS’ warning to ABC was first reported Friday by The Hollywood Reporter.

Not my cup of tea. Have enough going on to watch my life let alone wanting to see other people's "drama". :P
