ABC plans show that will let relatives compete for inheritance.
Mike Fleiss, producer of The Bachelor, is planning a show for ABC under his Next Entertainment label that will find relatives and friends competing for a living relative’s inheritance. The Will will follow “[f]amily members and friends who take part in the series will be put through a series of challenges each week, many of them designed by the benefactor,” Variety reports. The contenders will also be able to vote each other out of the game, and thus out of the will. The show is currently seeking a benefactor for the show, and is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who recommends the person who is ultimately selected.
