ABC’s The Will moves to CBS.
Apparently, ABC’s The Family, a series where a family competed for inheritance, wasn’t the previously announced and similar-sounding series called The Will. ABC’s reality guy Mike Fleiss has taken The Will to CBS, which is now casting for “someone with a sizable fortune and a substantial sense of humor to be the Benefactor of this program in which his or her family will compete to be named the heir to a fortune.” E! reports that ABC and CBS aren’t talking about why the show switched networks; a CBS spokesperson just states the obvious and says it was “developed at ABC and then Mike Fleiss brought it here.”
