ABC picks up Secret Millionaire from Fox

ABC has picked up the format to Secret Millionaire, the reality show that aired six episodes on Fox last December. It features rich people going undercover and living as if they were poor before surprising their new friends with money and returning to their wealthy lives.

After Fox didn’t order a second season, ABC bought six episodes from producer RDF USA, which “will resume production later this year for a midseason launch,” Variety reports.
