High School Musical Reality Show in the Works

by at . Comments

Considering the nature of reality TV, we're surprised ABC isn't planning a series based on overweight housewives being sent back to high school and forced to sing alongside the team mascots.

Instead, the network's pitch for a High School Musical-themed reality show attempts to mirror the overwhelmingly successful Disney franchise.

The proposed reality competition, set to air this summer, would be a nationwide talent hunt, followed by a group of contestants studying at a music conservatory to hone their skills.

Like American Idol, High School Musical contestants will be eliminated each week until a winning performer is chosen. We're guessing Zac Efron won't be eligible.

Overall, the High School Musical franchise will reach $650 million in sales this year. High School Musical 3, the first film in the series to be released in theaters, is due out on October 24.

High School Musical Quotes

Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around. And it's our senior year, so we've got graduation and prom to look forward to. All fun things to have in a movie.

Zac Efron [on High School Musical 3]

You never know with teenage girls. It's funny. But they're always, most of the time they're pretty respectful, and I love 'em. I'm very grateful.
