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.
