As part of his recently announced deal with ABC, Mike Fleiss, creator and
executive producer of The Bachelor, is developing The Will, a reality series in which family members
compete to be the chosen recipient of a wealthy relative.
"This should give viewers a unique look at a real American family," Fleiss said. "The vote-outs between relatives should be intense."
This season, ABC has scored high ratings with The Bachelor's second
edition, which airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. The Will is set to air on ABC in
Fleiss, his production company (Next Entertainment) and Telepictures
Productions have a multiyear with ABC that calls for production of The
Will and another reality series, as well as development of a sitcom.
