CBS launching “There Goes the Neighborhood” 8/9

0

The new seven episode reality-competition series, premieres Sunday, Aug. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), featuring eight families in a suburban neighborhood who are enclosed by a massive 20-foot wall as they compete in family-friendly games for the grand prize of $250,000.


In what promises to be the ultimate social and family bonding experiment, this neighborhood will be cut off from the outside world as it becomes family vs. family in a competition to win upgrades for their lives and their homes.  With virtually no electricity and no ability to text message, watch television or surf the internet, these families will be forced to reconnect and work together as a team. 

For the duration of the competition, the eight homes will be surrounded by the daunting wall with no way in or out.  The families will compete against their neighbors in the game, with one family eliminated each week, until the victorious group remains to claim the $250,000 grand prize.
