HOME > High School Musical: Summer Session

ABC reveals 'High School Musical' reality series prize, tweaks title

By Christopher Rocchio, 05/11/2008 

ABC has announced the winner of its new High School Musical-themed reality competition series will appear in the music video shown in the end credits of Disney's High School Musical 3: Senior Year feature film scheduled to open in theaters this fall.

In addition, ABC has also changed the title of the show from High School Musical: Summer Session to High School Musical: Get in the Picture to reflect the grand prize.

High School Musical: Get in the Picture will premiere Sunday, July 20 at 8PM ET/PT and air twice-a-week on Sundays and Mondays at 8PM ET/PT for three weeks.  The show will then continue its broadcast run in the Mondays at 8PM ET/PT time period for the remainder of the summer.

Following a nationwide casting search for interested applicants ages 16 to 22-years-old -- which obviously goes well past the age of most high school students -- High School Musical: Get in the Picture will follow a group of finalists selected to attend the show's "summer music program." 

The finalists will then hone their skills and compete against one another in various challenges in an effort to avoid elimination.

High School Musical: Get in the Picture will be hosted by Nick Lachey and the show's judges will be announced at a later date.

ABC began developing a High School Musical-themed reality competition series last month and tapped The Jay and Tony Show production company's Jay Blumenfeld and Tony Marsh to serve as executive producers. 

High School Musical: Get in the Picture represents the first time Disney Channel has shared its High School Musical franchise with a sister network. (Disney Channel and ABC are both part of The Walt Disney Company's Disney-ABC Television Group.)
