ABC is developing a High School Musical-themed reality competition series that is being targeted for broadcast this summer, Daily Variety reported Sunday.

Production will begin with a nationwide casting search followed by selected participants studying at a music conservatory, Variety reported, adding contestants will be booted from the competition on a weekly basis until a winner is chosen.  How the contestants will be eliminated or what the grand prize will be remains unknown, according to Variety.

While ABC is "in discussions" with a production company to work on the project, Variety reported a deal has yet to be finalized.

The reality series' airing on ABC would represent the first time Disney Channel has "shared" its High School Musical franchise with a sister network, Variety reported. (Disney Channel and ABC are both part of The Walt Disney Company's Disney-ABC Television Group.)

Consumer products related to High School Musical will reach $650 million in sales this year, according to Variety.
