By John Bracchitta, 11/03/2008
CBS is getting back in business with The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss.
The network has ordered an untitled seven-episode reality competition series from Fleiss' Next Entertainment, Varietyreported Monday.
The show -- which is currently being cast and doesn't have an air date yet -- will feature a neighborhood of families as they compete against each other for a grand prize, according to Variety.
The series is also the first major series order for Jennifer Bresnan, who replaced Ghen Maynard as CBS' reality programming chief in August, Variety noted.
Next Entertainment will produce the show with Warner Horizon.
Fleiss last worked with CBS on The Will, a 2005 six-episode reality series that featured ten friends and family members of Arizona multi-millionaire Bill Long competing to inherit his Kansas ranch. It was canceled after only one broadcast.
