‘Big Brother’ renewed for two more seasons by CBS
MUMBAI: US broadcaster CBS has renewed the reality show ‘Big Brother’ for its 17th and 18th editions for broadcast in summer 2015 and 2016. The series is hosted by Julie Chen.
CBS executive VP, alternative programming Chris Castallo said, “Big Brother continues to be the one of the summer’s most dominant programs, and with each season, Allison and Rich produce the most twisted ways to evolve the series creatively. With its one-of-a-kind format, coupled with its passionate, socially engaged fan base, no other show comes close to duplicating it.”
‘Big Brother After Dark’, the fan after-show for ‘Big Brother’ with a live late-night look inside the house, has also been renewed for next summer. ‘Big Brother After Dark’ will air exclusively on Pop, a new cable network (currently known as TVGN) launching in 2015.
‘Big Brother’ follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 76 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones recording their every move, 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests vote someone out of the house. The last remaining Houseguest will receive $500,000.
