ABC Renames ‘High School’ Contest Show

ABC’s highly anticipated music contest show this summer has a new working title: High School Musical: Get in the Picture. Along with the title change also comes word of what the network will award the show’s grand prize winner.
A million dollars? No. A recording contract with a major music label? No. A featured role in the touring production of HSM? Nope.
Okay…drum roll, please. Here’s what the winner gets, according to ABC’s press release: “He or she will literally ‘get in the picture’ when that person appears in a music video shown in the end credits of the feature film, Disney’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year, opening this fall.”
Anti-climactic, perhaps. But at least the winner will be able to shake hands with–if not get a hug from–the show’s recently announced host, teen heart throb Nick Lachey.
Executive produced by Jay Blumenfeld and Tony Marsh (Here Come the Newlyweds), HSM: Get in the Picture premieres Sunday, July 20, from 8-9 p.m., and runs Sundays and Mondays for three weeks in that time slot, then continues on Mondays at 8 p.m.
