The Actual Homes of This Real Neighborhood will be Surrounded by a Massive 20-Foot Wall as They Compete for the $250,000 Grand Prize

CBS today announced the eight families set to compete in THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a new seven episode reality-competition series, premiering Sunday, Aug. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series features these eight families living in their actual suburban neighborhood while being surrounded by a massive 20-foot wall as they compete in games for the grand prize of $250,000.

The eight families competing, listed in alphabetical order, are:

In what promises to be the ultimate social and family bonding experiment, the actual homes will be cut off from the outside world as it becomes family vs. family in a competition to win upgrades for their lives and their homes. With virtually no electricity and no ability to text-message, watch television or surf the internet, these families will be forced to reconnect and work together as a team. For the duration of the competition, the eight homes will be surrounded by the daunting 20-foot wall with no way in or out. The families will compete against their neighbors in the game, with one family eliminated each week, until the victorious group remains to claim the $250,000 grand prize.

THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD is produced by Next Entertainment and Jay Bienstock Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor," "High School Reunion") and Jay Bienstock ("The Apprentice, Supervising Producer, "SURVIVOR") are the executive producers. Matt Rogers ("American Idol," "Really Big Things") is the host.
