Disney Spices Up ABC Family


The Walt Disney Co. isn't wasting any time in adding edgier programming to
ABC Family, the former Fox Family Channel.

The network picked up The Last Resort, a reality series featuring four
bickering couples, for an August debut.

'The four participating couples are on the brink of separation and must
decide by the end of the week whether they should remain in their
relationships,' ABC Family wrote in the release about the show, which was
produced on location in Hawaii by Disney sister Buena Vista Productions. Three
of the couples have children.

At the end of the release, the network noted that it 'features quality,
contemporary entertainment for all members of the family.'
