Reality TV Show "The Vineyard" Announced

This just in from the ABC Family channel, part of the Disney/ABC Television Network, in a press release announcing recently-approved new programming.

As posted on TV By the Numbers, the announcement reads: 

“The Vineyard,” a dramatic coming-of-age docu-soap, follows a handful of 20-somethings in Martha’s Vineyard for the summer.

Tight quarters, new friends and new rivals, all living, working and playing together, make this picturesque playground ripe for mischief and romance.

“The Vineyard” is created and executive-produced by Dave Broome (“Biggest Loser”) and Brian Smith (“Masterchef”). The series is produced by 25/7 Productions.

The day, time, cast and location for the show have yet to be announced.
