Variety!

CBS plans 'Big Brother' spinoff
Reality hit spawns new series for cable 'Brother' adds sister net

By JOSEF ADALIAN

It's Showtime for "Big Brother."

The CBS summer staple is expanding in a big way for its eighth season, with the Eye planning to launch a spinoff series on one of its cable nets.

"Big Brother: After Dark" will feature a live, unedited feed from the "Big Brother" house. Skein will run three hours nightly from midnight until 3 a.m. ET/PT on ShoToo, Showtime's widely available companion net.

Because there are so many cameras in the house capturing multiple storylines, an online producer will decide which cameras auds will see. Profanity and nudity will be allowed, but the feed will be interrupted if houseguests say anything slanderous or that violates music copyrights.

Because "Big Brother" originates from Los Angeles, the feed viewers see will feature activity taking place between 9 p.m. and midnight.

"That's primetime for the 'Big Brother' house," said exec producer-showrunner Allison Grodner. "It's when our houseguests are most wide awake and having fun, talking about strategy and playing the game. People are going to see quite a bit."

New extension of "Big Brother" will premiere July 5, the same night as the CBS version of the skein. CBS will once again run "Brother" three nights a week: Thursdays and Sundays at 8 p.m. and Tuesdays at 9.

Scheduling means the Eye's new low-rated "Pirate Master" will move to a new timeslot. "Pirate Master" will receive a special one-night airing after the "Big Brother" bow, then shift on July 10 to Tuesdays at 10 (where it once again will benefit from a "Big" lead-in).

Addition of "After Dark" continues the Eye's efforts to turn the "Big Brother" brand into as much of a multiplatform experience as possible:

* Live feeds from inside the house will continue to be streamed via the Internet. Eye is partnering again with RealNetworks, which will charge $14.99 per month for the feed.

* "House Calls," the Internet talk strip devoted to "Big Brother" will be back for its fourth season. Gretchen Massey will host.

* Full-length episodes of the show will be streamed via the CBS Audience Network to multiple Web sites. Eye will also let users post selected clips to blogs.

* Eye will offer several mobile-phone packages packed with "Big Brother" content, including one in which subscribers can get breaking news of major developments inside the house.

Grodner and Rich Meehan are the exec producers of "Big Brother" and produce in association with Endemol USA.

I heard that this year's twist will pit high school bullies against their victims.

Don't quote me on that, though!

If so, L-A-M-E! LoL

YAYAYAYAYAYA!

Love Big Brother.

I cannot wait for it to start.

I'm so getting the Showtime package for my DirecTV (I'll just get rid of it after BB ends). I probably won't even get the live feeds (I work most of the day ANYWAY) so the nighttime feed will be GREAT.

We'll see though. I have my fastest DSL connection yet so I want to see BB on it ... lol.

Anyway ... I'm not too stoked at the idea of highschool enemies. It has the potential to be REALLY ugly. Even uglier than BB6.

That's why I'm excited! LOL.

Enemies could be fun though. I swear if they put me in with my ex best friend or my one neighbor, it'd be so much drama. America would be pounding down the doors at CBS to see more.

I think this could be fun.

I just like the idea of everyone being strangers and nobody knowing anybody. Oh well. Whatever works for the sake of drama, I guess! LoL

Yeah. That is good, but I feel like going back to that would be a big step backwards at this point.

I'd even love secret partners again. It was so much fun! *THAT* is why the house was so divided in BB6! People were FORCED to pick sides!

My favorite reality show, BB! I can't wait, I will miss a week of it though due to going to the beach, unless I can get my parents to DVR them.

High school enemies? Assuming its true, that would be sweet. Theres the slight possibility that some of these individuals have grown up and have let go of any grudges against their enemies - that could backfire on BB big time.

I don't care what the twist is, I just know it will not be here soon enough! I cannot wait for the new season, what sucks is that I have to miss the eight oclock show so I will need updates!

Jokers is amazing with instant updates. I often miss the episodes due to work. Within minutes, the episode is usually up there.

I was on Jokers literally every five minutes refreshing, especially when Janey was on the block and then she'd win veto I'd get so excited, lol.

No one can replace Janey but I hope there's at least one person this season where I feel like that.

OH MY GOD.

Big Brother, Season One!

So hysterical... the show was so different! Look at Julie Chen sitting at her desk like she's giving a news report rather than hosting BB.

Julie's very first "But First": Clip One

Very First Nomination Ceremony: Clip Two

I didn't watch season 1 so that was hilarious Kenny!

I was getting concerned about the show coming back. I finally saw a promo a week or so back. I knew there was no way the show wouldn't be back this season. Oh I can't wait. :D
