WB adds two new shows to spring schedule

The WB network announced they will be premiering two new series this March, reality contest Survival of the Richest and relationship comedy Modern Men. Both shows will attempt to offer new twists on popular themes.

The romantic comedy Modern Men, premiering Friday, March 17, stars Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman) as a psychiatrist attempting to help "cure" three boyhood freinds of their grown-up women problems. Cheers alumnus George Wendt also shows up in this series from megaproducer Jerry Bruckheimer. A midseason replacement with a similar premise, ABC's Jake In Progress, starring John Stamos, was pulled from the schedule in its second season due to low ratings.

A combination of The Apprentice and Surreal Life could describe Survival of the Richest, premiering Friday, March 31. Survival pairs seven young rich people, worth a combined $3 billion, with seven poor young folks who carry a collective debt of $150,000. The group is forced to live together for six weeks and win competitions such as horse-race betting and charity house building. The show is hosted by Hal Sparks from Showtime's Queer as Folk.

WB recently announced it would cease operations and join UPN to become one network, to be called the CW. Many show creators and executives are still wondering where, or if, their shows will have a home next year on the fall schedule.
