U.S. broadcast net ABC will launch The Glass House, an interactive multi-platform competition series in which viewers will have the final say, on June 18.

In the Big Brother-esque series, executive produced by Kenny Rosen (Hell’s Kitchen and Big Brother), 14 contestents will live together in a wired, state-of-the-art house, and will compete for a quarter million dollars.

Viewers will support and follow the contestants they like through their social networks and on, and their votes determine which contestants are sent home and which eliminated players earn the chance to return to The Glass House.

In addition, viewers can watch a live online feed of the players and vote to decide on a myriad of components, from what players wear and eat to the games they play, even where they sleep.
