American broadcaster ABC is set to launch a new reality competition series hosted by and revolving around celebrity siblings.

Claim to Fame is co-hosted by Kevin Jonas, one of the members of the pop-rock band the Jonas Brothers, and his non-bandmate brother, Frankie. The series will take 12 relatives of celebrities and put them together under one roof. The contestants will conceal their identities and lineages from each other as they compete in challenges and form alliances in pursuit of a $100,000 prize.

Kinetic Content (Love Is Blind, Married at First Sight) produces the new series in association with Walt Disney Television’s newly formed alternative production unit. Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler and Scott Teti are executive producers, with Paul Osborne serving as showrunner and executive producer, and Brian Smith working as director and executive producer.

As a member of the Jonas Brothers, Kevin Jonas was featured on Disney Channel titles including the reality series Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream, and has also appeared in his own reality series Married to Jonas as well as on The Celebrity Apprentice. Frankie, meanwhile, has launched his own music career in recent years, and now boasts a large following on the social media platform TikTok.
