"Secret Millionaire" gets second chance on ABC

By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Reality series "Secret Millionaire" has been picked up by ABC, the network confirmed Thursday.

The show, based on an U.K. format, features wealthy benefactors living incognito in impoverished communities until they reveal their real identities and donate large sums to the needy.

"Secret Millionaire" had a limited run on Fox in December but wasn't renewed for a second cycle.

It's considered a better fit for ABC, whose reality slate is built on feel-good fare. The network is ordering six episodes of the show.
