NBC just wrapped up its fall 2010 orders by picking up a reality show called School Pride from Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Denise Cramsey (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition). The feel-good series will give communities the chance to fix up their aging schools and was inspired by a similar (though untelevised) effort in Compton, Calif., in which the locals spruced up a local campus.
Just like what happens on ABC’s Home Edition, camera crews will follow volunteers as they turn around a school. The show was announced as an NBC special earlier this year.
NBC is expected to announce its fall lineup Monday in New York.
