TV Land has greenlit Forever Young, a new reality competition series that addresses ageism.
The six-episode docu-soap was created by 3 Ball Productions — the brainchild of prankster Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, J.D. Roth, and Todd A. Nelson. The producers previously collaborated on the long-running CW hit Beauty and the Geek and are known for creating series that challenge society’s preconceptions about beauty, image and what people ultimately can achieve.
The show will feature duos of seniors and twentysomethings, who will bond and the engage in competition against other mixed-age duos.
“Part reality show, part social experiment, Forever Young bridges the generation gap as ‘Juniors’ and ‘Seniors’ work together to experience each other’s point of view and find out just how much they do — or don’t — have in common. When separated by five decades, six wars and 10 presidents, Forever Young explores how revealing and how funny it can be when youth and wisdom join forces, whether in appreciation of the past, understanding the present or preparing for the future,” the network divulged in a press statement issued last week.
Forever Young is scheduled to premiere on the small screen later this year.
