TV LAND SETS OUT TO SHRINK THE GENERATION GAP IN “FOREVER YOUNG”
New Unscripted Series Premieres Wednesday, April 3 At 10pm ET/PT
New York, NY – February 22, 2013 – Two generations collide on the most unexpected spring break ever on “Forever Young,” TV Land’s new half-hour unscripted series. The six-episode series seeks to discover what happens when two different generations – five “juniors” under the age of 30 and five “seniors” over age 70 – brave the challenge of living together in the same house. “Forever Young” is from Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg’s Katalyst (“Punk’d,” “Beauty and the Geek”) and Eyeworks USA, headed by Executive Producers JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson (“Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition”), and will premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, April 3rd at 10pm ET/PT.
“As TV Land continues to produce original series, we are broadening our horizons and looking at both scripted and unscripted shows,” said TV Land President Larry W. Jones. “‘Forever Young’ is the perfect example of what TV Land values in its original programming: an intriguing concept with humor and heart at its core.”
“Forever Young” chronicles five seniors – Lou, Emileen, Eugene, Shirley and Arthur – and five “juniors” – Mike, Christian, Andree, Sam and Angelina – as they embark on a journey to try to identify with the other generation. Teaching seniors how to master the techniques of beer pong and explaining to juniors that you can’t zoom in on a paper map may be more difficult than originally thought. Will the generation gap prove too big to cross with attitudes like “I can’t learn anything from you” flowing freely in the house?
Through tasks that will bond or break them, the housemates will learn to open up and share more of themselves with their counterparts than they ever thought possible. The generations may differ in fashion, technology, lifestyle and etiquette, but they will both learn at least one thing: how to stay “Forever Young.”
