The new reality series “Forever Young” from Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg’s Katalyst (“Punk’d,” “True Beauty”), and 3 Ball Productions, is headed by Executive Producers JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson (“The Biggest Loser,” “MasterChef”).
The producers have previously teamed on their long-running hit “Beauty and the Geek,” and they are known for creating series that challenge society’s preconceptions about beauty, image and what people ultimately can achieve. Now, the six-episode reality competition “Forever Young” takes on ageism as it explores the generations’ ideas and misconceptions about each other.
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.
“Ashton, Jason, JD and Todd’s take on the generation gap facing Americans today is brilliant,” said Larry Jones, president, TV Land. “The contestants in ‘Forever Young’ have challenging, touching but mostly hilarious interactions that make for some good, clean fun.”
