TV Land Announces New Reality Series 'Forever Young' from Katalyst and 3 Ball Productions

Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson Exec-Produce Six-Episode Series That Teams Septuagenarians With 20-Somethings In A Unique Social Experiment

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 -- TV Land today announced it has picked up the new reality series "Forever Young" from Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg's Katalyst ("Punk'd," "True Beauty"), and 3 Ball Productions 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 W. Jones, president, TV Land. "The contestants in 'Forever Young' have challenging, touching but mostly hilarious interactions that make for some good, clean fun."

JD Roth, executive producer and CEO, 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks US, said, "We're so excited to be bringing this Eyeworks format to the US, and to be working on 'Forever Young' with TV Land - a network that knows a thing or two about how family and generational dynamics play out on television. As a producer, it's extremely gratifying to be working in partnership with a visionary parent company and a creative channel to adapt the types of shows that resonate with audiences all over the world.

"Katalyst is thrilled to join the TV Land team. We're all about pushing the boundaries of social belief systems and this show will do just that by placing different generations in situations that will create great comedy along with some poignant moments," said Jason Goldberg, partner and CEO, Katalyst.

Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher serve as executive producers for Katalyst. JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are executive producers for 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks US. Eliot Goldberg and Marco Bresaz serve as executive producers for TV Land.
