Parents take over school formal in new reality show
biggest day of a young teen’s life has just been hijacked by her parents. Filming has commenced on Channel 7’s new fly-on-the-wall reality series Formal Wars, which debuts in 2013. High school graduates celebrating the end of their school days account for an industry estimated to be worth $3 billion a year. This experience is turned on its head for the girls in Formal Wars. In every young woman’s worst nightmare, the formal will be hijacked by their parents. In a radical experiment of generational trust, mums and dads, daughters and sons put their faith in each other as parents choose everything from the dress to their date, hair, make-up and arrival. Do their parents know them well enough to ensure a great night? Or will they embarrass them in front of all their friends? Formal Wars is an original format by Matchbox Pictures for Channel Seven.
Coming in 2013, Seven, Prime7.
