Par­ents take over school for­mal in new re­al­ity show

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

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.
