KIDS IN POWER
TLV • MARCH 2018
Gil Formats has secured a new deal with El Terrat in Spain for its factual entertainment format ‘Kids in Power’. The format was previously picked up in Germany by Eldorado TV.
‘Kids in Power’ is in co-development with South Korean leading media company, CJ E&M, which aired its first adaptation on tvN in Korea. It is a social experiment which aims to transform the lives of families in which parents struggle with their kids’ behavior.
This Parenting Format sees families reverse roles, and over a period of 1 week, the parents delegate absolute authority to children on all matters of the household: they set the rules, manage the money, and make calls on nutrition, screen time and chores.
The experiment is observed by the two experts that originated it – a family behaviour expert and a child psychologist. With insights given by the experts to the occurrences throughout the week, the experiment shows what kids truly desire and how they finally learn the weight of their parents’ responsibilities. This social experiment also makes the parents realize that they need to change going forward – giving the format big, dramatic and emotional results.
