"Old People’s Home for Teenagers"
ABC's hit format "Old People’s Home" returns to Australia, but this time with the participation of teenagers. After the success of "Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds", ABC TV and ABC iview will premiere "Old People’s Home for Teenagers", (5x1hr) on Tuesday 30 August.
The intergenerational program is an Endemol Shine Australia Pty Ltd production in association with ABC, narrated by Annabel Crabb, where audiences can see the transformation of the lives of the most vulnerable young Australians – teenagers.
"Old People’s Home for Teenagers" is the first intergenerational program of its kind, and over five weeks audiences will see if spending time with the older adults gives the teens resilience, confidence and creates a rite of passage into adulthood.
Emmy and AACTA award-winning "Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds" is a format created by CPL Productions and distributed worldwide by Red Arrow Studios International.
The program has proved categorically that intergenerational care could improve the health and happiness of older Australians. Seasons 1 and 2 are available ABC iview.
