Six teens get the up-close and personal reality check of a lifetime on ‘Next Generation”, the highly anticipated factual entertainment series set to launch on VTM in Belgium this evening.


The teens, all offspring of well-known celebrities, are taken on a life-changing camping trip that takes

 them right out of their comfort zone and into the real world. On every episode, the host brings the six

kids into contact with other teens less fortunate than they are, from teens with physical limitations to psychiatric patients.


The unique coming-of-age format is from Lecter Media, the creators behind ‘Greetings From 19xx’, currently in production for new series in Belgium, the Netherlands and Sweden after previous successful series in those countries.


Be-Entertainment MD Gepke Nederlof, who’ll introduce the format at MIPCOM 2018, notes: “This is a 

a well thought out program like we’ve seen with ‘Greetings From 19xx’, using strong elements we all

know work. The format offers insights into the lives of the celebrities and their kids, combined with very powerful stories delivered with a light touch. ‘Next Generation’ is an important addition to the MIPCOM 2018 lineup, adding even more meaningful reality to our diverse catalogue.”
