Extending the Teen Mom franchise, MTV UK has commissioned a local version of the reality hit Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant.
To be produced by True North, makers of Teen Mom UK, the show will take an earlier glimpse at parenthood than its counterpart, documenting the added complexities pregnancy can bring to young adult life. The 1-hour observational docuseries will spotlight key moments in the lives of four young women from across the U.K. as they approach motherhood. The show will feature a combination of video diaries and interviews as well.
Kelly Bradshaw, VP and brand lead for MTV UK, said: “Teen Mom UK lifts the lid on the reality of life as a teenage mother and with Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant UK we’ll meet young mums at the start of their life-changing journeys to parenthood. From their changing bodies to their changing emotions, viewers will get a candid insight into the lives of these young adults as they prepare to become mothers.”
Fiona O’Sullivan, executive producer for True North, added: “We are delighted to be commissioned to make Young & Pregnant for MTV. We know that there are incredible inspirational young people in the U.K. facing up to the biggest challenge of their lives, in becoming parents when they themselves have only just become adults. We are proud to be able to help them share their stories with MTV and the nation.”
