UKTV’s entertainment channel Watch has exclusively acquired the U.S. and Australian versions of World’s Strictest Parents US (38 x 60′) and World’s Strictest Parents Australia (14 x 60′). The two new acquisitions will complement the British version, which was recently acquired to broadcast after the BBC. The acquisitions were purchased from Outright Distribution. The format takes rebellious teens out of their homes and puts them into another home with much stricter adults. Watch will premiere the U.S. series this September.
