UK pubcaster Channel 4 (C4) has ordered Secret Eaters, a series about the science and psychology of eating from Endemol-owned prodco Remarkable Television, to air in April.

Presented by Anna Richardson, the 6 x 60-minutes series will look at the eating habits of overweight families by putting them under 24-hour camera surveillance.

“There will be cameras in their shopping trolley, the local cafĂ©, their car, fridge, cupboards and sofa,” according to the network’s billing, which adds that “each household has agreed to have every move and mouthful captured.”

The families’ diets will then be analyzed by two experts who will explain why bodies can crave the kind of foods that aren’t good for us. The families then embark on a 12-week “Food Rehab” regime to help them lose weight.

“By showing one family the difference between what they think they eat and what they actually eat, we’ll help them admit their secret eating ways and put them on the path to a more balanced and honest diet,” said C4′s deputy head of features Andrew Jackson, who commissioned the series.

Secret Eaters is executive produced by Remarkable Television’s Kitty Walshe.
