The series has recently gone into production in the U.S., but will air exclusively on MTV’s international channels, excluding the U.S. The docuseries will aim to capture the drama, emotions and the potential strains on the young relationships that occur when parents get involved.

Sleeping With The Family will be exec produced by Andrea Speziale-Bagliacca and Ilya Colak-Antic for MTV and Thomas Benski and Misbah Alvi at Pulse.

“With a compelling blend of drama, humor and heart, Sleeping With the Family is a perfect vehicle to explore one of the great dilemmas facing the financially challenged millennial generation – how to carry on a successful relationship while being forced to carry on living under your parents’ roof,” said Kerry Taylor, senior VP and general manager for youth and music at Viacom International Media Networks.
