Viacom International Media Networks-owned youth net MTV UK has greenlit a local version of the U.S. reality show, Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant, a spin-off of the Teen Mom franchise.

Produced by Teen Mom UK producers True North Productions, Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant UK will document key moments in the lives of four young women across the UK as they near motherhood. The 60-minute observational docuseries will include video diaries and interviews from the young mothers-t0-be that allow them to narrate their own stories.

Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant UK has been co-commissioned by Kelly Bradshaw, VP and brand lead at MTV UK, and Antony Rochford, director of programming for MTV UK; and will be executive produced by Emma Clarke for MTV UK and Fiona O’Sullivan for True North.

Teen Mom UK is now in its fourth season and, according to an MTV UK release, is one of the top three titles on the network, along with Geordie Shore and Ex on the Beach.

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,” said Bradshaw in a statement. “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.”
