UKTV and Shine TV ask ‘What Do Kids Know?’

UKTV has commissioned Shine TV to produce a prime time gameshow that examines the communication gap between children and adults by pairing celebrities with children to compete to the finish. Commissioned for UKTV's Watch channel, the 10x30-minute series sees teams compete in a range of games that require imagination, ingenuity and an understanding of how pre-teen and adult minds work as the celebrities work out what the kids are trying to say. The series is due to debut on Watch in early 2010.
