"Forever Young" (TV Land show) is a reality series that teams septuagenarians with twenty-somethings in a unique social experiment. The series is from the same executive producers, including Ashton Kutcher, who previously teamed on "Beauty and the Geek." They are known for creating series that challenge society's preconceptions about beauty, image and what people ultimately can achieve. Now, the reality competition "Forever Young" takes on ageism as it explores the generations' ideas and misconceptions about each other.

Part reality show, part social experiment, the series bridges the generation gap as "Juniors" and "Seniors" work together to experience each other's point of view and find out just how much they do — or don't — have in common. When separated by five decades, six wars and 10 presidents, "Forever Young" explores how revealing and how funny it can be when youth and wisdom join forces, whether in appreciation of the past, understanding the present or preparing for the future.

The series chronicles five seniors over age 70 — Lou, Emileen, Eugene, Shirley and Arthur — and five "juniors" under the age of 30 — Mike, Christian, Andree, Sam and Angelina — as they embark on a journey to try to identify with the other generation. Teaching seniors how to master the techniques of beer pong and explaining to juniors that you can't zoom in on a paper map may be more difficult than originally thought. Will the generation gap prove too big to cross with attitudes like "I can't learn anything from you" flowing freely in the house?

Through tasks that will bond or break them, the housemates will learn to open up and share more of themselves with their counterparts than they ever thought possible. The generations may differ in fashion, technology, lifestyle and etiquette, but they will both learn at least one thing: how to stay "Forever Young."

Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher serve as executive producers for Katalyst. JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are executive producers for 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks US. Eliot Goldberg and Marco Bresaz serve as executive producers for TV Land.
