For two whole weeks, couples swap partners to see what life is like living with a complete stranger who seems to have all the qualities these individuals think they are missing in their current relationships.

With wedding plans well in the works, couples, and their futures are on the line. Which couple’s love will be enough to outweigh the opposition? Which will crack under the pressure? Whose family and friends will show up? And of those that do, will they voice their disapproval or forever hold their peace?

The Pop Game

Being a star means more than having a hit song. The Pop Game is a Top 40 music mentoring/competition format among kids aged 12-16. These aspiring young artists have exceptional talent and family members who are managing their attempts to be successful in the industry. They are mentored and judged by a top music industry executive and a core team of expert advisers in all the skills needed for a complete Pop-Star package. They are rigorously assessed in each facet of what it takes to be a Pop Superstar, including vocal talent, style, presence, leadership, dance and commanding a stage. The process is designed to spot, train, and correct flaws. The winner receives a recording contract with the industry executive. But it is such an exceptional one of a kind ‘master class’ for all the kids who participate, that there are no losers, regardless of who gets a contract.

Stove Tots gives viewers a first-hand look at the cutthroat world of junior culinary competitions. We are following the next generation of culinary masters – maestros of the kitchen, who had better finish their homework and do their chores before they go near the stove. Each year, there are over 200 junior cooking competitions in the US, and Stove Tots will focus on the up-and-coming young chefs, as well as their devoted and supportive (sometimes too supportive) parents, as they cut their teeth in these high stakes cook-offs. Each week we follow a new group of culinary wunderkinds as they prepare recipes, search for inspiration and deal with the pressures of competition as they prepare for the culinary fight of their lives.
