From a media release:
Award-winning global media production and distribution company marblemedia is thrilled to announce that Just Like Mom and Dad has been officially greenlit by YES TV in Canada and BYUtv in the US for the production of 22 new episodes slated to launch in Fall 2018.
The first 20 episodes of the series still continues to rollout, and since the launch in January 2018 Just Like Mom and Dad has become North America’s new favourite family game show, and is the highest rated family game show in Canada!
Just Like Mom and Dad is a hilarious and fun-filled game show that celebrates and rewards families for how well they know each other. Each episode features three teams of parent-kid pairs that are all trying to accumulate the most points after three rounds of family fun.
New episodes will feature more amusing questions and questionable baking, older kids between 8 and 15, more spectacular prizes and even crazier Bake Off recipes. marblemedia is currently seeking fun, energetic families to compete on new episodes, and interested parent-kid pairs can visit www.JustLikeMomandDad.com to apply.
To accompany the launch of the new block of episodes, the mobile Just Like Mom and Dad game (iOS, Android), created by marblemedia, will also see new updates to build upon its current success. New updates include the introduction of an ‘in-game announcement system’ which alerts players of poignant game and brand information, a new block of challenges and additional prizes for winners.
marblemedia secured all production and distribution rights in an agreement with Bell Media. This multi-year format deal includes worldwide program and format distribution rights to the series, through marblemedia’s distribution arm, Distribution360, along with digital and ancillary rights. In addition, marblemedia has partnered with Segal Licensing, which will be handling licensing and merchandising for the series. marblemedia is also excited to have Baskin Robbins and Dave and Busters as returning partners for the series and is currently in discussions with a number of other brand integration partnerships for participation in the series.
Producers for the series include Mark Bishop, Matt Hornburg, Steve Sloan, Stephen Turnbull, alongside Lorna Dueck for YES TV, Jim Bellfor BYUtv, Randy Lennox and Mike Cosentino for Bell Media, and Adam Ivers for Omnicom’s Highway Entertainment.
