Charlotte, NC (PressExposure) June 24, 2008 -- Sofas, chairs, coffee tables and other furniture provided by ClubFurniture.com of Charlotte will âstarâ in a new reality TV show premiering Wednesday, June 25, at 9 p.m. on NBC, called âThe Baby Borrowers.
The highly entertaining show reveals what happens to five teen-age couples as they take care of someone elseâs baby, then toddlers, pre-teens, teen-agers and finally aging seniors. âI had no idea this is what it tookâ is a comment heard frequently in various forms from the struggling teen âparents.â Like the hugely popular âAmerican Idol,â the basic format for the program started on TV in the UK, where it drew large audiences.
NBC describes âThe Baby Borrowersâ as âa unique social experiment that takes five teen-age couples on a rollercoaster ride of adult responsibility, allowing them to experience parenting firsthand. Desperate to have their own life and family, our lovebirds are thrown in at the deep end. Theyâre given real houses and real responsibilities, the most important of which is to look after children from a range of age groups. . . . In the end, will these couples be able to cope with the pressures of parenthood or will they break?
The five couples will âliveâ in five new homes in a cul de sac in Eagle, Idaho. Producers of the show contacted Charlotteâs ClubFurniture.com because of their track record providing quality furniture for other TV shows including NBCâs âThe Apprentice,â Fine Living TV, TLC TV and other programs.
