Frontier House debuts tonight.
PBS’s six-hour, three day reality TV series that follows three families who agreed to live as if it were 1883 debuts tonight. Frontier House is based upon last year’s 1900 House, and it takes place in 1883 Montana, where the three families–which included some small children–lived for five months without any modern conveniences.
