fourth UK Big Brother begins tonight; teenage Big Brother planned.
The UK’s fourth Big Brother series begins tonight. Although the show is eliminating the rich and poor divisions, the new house includes “a secret pub” that “bosses hope … will spark more drunken antics,” according to Ananova. Channel 4 and Endemol are currently planning a teenage version of the show that will air sometime in the next year. The Independent reports that “the teenage show would be educational,” quoting a Channel 4 exec who says it could focus on “personal health, body awareness, and … issues around growing up, such as drugs, first jobs, leaving home for the first time.”
+ also: Not Very Big Brother parody, featuring toy contestants and a cardboard house, will begin webcasting tonight and air for seven weeks.
