(19 x ½-hour episodes)
Produced by Frantic Films and based on the successful UK series, Meet the Parents, each episode of the comedy features one giant prank perpetrated by one half of a new couple on the unsuspecting other. Can a new love interest last an entire evening when he or she has to ‘Meet the Family’?
Meet the Family turns a normally mundane encounter into an excruciating test of resolve and commitment as the new love interest becomes an unwitting participant in a totally fake and entirely outrageous family gathering. Unaware that they’ve been set-up by their partner, they meet the fake family whose task it is to make their encounter as uncomfortable as possible, as multiple hidden cameras record their every move. If the new partner sticks around for long enough, the couple will be rewarded with a vacation together.
