(19 x ½-hour episodes)
Based on the successful UK series Meet the Parents, each episode of Meet the Family features a series of hilarious pranks perpetrated by actors portraying the family of one half of a new couple on the other. This comedy series turns a normally mundane encounter with future would-be in-laws 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 insane and uncomfortable as possible, as hidden cameras throughout the house record their every move. If the new partner sticks around for long enough, the couple will be rewarded with a free holiday together.
