Marblemedia to reboot 'Just Like Mom'
Canadian TV game show gets new title, interactive elementMore MIPCOM news
TORONTO -- Indie producer marblemedia has secured all remake and development rights for the 1980s classic Canadian TV game show "Just Like Mom" from the CTV network.
The series reboot will include an interactive game component and the new title "Just Like Mom ... and Dad."
The original Canadian series, which ran on the CTV network for five years to 1985, pitted three mother-child teams against one another to identify which pair knew each other best via a question and answer session and "The Bakeoff Challenge."
Remaking "Just Like Mom" comes as an increasing number of domestic lifestyle and game shows exploit Canadians hunkering down in their homes during the recession.
Toronto-based marblemedia will shop "Just Like Mom ... and Dad" at MIPCOM as it seeks a domestic broadcast slot.
