The show, "Sex ... With Mom and Dad," is part of Think MTV's sexual-health campaign "It's Your (Sex) Life." In each half-hour episode, Pinsky will help a teen and his or her parents work through their problems discussing sex, dating and relationships.

"Sex," which has received a 20-episode order, debuts at 7 p.m. Sept. 29 and will air as a strip. It's executive produced by Bryan Scott and Lesley Goldman for Picture This Television. The concept was created by Shine Entertainment.
