Based on a U.K. series, the North American version sees celebrities like Schitt’s Creek star Annie Murphy team up with their parents for daring adventures.
Peacock Alley Entertainment has wrapped production on a North American adaptation of U.K. travel series 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy.
Set to debut on the Canadian market as 50 Ways To Kill Your Mum on VisionTV and under the name The Parent Trip on BYUtv in the U.S., the 10-episode, 60-minute format follows celebrities as they take on various thrill-seeking adventures with their parent or child.
Produced by the Toronto-based prodco in partnership with Zoomer Media and BYUtv, the show will premiere on July 15 at 9 p.m. on VisionTV and on BYUtv this September.
50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy from Burning Bright Productions and Brown Bread Films for Sky One previously ran for three seasons and followed Irish radio host and TV personality Baz Ashmawy on various bucket list adventures with his mother Nancy. In 2015, the series picked up the International Emmy for Best Non-Scripted Entertainment. Additionally, the show has also previously been acquired by broadcasters in over 100 territories, according to a press release.
Some of the celebrities set for Peacock Alley’s North American series include: Canadian-born supermodel Coco Rocha and her dad Trevor; Schitt’s Creek‘s Annie Murphy and her mom Deb; Big Time Rush star James Maslow and his father Mike; Academy Award-nominated actor Eric Roberts and his stepson Keaton Simmons; and NHL All-Star MVP John Scott and his mother Marilyn, to name a few.
Peacock Alley president Carrie Mudd is an exec producer on the adaptation, while the company’s head of production Ryan Valentini serves as a producer. Michael Henry, who serves as Peacock Alley’s creative director, also works as a series producer on the project.
Sky’s distribution arm, Sky Vision, handles distribution for both series.
