Re: Kid's Nation
I also question the sanity of this project, but also wonder how real it will be. Chances they will only show an hour or so ever week - not non-stop filming like on big brother - thus there is every liklyhood that it would be persuado reality tv. This is already happening - apparently the reality documentory of victoria beckhams move to ameria was filled with actors to make reality more interesting.
Still you can tell where the idea came from - tw ospurces that I can think of are 'The Tribe' - tv show - and 'Lord of the Flies'.
