MGM Television and Tresor adapt Generation Gap for WDR | Offers | News

WDR and Tresor TV recently wrapped production on a four-episode primetime adaptation of the comedy variety series Generation Gap.

Licensed by MGM Television’s Global Formats division, Das ist meine Zeit examines the divide between older and younger generations as they compete in challenges to prove they’re in touch with technology, references pop culture and more. From grandma fumbling with a smartphone to grandson trying to figure out what a fax machine actually does, families come together to share laughs and win prizes and maybe learn a thing or two along the way.

Produced in various territories around the world, including several seasons on Mexican broadcast giant, Televisa, the Generation Gap format continues to expand globally with the launch in Germany. Das ist meine Zeit is set to air on German broadcaster WDR on August 20.

Axel Kuehn, Managing Director of Tresor TV, commented: “We believe Generation Gap is the perfect format for the whole family, entertaining all generations, from the youngest to the oldest. We are delighted to bring this wonderful show to German screens on WDR and look forward to many more projects with Patrice and the entire MGM team in the future.

MGM’s Patrice Choghi added: “Axel, Peter and the entire team at Tresor have produced a great light family show that captures the soul of the Generation Gap format. We are thrilled with the premiere on WDR and look forward to the format’s continued expansion worldwide.
