Simon Cowell is launching a new TV show 'Keep It In The Family' inspired by Sir Bruce Forsyth's 'Generation Game'
Simon Cowell is launching a TV show inspired by Sir Bruce Forsyth's 'Generation Game'.
The 54-year-old music mogul - who was catapulted to the spotlight with the success of hit reality show 'X Factor' where he sits on the judges panel - is working on a new show titled 'Keep It In The Family' which will feature three generations of families battling it out to win a prize.
Although it is based on 'Generation Game' which was hosted by Bruce between 1971-1994 and had four teams of two people from the same family but different generations compete, Simon's show has a "fresh feel".
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "It's very family-focused like the Generation Game, but has a fresh feel."
'Keep It In The Family' will be hosted by former 'Coronation Street' star Bradley Walsh.
The show begins filming next month with hopes for it to air later this year.
In 2011 Simon created his first game show 'Red or Black?' which was hosted by Ant & Dec on ITV.
