CBS reveals the identities of 'Kid Nation's 40 young pioneers
By Christopher Rocchio, 08/15/2007
CBS has announced the identities of the 40 young pioneers participating in Kid Nation, a new reality series that will chronicle their attempts to "establish a fully-functioning community" in an "uninhabited ghost town" over the course of 40 days.
Kid Nation was filmed earlier this year in the remains of Bonanza City, NM. After arriving in the town, the children -- who range in age from 8- to 15-years-old and didn't have the benefit of modern comforts or adult direction -- spent 40 days attempting to cook their own meals; clean their own outhouses; carry their own water; and even oversee their own businesses in an effort to establish their own "sustainable society."
Each Kid Nation episode will conclude with the children gathering for a Town Hall-style meeting that provided them the opportunity to debate and discuss the community's issues in an adult-like manner. In addition, the kids will also have the task of deciding which of their peers deserves the $20,000 Gold Star, which is awarded at each meeting. Kid Nation won't feature any eliminations and the childen were free to leave whenever they wanted to.
