PBS to air 'Colonial House' followup series to '1900 House' and 'Frontier House'
By Reality TV World staff, 07/29/2002
Zap2It.com reports that following the success of "1900 House" and "Frontier House," PBS will turn its time machine on again next season. The latest installment of what the public broadcaster calls "hands-on history" programming will be "Colonial House." Families will live together in a small settlement just as early English colonists did upon arriving in America in the 17th century.
Production of "Colonial House" is scheduled to begin next year. As in the previous two "House" series, participants will give up their 21st-century lives to live as people did in the past. That means no cars, electricity or plumbing. The families in the settlement will live by a set of laws they will write themselves, after consulting with experts on colonial history.
