FIVE AMISH YOUNG ADULTS ON THEIR TRADITIONAL JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY MEET THEIR NEW ROOMMATES AND BEGIN TO EXPLORE
LOS ANGELES, ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF "AMISH IN THE CITY,"
A NEW REALITY SERIES, WEDNESDAY, JULY 28 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) ON UPN
"This is My Very First Time on an Escalator" -- Five Amish young adults, who have left their spiritually devout, rural communities to experience cosmopolitan life during their traditional journey of discovery, known as rumspringa, arrive in Los Angeles to meet their six diverse, big city roommates, settle into their new ultra-modern Hollywood Hills home and begin to explore the delights and challenges of modern life, on AMISH IN THE CITY, a new reality series, which premieres with a special two-hour episode, Wednesday, July 28 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN.
In the premiere, the Amish begin to experience unfamiliar technologies, including escalators and airplanes, and new foods, including sushi and avocados. Together, all of the roommates visit scenic Los Angeles destinations, including an emotional first-time visit to the ocean for some of the Amish and a spectacular rooftop view of the downtown skyline.
AMISH IN THE CITY will regularly air on Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
AMISH IN THE CITY chronicles how relationships develop and viewpoints collide in a house shared by young people from very different cultures, while also introducing viewers to the intensely personal Amish coming-of-age experience, called rumspringa (a Pennsylvania Dutch word loosely translated as "running wild"). During this religious rite of passage, young Amish men and women are allowed to leave their homes to explore the outside world until they decide whether or not they want to join the Amish church and be welcomed back into their families or stay in the outside world.
From moments serious and significant to lighter and trivial, cameras catch everything as the Amish journey outside their quiet rural areas and are gradually introduced to both the delights and challenges of modern metropolitan life. At the same time, the Amish kids give their city counterparts insight into their beliefs, values and a lifestyle dedicated to faith, modesty and unadorned means.
The city roommates include a handsome swim teacher, a fashion-forward party girl, a colorful club promoter, a busboy/musician, an inner-city student and a strict vegan. While these six people are surprised to learn they will live with the Amish, the entire group soon share a California adventure, complete with wide-ranging daily activities meant to be fun, unexpected and enlightening for everyone in the house. Some of these excursions include a helicopter trip to a resort island and walking the red carpet at a Hollywood movie premiere.
The executive producers are Jon Kroll ("Amazing Race," "Big Brother"), Steven Cantor ("Devil's Playground," "Family Bonds") and Daniel Laikind ("Devil's Playground," "Family Bonds"). AMISH IN THE CITY is a production of New Line Television in association with Stick Figure Productions.
