All parents think they know their baby well, but are they willing to bet on it? "Bet On Your Baby" will reveal the answer to that question each week in an hour-long program featuring memorable families with toddlers between the ages of two to three-and-a-half years old, who will play to see how well they can guess their child's next move in the hopes of earning money towards their college fund.
On "Bet on Your Baby," the parents will be playing the game and the children will just be playing. The game takes place on two stages - on one, a shiny game show studio with a cheering audience, one parent places a bet, while on the other, the parent takes the child to a play room called "The Babydome" where the child determines the outcome of the game completely unaware of the stakes that are on the line. Each family plays a self-contained, individual challenge against the house -- meaning that they're only competing against themselves, not against other families.
Later on, the five families return to play for the chance to advance to the final round - "Smash for Cash" - in which one set of parents will have 5 tries to hammer open piggy banks, one of which contains a $50,000 college fund.
"Bet on Your Baby" was created by 5x5 Media's Craig Armstrong, Rick Ringbakk, Charles Wachter and Electus' Ben Silverman and Jimmy Fox. The series is executive-produced by Electus (Ben Silverman, Chris Grant, Jimmy Fox) and 5x5 Media (Craig Armstrong and Rick Ringbakk).
