Braking Badly documentary to air on Sky One

Sky One has commissioned production company Chocolate Media to produce a new documentary series called ‘Braking Badly’. The programme will follow the experiences of parents as they attempt to teach their teenage children how to drive.

To make the programme more entertaining, the parents will have only one week to tutor their son or daughter before he or she takes a driving test. Of course, the cameras will be following all the action as the drama unfolds.

The eight-part series aims to explore the parent and child relationship in an "intense" setting and will give mums and dads a chance to reconnect with their children by spending a whole week together in what will sometimes be stressful and emotional situations.

Sky One Commissioning Editor, Siobhan Mulholland said: "This will be a fun, warm and endearing insight into family dynamics. Into just what makes those parent/teenager relationships tick - the moments of laughter, tears and frustration."

Sky has not announced when the series will debut on UK screens but it's expected to continue the broadcaster's tradition of airing programmes that celebrate the "joy of family" in the 8pm slot.

Chocolate Media Executive Producer, Alan Brown added: "It is a rite of passage none of us will ever forget - the fear of releasing the clutch for the first time and the exhilaration of the car pulling away. Sharing that moment with one of your parents is both an exciting and excruciating experience."
