ABC Greenlights 'Bet On Your Baby' Game Show

Eight episodes of Melissa Peterman-hosted series to premiere in April 1/30/2013 10:00:00 AM Eastern

ABC has ordered eight episodes of a new primetime game show Bet
On Your Baby
, in which parents try to predict their toddler's next move to
earn $50,000 in prize money for their college fund.

The hour-long series, produced by Electus and 5x5 Media,
will be hosted by actress/comedienne Melissa Peterman and premiere in April on
ABC.

Each episode will feature five families with toddlers between
the ages of two and three-and-a-half years old, with each competing in
individual challenges, not against each other.

Electus International will distribute the series
universally.
