Kid Nation | 2007
Cameras follow 40 kids for 40 days, between the ages of 8-15. They are placed in an abandoned ghost town, and attempt to build a new society from scratch. They must survive with no adult supervision or modern luxuries. Rather than have a weekly elimination, the winner (as voted by their peers) receives a special "reward" at the end of each show. All the participants are free to leave and go home whenever they choose.
