[Comments] Aaron Stipkovich speaks on location with Emileen, Andree, and Lou from "Forever Young." The six-episode unscripted series seeks to discover what happens when two different generations ' five "juniors" under the age of 30 and five "seniors" over age 70 ' brave the challenge of living together in the same house.

"Forever Young" chronicles five seniors ' Lou, Emileen, Eugene, Shirley and Arthur ' and five "juniors" ' Mike, Christian, Andree, Sam and Angelina ' as they embark on a journey to try to identify with the other generation. Teaching seniors how to master the techniques of beer pong and explaining to juniors that you can't zoom in on a paper map may be more difficult than originally thought. Will the generation gap prove too big to cross with attitudes like "I can't learn anything from you" flowing freely in the house?

Through tasks that will bond or break them, the housemates will learn to open up and share more of themselves with their counterparts than they ever thought possible. The generations may differ in fashion, technology, lifestyle and etiquette, but they will both learn at least one thing: how to stay "Forever Young."
