VH1 is putting the bond between identical twins to the test with Twinning (working title), a 10-episode hourlong competition reality series set to premiere next summer. The project, created and produced by Lighthearted Entertainment (Dating Naked), will feature 12 sets of twins going through challenges that will test their twin connection. (Reports of the incredible strength of the bond between identical twins include cases of siblings dating the same people, finishing each other’s sentences and feeling each other’s physical pain.) Through the challenges, sets of twins will be eliminated until one pair is named the twinners and walk away with the grand prize of $222,222.22. Lighthearted Entertainment’s Howard Schultz, Rob LaPlante and Jeff Spangler will serve as executive producers.
“Twinning (WT) is a crazy concept, and we are all the way in,” said Susan Levison, EVP Original Programming and Production at VH1. “This will be a competition series like no other, and we love to pique our viewers’ twinterest. Come one, come all for the noisiest house show in years.”
