    MONTREAL, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - In one of Canada's most ambitious reality series
for kids to date, eighteen contestants - aged 12-14 - race across North
America in a heart-pounding, skill-based competition that allows kids to clock
into the real world. Hosted by Canadian comedian Sabrina Jalees, in each
episode contestants must avoid elimination by competing in a series of
thrilling job-related challenges in professions that range from NASCAR racers
to Hollywood stunt people. It is a fierce race to the finish with only one
challenger winning the ultimate prize: college tuition money and an
all-expense paid family vacation. "In Real Life" (13 x 60') airs Wednesdays at
7 p.m. ET/PT beginning Feb. 4 on YTV. A YTV original production, the series is
produced by Montreal-based Apartment 11 Productions.
