Generations Project Ends Series

First Who Do You Think You Are was cancelled by NBC, now BYUtv's The Generations Project is ending its run at 38 episodes. On Tuesday the program announced on their Facebook page that the series had completed its final season earlier this year, thanking fans for their support. The program was unique in featuring non-celebrities as they explored their family history to help learn or overcome a current issue.

Season three adopted a shorter format from the first two seasons featuring interviews mixed with video of the guests' "search for their Why". The episodes will remain on BYUtv's website and iPad app (at least for some time). It's another loss for family history tv this season. The concept was good, and hopefully this type of programming won't be completely lost among the hundreds of channels out there.

  1. Thanks for the update on the show's end. I hadn't heard yet, although I have to say I lost interest in the show since they changed the format this past year.
