A French television network, France 5, is creating a reality show in search of a higher mission: peace in the Middle East.
For three weeks, 12 Israeli and Palestinian teens, age 18, will be charged with co-existing and living under one roof.
A mentor will help facilitate the discussions and negotiations between the young Arabs and Jews, who will be socializing for the first time.

Filming begins in September.
