SAO PAULO, Brazil (Sept. 4, 2012) Sony Pictures Television (SPT) today announced its joint venture production company, Floresta, will produce a local version of Turn Back Your Body Clock for Brazilian audiences.

 Turn Back Your Body Clock follows unhealthy contestants as they take a shocking death-age test to determine their current life expectancy.  Through a series of tests and evaluations, contestants learn how their internal organs are faring under the strain of their unhealthy lifestyle. The results are then used to deliver the shocking verdict their anticipated age of death. During the series, contestants are put on a strict diet and exercise regimen designed to roll back the years and reverse the damage but can they stick to it? After eight weeks, a medical expert performs the tests again to reveal a new, and hopefully improved, life expectancy.
