I Know My Kid's a Star was a short-lived reality entertainment competition where ten child-star wannabes along with their parents competed for a chance to win $50,000 along with a one-year contract with a real-life Hollywood agent.


The parents and their children live together in a house. Week to week, the teams work on various performance-related challenges. The show itself consisted of eight episodes only, with one team sent home at the end of each episode. The parent/child team that wins the final competition is awarded $50,000 and a one-year contract for the child with a Hollywood agent.
