MARTINEZ, Ga.---A local kid is on a new CBS show called Kid Nation. 12-year-old Hunter Jeffers is from Martinez.
The new show features 40 gifted kids ages 8 to 15 from all over the US. They will be working together to rebuild Bonanza City, New Mexico without help from any parents.
The children will do everything from organizing a government to opening and running shops to doing their own dishes.
"It's very interesting the concept that I was put in. Modern day pioneer- I think that's just great. I learned how they tried to recreate that like using some of the old tools and equipment and using some of the houses they lived in..it think it's all pretty neat."
