Culkin’s new show comes as a result of a viral tweet he sent out in 2020. The Richie Rich star reminded everyone that they are old by saying that he had turned 40. It got half a million retweets since then and over 70,000 replies, and kicked off the show. In the show, we see Mack embark on a wild and intrepid journey to find out what turning 40 truly means. He will ask questions that anyone who deals with ageing wants to know.

Some of these questions are: How should we embrace getting older in a society obsessed with youth? What is midlife crisis and how do we measure it? Then finally, how do we ensure unbridled passion doesn’t become a relic of our youth?
