BRAVO ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF "THINTERVENTION WITH JACKIE WARNER," A NEW DOCU-SERIES FEATURING THE RENOWNED FITNESS EXPERT
NEW YORK - October 14, 2009 - Bravo is currently in development on "Thintervention with Jackie Warner," an emotional new docu-series inspired by renowned fitness expert Jackie Warner's life mission to change lives through healthy habits. The announcement was made by Frances Berwick, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Bravo Media.
During three seasons of the hit Bravo series "Work Out," viewers were introduced to Warner's passion for fitness and nutrition, following her ups and downs as she ran her high-end Los Angeles gym, Sky Sport & Spa, and wrangled her rambunctious staff of trainers. In "Thintervention," fans will get an even closer look at what Jackie does best - kick butt and inspire drastic lifestyle changes for her overweight clients who are struggling to lose weight and get healthy for good.
"Thintervention" will track the stories of people struggling with ongoing weight issues. Warner does not send them to a weight loss camp or facility, instead she works with them in their real lives surrounded by the every day distractions and stresses of family and work. It will make the experience even more challenging, but ultimately more gratifying in that the chances for long term success for her clients are greater. In typical Warner boot camp style, she will accept nothing less than full commitment for change and will confront those that do not show her they are sincere with their fitness goals. Each episode of the one hour series will feature a grueling workout with Warner pushing her clients to their emotional and physical limits, a therapy session to get to the root of their weight issues, and a life lesson in nutrition such as grocery shopping or surprise raids of their home kitchens. Throughout the course of the series, viewers will follow the stories of these individuals, and in the end will see who survived Jackie's "Thintervention."
"Thintervention with Jackie Warner" is produced by Shed Media U.S. for Bravo. Jennifer O'Connell, Jackie Warner and Nick Emmerson serve as executive producers.
