THE KID GLOVES ARE OFF. AMERICA'S FAVORITE NANNY RETURNS IN ALL-NEW SERIES

-- FAMILY S.O.S. WITH JO FROST helps fractured families repair their relationships--

(New York, NY) Jo Frost, known around the world as Supernanny, is back on US television in the all-new TLC series FAMILY S.O.S. WITH JO FROST, opening the door to families that are in crisis and need help bringing harmony back to their homes. No longer just helping correct the "naughty toddler" phase, the new series will find Jo sharing her respected advice as she helps families of all sizes and structures. From rebellious teenagers causing conflict to bullying at school to battling parents on the edge of divorce, FAMILY S.O.S. will tackle the hot-button issues that every family faces today.

TLC has ordered six episodes of FAMILY S.O.S. WITH JO FROST, kicking off with a 90-minute premiere followed by five hour-long episodes. The series is scheduled to premiere May 28 at 9/8c.

"Jo Frost is one of the most trusted and compelling experts in helping families and raising children, and FAMILY S.O.S. puts a spotlight on her ability to navigate the most challenging of today's parenting situations, and helping broken families recover from the problems they've been struggling with," said Amy Winter, GM, TLC.

"FAMILY S.O.S." is the next evolutionary step towards educating and helping families heal. I feel very privileged and extremely excited to be back once again providing families across the US this service which is very much needed; working alongside TLC, I know together we can facilitate this vision of doing so," said Jo Frost.

In the premiere episode, Jo arrives at the house of the Quinn-Davises, a blended family with each parent bringing along children from previous relationships - and they are imploding. Daughters Amber and Emily are out of control and refuse to respect their parents and their rules. Son Chad is a recovering addict, and other son Derek is despondent from the tension. Parents Don and Julie are dragged in, each defending their own children, to the point of divorce. Jo arrives to turn this family around - even as problems escalate - with Amber admitted to the hospital with alcohol poisoning and Chad learning some devastating news about a close friend.

Throughout the season, Jo will help other households, including a family of six who are constantly fighting with a hot-tempered father at the center of the conflict; a teenager who is being bullied at school and at home who starts acting out and getting in trouble with the law; and a recently relocated family with parents who have opposite styles of discipline and four rebellious children who are stealing and fighting.

FAMILY S.O.S. WITH JO FROST is produced for TLC by Eyeworks USA.
