LOS ANGELES - April 22, 2013 - Patricia Ciano has been named Executive Producer of the upcoming daytime strip THE TEST, which will debut in Fall 2013.

THE TEST, a syndicated conflict resolution talk show from Jay McGraw's Stage 29 Productions, is now sold in over 90% of the country, including 49 of the top 50 markets.

Ciano joins McGraw and Carla Pennington as executive producer.

"Patty's broad experience and keen sensibilities make her the perfect choice to join our team," McGraw said. "She brings a vast knowledge of this proven format, and we look forward to working with her as we introduce this unique program to viewers."

Ciano is a veteran daytime producer, who most recently launched and executive produced the syndicated talk show "The Jeremy Kyle Show." She has an extensive resume holding various producing credits on talk shows, including "This Morning With Mike and Juliet," "Life & Style," "The Ricki Lake Show" and "The Jenny Jones Show."

She's been nominated for three Daytime Emmys and has won a Prism Award for an episode of "The Ricki Lake Show."

Hosted by performer Kirk Fox (Parks and Recreation, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), THE TEST is a one-hour conflict resolution talk show that will use lie detector and DNA tests to settle relationship and paternity disputes among the guests. It will be produced by McGraw's Stage 29 Productions, which also produces the Emmy Award-winning daytime talk show THE DOCTORS.
