JO FROST, THE ORIGINAL AUTHORITY ON CHILDCARE, COMES TO THE AID OF A NEW GENERATION OF FAMILIES IN THE RETURN OF THE GROUNDBREAKING INTERNATIONAL AWARD-WINNING SERIES "SUPERNANNY" PREMIERING NEW YEAR'S DAY, JANUARY 1 ON LIFETIME
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 7, 2019) Just in time to kickoff 2020, the world's preeminent child-rearing expert, Jo Frost, returns to television for 20 all-new episodes of the beloved parenting series, Supernanny, premiering on Wednesday, January 1 at 10pm ET/PT on Lifetime, following the premiere of Married at First Sight Season 10. Drawing on 30 years of professional experience, Jo is back to help stressed-out parents tackle social and behavioral challenges as well as new issues faced by modern-day families. With a recipe of honest, direct and nurturing support, Jo offers real-life solutions to parents - uplifting families with advice, techniques, and tips to iron out the chaos in their lives, helping families evolve.
"It will always remain a privilege to be educating and helping families evolve, and making a difference," said Jo Frost, Executive Producer and Family Expert on Supernanny. "Thank you Lifetime for bringing this groundbreaking show back to families nationwide at a time in the world when we so desperately need it most," she continued.
The families featured this season are from cities and towns around the country, including Phenix City, AL; Spokane, WA; Makaha, HI; Corona, CA; Mesa, AZ; Cortlandt Manor, NY; Gilbert, AZ; and more. Each of the families are dealing with diverse issues that span the spectrum of parenting challenges - from dealing with postpartum depression, ADHD, kids obsessed with electronic devices, blended families struggling with children acting out, military and first responder spouses facing separations - to parents buried in their phones and more. Jo will visit one new family each week and use her trusted and proven methods and elevated teachings to help them change their dynamics while focusing on positive reinforcement and connectivity.
Supernanny's first stop will be in Pittstown, NJ, where viewers will meet Jessica and CJ Braido and their four children. The couple recently went from double duty to quadruple duty, when their twins Dax and Chase arrived three months ago. The dual career parents were already at odds with opposing parenting styles and relying on devices as digital babysitters. With the tension rising, will Nanny Jo be able to teach Jessica and CJ to work together before chaos pushes them further apart?
Supernanny is produced by Shed Media, a division of Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television, and executive produced by Dan Peirson, Stephanie Schwam and Lisa Christy with John Henshaw as showrunner and Jo Frost executive producer. Cat Rodriguez and Gena McCarthy executive produce for Lifetime.
