ATLANTA, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UP, the television network dedicated to uplifting viewers every day, announced today the newest addition to its growing prime time lineup -- the former ABC series -- "Supernanny." The network has licensed off-network cable rights to 116 episodes from the show's six seasons in an agreement with the Disney/ABC Television Group. The hit show will premiere on UP in a 'Supernanny's Blow UP Bash' marathon on Independence Day weekend beginning Friday, July 4th and running through Sunday, July 6th before settling into its regular weeknight time slot at 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. EDT, starting Monday, July 7th.
Supernanny is the answer to every stressed parent's dreams. In each one-hour episode, Jo works miracles on desperate parents who are struggling with badly-behaved children by dispensing practical, no-nonsense rules that transform their children's wild ways and brings families back from the brink. The Jo Frost method gives parents the know-how to tackle any problem area, be it mealtime, bathtime, bedtime, bedwetting, homework, sibling rivalry, aggressive behavior, and other challenges that vex parents every day. In an era where parents are bombarded with conflicting or guilt-laden messages at every turn, and sometimes obey their kids' commands rather than the other way around, this is an upbeat, back-to-basics approach to restoring harmony and authority in the home.
With more than 25 years of experience in the family arena, Frost, America's leading parenting expert and former professional nanny, became a global household name with the success of her hit television shows "Supernanny," "Extreme Parental Guidance," and last summer's "Family S.O.S. with Jo Frost." She has proven her ability to calmly rein in unacceptable conduct and bring peace and stability to any home. New York Times bestseller Frost is the author of seven insightful parenting guides and is a huge proponent for early education advocacy. Her newest book Jo Frost's Toddler Rules: Your 5-Step Guide to Shaping Proper Behavior lends invaluable methods to help tame toddler tantrums and curb troublesome behavior -- from mealtime struggles to bedtime battles, and everything in between. She lives in Los Angeles, and travels worldwide speaking to a variety of audiences, in addition to contributing to global family and parenting magazines.
The hit series "Supernanny" aired on ABC for six seasons from 2005 - 2011. Jo Frost stars. Nick Powell created and executive produced both the American and British versions of the show. Nick Emmerson and Stephanie Schwam were also executive producers on the American version. "Supernanny" was a production of Shed Media.
