    ABC Announces "SuperNanny"

    ABC ANNOUNCES A NEW REALITY SERIES, "SUPERNANNY,"
    WHERE AMERICAN FAMILIES BENEFIT FROM THE SERVICES
    OF A MODERN DAY MARY POPPINS


    In the tradition of physical and home makeovers, ABC leads the way with the next step in life enhancement with family behavior makeovers - via a "Supernanny." Production on the eight-episode series will begin immediately, it was announced today by Andrea Wong, ABC's executive vice president of Alternative Series and Specials.

    Based on the hugely successful (Channel 4, UK) British series, "Supernanny" stars Jo Frost, a modern day, tough-love "Mary Poppins" and places her with families in need of guidance or care. Frost, a genuine nanny with more than 15 years experience in the United States and the U.K., has seen it all, from tantrums to potty-training. She will spend an extended period of time with a family, observing their issues and then, using a series of her own tried-and-true methods, offer solutions. Problems can range from disciplinary to sloppiness or anything in between. And while her efforts may concentrate on the children of the household, she also works closely with the parents to establish new rules of behavior and conduct.

    Nick Powell is the creator and executive producer of both the American and British versions of the show. "Supernanny" is produced by Ricochet, Ltd.

    What makes her "Super"? Is she really doing a "Poppins" or more of a Dr. Phil for kids, but British, type of thing?

    I saw an episode of the British version of this, and it was good. The one I saw had a single mother who was being run ragged by her undisciplined kids; the nanny really tried hard to teach her better ways to discipline them. The nanny also was pretty firm with the mother.

    We have our own version in Canada called Real Families on the Life Network. The host is Dr. Michael Weiss. Excellent program!
    I'm very interested to see this one.
