Bravo picks up 'Thintervention with Jackie Warner' reality series
By Christopher Rocchio, 01/11/2010
Bravo announced that it has picked up Thintervention with Jackie Warner, a new reality series that will feature the fitness expert and former Work Out star helping overweight clients kick their unhealthy habits.
Unlike most other reality weight-loss shows, Thintervention will feature Warner working with clients who are still in their real-life environments and surrounded by the distractions and stresses of their personal and professional lives.
In addition to "grueling" workouts, Thintervention's hour-long episodes will feature therapy sessions intended to help get to the bottom of the clients' weight issues and nutrition lessons that will teach them how to eat healthier.
Bravo had announced it was developing Thintervention -- which is the latest incarnation of Jackie's Gym Takeover, an earlier Warner project it had announced in April -- in October.
Jackie's Gym Takeover was originally envisioned as a Kitchen Nightmares-like reality series that would feature Warner visiting struggling gym owners and using her own gym ownership and entrepreneurial experience to help the owners turn their failing businesses around.
However after developing the project further, Bravo designed to change gears.
