TLC has announced Take Home Nanny, a new Supernanny-like reality series starring Emma Jenner as she uses a fresh approach to raising fresh children with a large family event looming, will premiere Monday, July 21 at 8PM ET/PT.
Take Home Nanny will follow Jenner as she works with a different family in each episode -- using teaching tools and disciplinary actions specifically tailored for each out-of-control child and each individual outing.
Events Jenner will prepare the children for range from family reunions to school field trips, and she'll have just a few days to have the kids on their best behavior before the big day.
Each Take Home Nanny episode concludes with the family's big event, allowing viewers to see if Jenner's effort was successful.
TLC began developing Take Home Nanny in April as part of a re-branding effort focused on the network's "real-life" content, which included both new and returning programs packaged into nights themed around subject matter geared towards the home viewing audience and advertisers.
Take Home Nanny is produced by Discovery Studios, with Gerry McKean serving as executive producer.
