Supernanny returns! The ABC show, which was canceled last year after Jo Frost quit, is returning on Lifetime. Jo Frost left Supernanny after six successful seasons to concentrate on her personal life with the hope of starting a family of her own. And now Lifetime, in conjunction with Shed Media US, have launched an open casting call for the new Supernanny; and for the first time ever, they will be searching for an American homegrown Supernanny.
“Shed Media US is thrilled to work with Lifetime on re-launching our successful brand with a fresh, new, American nanny,” said Nick Emmerson, President of Shed Media US. Supernanny is a global series with Supernannies based in Brazil, France, Germany, Israel, Spain, Greece, China, Italy, Singapore, and Indonesia, among other countries. Job requirements for the American Supernanny include
- a tough, but loving philosophy when caring for children
- the ability to determine the roots of highly emotional relationship problems within families in desperate need for help
- background and experience to coach parents and kids with constructive, enlightening, and results-driven criticism
- proof of US residency
- and the ability to travel extensively
Producers emphasize: “No family issue should be too trivial or too intimidating for America’s Supernanny.” Prospective nanny candidates can apply at MyLifetime.com, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 877-626-6984.
What kind of traits would make an ideal American Supernanny? Should he or she be similar to Jo Frost? Do you have what it takes to be America’s next Supernanny? Are you excited that Supernanny is returning?
