After an exhaustive search and numerous casting calls throughout the United States, childcare specialist Deborah Tillman has been named host of Lifetime's all-new unscripted series America's Supernanny. The Virginia-based wife, mother and author boasts more than 19 years experience in early childhood education, working with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and elementary school students. Chosen among a pool of over 400 candidates to find an American homegrown nanny for the program, Tillman, who owns several children learning centers in the Old Dominion state, wowed producers with her charisma, firm but loving philosophy to caring for children and natural ability to connect and work with families experiencing relationship problems.
As America’s Supernanny, Tillman will visit the homes of parents throughout the U.S. seeking guidance and assistance on how to best raise their children. Diving straight into the chaos and heart of the matter in the all-new program, she will give viewers an all-access look at troubled households by closely observing each family dynamic to pinpoint their complicated problems – ranging from extremely intense tantrums and constant timeouts to bad habits and misguided parenting – and follow through to resolve their issues to put families on the road to happiness.
