NBC signed ‘Biggest Loser’ trainer Jillian Michaels for her own show, the network announced Tuesday.
Although Jillian isn’t going anywhere on The Biggest Loser, Michaels will also star on “Losing It With Jillian,” an eight-episode series slated for 2010. On the show, the famous physical trainer will travel the country, living with families for a week and examining the family’s life choices that caused them to be unhealthy.
Michaels said, “When your health is out of balance everything else suffers — finances, relationships, work and family dynamics. I’m moving in with families across the country, getting down and dirty and rooting out bad habits in every corner of their lives that are preventing them from health and happiness.”
Also on the show is celebrity chef Curtis Stone, who will be helping Jillians give families new options to start living a healthy life.
Executive producer Ellen Rakieten said, “I love the idea of Jillian crisscrossing America to actually move in with unhealthy families in desperate need of her tough love wake-up call. It’s the knock on your door that could save your life.”
Michaels talked to People and encouraged families to “go to NBC.com/casting and get my bed ready, America, ’cause I’m heading out and you never know, I might just end up on your doorstep, so watch out!”
