At one of the most challenging economic times in U.S. history, Lifetime Television brings relief to families who have struggled with unemployment with its new unscripted series, “The Fairy Jobmother,” featuring international career specialist Hayley Taylor. Based on the popular British format and produced by Studio Lambert (“Undercover Boss”), “The Fairy Jobmother” will follow Taylor each week as she assists severely job-challenged families with her no-nonsense and tough-love tactics to motivate them to get back on the payroll. Lifetime will offer a sneak peek of the first of eight one-hour episodes at 11 pm (et/pt) on Thursday, October 28, immediately following the “Project Runway” Season 8 finale. Beginning Thursday, November 4, “The Fairy Jobmother” will air in its regular time period of 9 pm (et/pt).

Using her no-holds-barred approach, Taylor will help families by confronting the unspoken truths responsible for placing them in their current situations. Closely assessing every area of each family’s life — from relationship breakdowns to how they present themselves publicly and the homes they keep — Taylor will assist them in facing the harsh realities of why they are unemployed and get them on the road to financial and emotional recovery. By the end of each episode, she transforms their lives — not only with the opportunity of employment on the horizon, but with a different attitude toward themselves and their family members.

“This innovative series will help American families in need of assistance by motivating them to get back on track in an entertaining, constructive and effective way,” said Nancy Dubuc, President and General Manager of Lifetime Networks and HISTORY. “‘The Fairy Jobmother’ uniquely complements Lifetime’s unscripted strategy and will further strengthen our success among women Thursday evenings.”

Stephen Lambert (creator of “Undercover Boss” and “Wife Swap”) and Eli Holzman (“Project Runway”) serve as executive producers of “The Fairy Jobmother.” Shannon Keenan Demers (“Big Brother”) is executive producer and showrunner.
