home-and-family-premiere-hallmarkHallmark  Channel  announces  a  groundbreaking  new  Original  Daytime  Series,  “Home  & Family,”  will  launch  in  Q4  as  part  of  the  network’s  robust  Lifestyle  block.  “Home  &  Family”  is 220  original  two-hour  shows  over  44  weeks  from  award-winning  production  company  Woody Fraser Productions (“Good Morning America,” “Nightline,” “The Dick Cavett Show”). The hosted series is the ultimate destination for innovative home ideas and improvements, as well as, being the  place  for  the  latest  information,  trends  and  products  for  everyone  in  the  home.  Hosts  for the new daytime talker will be announced shortly.
“Home & Family” originates from a Midwestern-style 2800 square foot, fully-functioning
house on the Universal Studios lot. Show segments take place throughout the Hallmark Channel home,  and  everyone  is  invited  in.  The  home  features  a  fully  furnished  kitchen,  living  area, formal  dining  and  casual  family  rooms.  Informative segments  on  today’s  popular  tech  gadgets will  take  place  in  the  home’s  office,  automotive  segments  in  the  working  garage,  and landscaping  and  gardening  segments  will  be  presented  from  the  home’s  backyard.  As  part  of the Universal Studios tour, trams will deliver audiences daily for specific portions of the program –  games,  animals,  parties,  musical  performances,  celebrity  and  host  “Meet  &  Greets”  –  and performers will entertain audiences from a specially constructed stage that overlooks the famed
Psycho  House  at  Universal.  The  “Home  &  Family”  home  is  equipped  with  two-way  video screens, computers and Skype which bring America alive.
“Home & Family” is a show that deals in answers. Each day, the show’s hosts interact in
roundtable  discussions  with  experts  from  every  field.  High  profile  celebrities  will  join  in  some discussions and auditions will soon be held for real people to become part of the show. Week to  week,  “Home  &  Family”  follows  America  –  from  expecting  moms’  journeys  to  weight  loss successes – engaging the audience in stories that matter.
“Morning  shows,  nightly  news  series,  reality  programs,  and  great  American  talk  shows are the heart of Woody Fraser Productions’ remarkable contributions to television,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.
“Home  &  Family’  is  a  high-energy  experience  that  blends  brand  attributes  consumers love  about  Hallmark’s  celebration  of  special  occasions  with  equal  parts  entertainment, information and unique surprises,” Ms. Vicary concluded.

“Home & Family” is created by Woody Fraser. Steve Leon is Executive Producer.
