After an extensive search and massive casting call, Lifetime has announced that childcare expert Deborah Tillman has been cast as the toddler wrangler/tantrum tamer of their new reality show, debuting in late November. As “America’s Supernanny,” Tillman will visit the homes of parents in need of guidance and assistance on how to best raise their children.
“I feel blessed and privileged that I have been chosen to do exactly what I was put on earth to do,” Tillman said in a statement, “and that is to help children and families come together, get it together and stay together.”
Tillman is a former accountant and the mother of one, who left her numbers gig in 1992 and now owns multiple learning centers in her home state of Virginia.
“Her passion for helping families is incredible,” executive producer Nick Emmerson said in a statement. “Deborah’s life story is truly inspiring. As ‘America’s Supernanny,’ she is going to take on whatever parenting problems come her way.”
The eight one-hour episodes of “America’s Supernanny” begin airing on Tuesday, November 29 at 9/8c on Lifetime.
