"Uva Family" � The Uva boys, Trevor (7) and Travis (4), disrespect authority figures, curse, insult and bully their classmates. They expect their parents to do everything for them. Mom Rosemary owns and operates a pre-school full time, and is too tired by day's end to give her boys the attention and love they desperately need. She craves more help from her husband, John, a stay-at-home dad who is admittedly clueless and detached from his sons. He brings them to Rosemary's pre-school every day because he doesn't know what else to do with them. The boys have gained a reputation for being the worst behaved kids there, and their parents have essentially given up. Jo enters the equation with a master plan for this family to wake up to the reality of their situation. Her ultimate goal is to boost John's pride in his role as stay-at-home dad, teach both parents to step up their discipline measures, and help the family bond and become happier, on "Supernanny," MONDAY, AUGUST 13 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD 9/18/06)

Supernanny Jo Frost catapulted to fame when the U.K. version of "Supernanny" debuted in 2004, and she's considered by many to be a godsend to parents, counting millions of viewers among her fans. In addition, she is a bestselling author -- her paperback book, Supernanny: How to Get the Best from Your Children, rose to No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller List and her other book, Ask Supernanny: What Every Parent Wants to Know, was published by Hyperion Books in September 2006.

On the television program, Jo observes how parents handle their day-to-day obstacles with their children. Once she's assessed the pitfalls, she works with the parents, instilling her tried-and-true methods for transforming unwanted behavior. Then, after demonstrating just how well the new style will work and getting unbelievable results from the children, the parents must fly solo with the Supernanny techniques. For several days they try to implement Jo's suggestions, and she revisits them at the end of the program to help keep them on track for the future. When parents witness Jo's results and -- even better -- achieve them on their own, they are true believers in the Supernanny way. Best of all, children and adults alike can enjoy the lasting benefits of a more harmonious family life.

Nick Powell is the creator and executive producer of both the American and British versions of the show. Craig Armstrong and Nick Emmerson are the executive producers of the American version. "Supernanny" is produced by Ricochet, Ltd.
