In the series, "Losing It With Jillian," Michaels will invade a different family every week and give them her own characteristic brand of tough love. She will get to the bottom of the issues each family member faces -- ones that affect their health and happiness -- and will arm them with the tools necessary to make life-altering changes.

The series will also feature celebrity chef Curtis Stone who will enhance Michaels' efforts by ridding the family's kitchen of all unhealthy foods and educating them on proper nutrition, healthy ingredients, cooking tips and recipes.

"Losing It With Jillian" is produced by Reveille in association with Empowered Media. Jillian Michaels, Giancarlo Chersich, Mark Koops ("The Biggest Loser," "Breakthrough with Tony Robbins"), Howard T. Owens ("The Biggest Loser," "Breakthrough with Tony Robbins") and Ellen Rakieten ("The Oprah Winfrey Show," NBC's "The Marriage Ref") are the executive producers.
