OVATION SETS ITS DESIGNS ON LISA S. ROBERTS' "MY DESIGN LIFE," PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24

Santa Monica, CA, August 1, 2011 --- Ovation, design expert Lisa S. Roberts and Nancy Glass Productions have collaborated on a new original series, MY DESIGN LIFE, which will premiere on Wednesday, August 24 at 8pm ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes. The series, which consists of ten 30-minute episodes, will air on consecutive Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Ovation, the only network dedicated to arts culture. A special MY DESIGN LIFE marathon featuring all 10 episodes will air on September 21 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

MY DESIGN LIFE follows Roberts and her design team as they visit museum exhibitions, trade shows, retail stores and designers' studios gathering ideas and inspiration for Roberts' upcoming book, DESIGNPOP: POPULAR TRENDS IN CONTEMPORARY PRODUCT DESIGN. Episodes include visits to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the design studios of Harry Allen and Tony Wurman; retail stores such as Design Within Reach and Moss; and restaurants, including David Rockwell's Pod and Christine Liaigre's Buddakan. Viewers will learn about the history behind unique designs where form and function work in harmony and the back stories of the designers and manufactures who created them. Lisa will recommend how to implement these products into one's personal design style.

Highlights from MY DESIGN LIFE include:

EPISODE ONE - Premiering Wednesday, August 24 at 8:00pm ET/PT --- Lisa and her team visit the NY International Gift Fair and discover a new garlic crusher, a piggy bank cast from a real piglet, Kaktus and balloon stools, the hands-on salad bowl, and a biodegradable umbrella called the Brelli, which they test out at The City University of New York.

EPISODE TWO - Premiering Wednesday, August 24 at 8:30pm ET/PT --- This episode features designer Karim Rashid, who gives Lisa an exclusive tour of his home; preparation for a party Lisa is hosting in Philadelphia; and a controversial photo shoot for the book, including a Garbo can and a provocative female model.

Highlights from upcoming episodes include a visit to CerealArt, designing your own shoes, the Snotty Vase, a visit to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, a hunt through New York City for condoms relating to the NYC Condom Campaign, and a segment featuring design products from Michael Graves and Debra Alder for Target.

"Lisa has a knack for sniffing out the most interesting, beautiful and practical designs," said, Kris Slava, SVP, Programming, Ovation. "With her design crew always on the ready to discover the next great product, they share the art of the 'find' with us all."

"Ovation is the perfect network for MY DESIGN LIFE. They have quality programming in the visual and performing arts, and combine information with entertainment. Most importantly, we share the same goal: to make art and design accessible to people in their daily lives. If more people understand why something is well designed, their 'design IQ" will be elevated and they will seek out and demand better design," said Roberts.

"Nancy Glass Productions is excited to team up with Lisa Roberts, one of the most knowledgeable and relatable design experts we have ever worked with," said Sara Baxter of Nancy Glass Productions.

MY DESIGN LIFE is produced by Nancy Glass Productions. Nancy Glass, Sara Baxter and Lisa S. Roberts are Executive Producers.
