"By combining our award-winning hosts with experts from every field, a peek into the lives of today's biggest celebrities and our own viewers' real-life questions and stories, the show has become the ideal daytime destination for audiences who are looking for advice on how to live their best, everyday lives."

Filming from a full-functional 2,400 square foot Colonial-style home on the Universal Studio Hollywood backlot, "Home & Family" brings viewers inside to deliver segments on the best in cooking, crafting, decorating, fashion, health, beauty, fitness, financial advice, pet care, lawn and garden tips, as well as interviews with celebrity guests revealing their unknown talents or skills and live performances from some of Hollywood's biggest stars. In Season 2, viewers can continue to look forward to seeing fun segments including spring cleaning suggestions, Earth Day art exhibits, July 4th celebrity home barbecues and the spectacular Universal Studios fireworks display. Season 3 will begin airing in October, 2014.
