Lifetime's America's Supernanny has found its host.

The eight-episode unscripted series, set to premiere Nov. 29 at 9 p.m., has tapped Deborah Tillman, a Virginia-based wife, mother and author who has nearly 20 years of experience working with young children.

Tillman was chosen from a field of more than 400 candidates, Lifetime notes. She wrote the book, Stepping Out on Faith.

“As soon as we saw Deborah, we knew we had found America’s Supernanny,” said Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming at Lifetime Networks. “She a fresh and original voice, and brings a completely new style and attitude to the franchise. She was by far the best candidate for this important job. We can’t wait to introduce her to America.”

On the upcoming series, she will visit homes throughout the country helping parents looking for assistance on how to raise their children.

Shed Media US is behind the hourlong series. Sharenow, Nick Emmerson, Stephanie Schwam, Gena McCarthy, Abigail Harvey and Jim Rapsas will executive produce.
