Overview[edit]

The show featured Drew Pinsky and a panel of experts including celebrities and doctors, helping ordinary people who are dealing with conflicts in their lives, which could include relationship or addiction issues.[1]

Development[edit]

It was announced in April 2011 that The CW had ordered Lifechangers to series.[2] The show aired on weekdays at 3:00 ET/2:00 CT on The CW stations as part of The CW Daytime block, replacing The Tyra Banks Show repeats which aired during the 2010–2011 television season.[3] An original episode aired in the first half-hour and an encore telecast in the second one. It was announced on August 4, 2011 that Maria Menounos will have on-air duties on the show.[4]

Production[edit]

Lifechangers was produced by Warner Bros.' Telepictures Productions. Drew Pinsky served as executive producer alongside Lisa Gregorisch-Dempsey, who also created the series, and Howard Lapides. It was announced in March[when?] that former The Tyra Banks Show producer Rachel Miskowiec will co-produce.[5]

The program stopped airing new episodes in May and was replaced on September 17, 2012 by Tribune Broadcasting/ITV Studios's The Bill Cunningham Show.[6]
