WESTPORT, Conn. -- "Life On Mar's: The Home Makeover Show," a lifestyle show hosted by Westport resident Mar Jennings, will debut on Sunday, April 19, on WTNH-TV.

The show airs at 1 p.m. and will be a nine-part series. It is a fun, fast-paced new series that highlights the top-to-bottom, inside-and-out, yearlong renovation and restoration of a family home that is chock-full of potential.

Each episode shows how Jennings uses his six unique Casual Luxury design principles to create captivating new spaces. Much more than a decorating show, this series captures everything from demolition and construction to design and decor.

It includes plenty of behind-the-scenes secrets and helpful "sMARt" Tips — advice from Jennings on how viewers can apply what they see on the show in their own home. Jennings said his Casual Luxury design philosophy is "the cure for all design dilemmas.”

Jennings' unique ability to combine home and garden design makes him unique in the television arena — both as an on-camera personality and real-world, hands-on designer. He is the well-known TV host and best-selling author of "Life On Mar's: A Four Season Garden and Life On Mar's: Creating Casual Luxury."

He is a regular contributor as a lifestyle expert for numerous television programs, networks and magazines, reaching both national and local audiences.

The home is being renovated by Tiefenthaler, a local family business with a staff of project mangers, carpenters, and millworkers. The company was hand-selected by Jennings. The series is packed with other Fairfield County resources, such as upholsterers, tile manufacturers and artisans.

Twin Bridge Media will be responsible for the television distribution of the show after its ABC debut. Twin Bridge Media’s president Andy Weir praises Jennings as a pioneer in the Northeast (since most design shows hail from the West Coast and Canada) as not only a lifestyle expert/designer but as a local Realtor for the Higgins Group/Christie’s.

“Mar Jennings offers a one-of-a-kind home makeover series that breaks the mold in entertainment. As a producer, host, designer and high-end Realtor, Mar’s unique talents make him an authority in the field. And with many successful HGTV guest spots and national notoriety to his credit, it’s time the world discovers what Life on Mar’s is truly all about,'' Weir said.

Viewers can tune in on the first episode to meet the O'Kane family and their historic 1908 home named Green Isle. In this episode, viewers will witness the complete before and after transformation of a renovation-ready family room and unused basement space into a new media room with bonus kitchenette and full bathroom.
