With a focus to celebrate everyday living and activities, the new show, created and co-executive produced by Faith, will include cooking, gardening, entertainment, home design, beauty and fashion.
“We will bring a little bit of southern charm and inspiration to our viewers, alongside insights from top tastemakers and experts in many areas,” Faith says. “Kellie is very much southern while Ben is everything New York—complete opposites, but together their chemistry is magic and our viewers are going to love them.”
