Martha Stewart to Perform ‘Lifestyle Makeovers’ on New Reality Show


After shopping an Alaska-focused “docudrama” with Sarah Palin this week to the major networks, producer Marc Burnett is also producing a reality series with Martha Stewart, it was announced today. Titled Help Me, Martha, the project is being shopped to network buyers in search of a home. The eight-episode series will follow Stewart and a team of eight experts as they perform “lifestyle makeovers" for the show's subjects, who are facing major dilemmas, ranging from wedding-related mishaps to party-planning disasters. When pressed at today's upfront presentation about his project with Palin, Burnett offered only this: “Clearly, I like being around strong women.” [Variety via EW]
