What is "The Revolution"? Yes, soap fans know it as one of the shows that's taken over the timeslots of their dearly-departed daytime dramas (R.I.P. "One Life To Live"), but this is one show that might be compelling enough to squash their boycotts.
Executive producer JD Roth has assembled an all-star team of experts from every field -- "Project Runway" mentor and style guru Tim Gunn, celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, women's health expert Dr. Jennifer Ashton, relationship therapist Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" home guru Ty Pennington -- to help people truly change their lives on TV.
The pros have been hard at work for months now, working with their makeover subjects, whom they call heroes for many different reasons. Some of the people on the show survived Hurricane Katrina, others are too busy protecting and serving as police officers to take care of themselves, but they all have one thing in common: They're ready to make changes in their routines and habits to live healthier, happier lives.
"The Revolution" will show us the ups and downs of their five-month transformations over the course of five days, with a new total life makeover spanning each week. Watch our video interview with all the hosts and Roth below to get their take on what makes this series so unique.
"The Revolution" premieres Mon., Jan. 16, 2 p.m. EST/1 p.m. PST on ABC.
