TV One Primetime to Have Lifestyle Bent

TV One’s primetime lineup will feature a slew of lifestyle-oriented fare, including cooking, makeover and home-design series, during the 2004-05 season.

Lee Gaither, executive vice president of programming and production at the African-American-targeted network, said TV One next month will bow G. Garvin, a culinary show featuring the former The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co. LLC and Morton’s Restaurant Group Inc. executive chef, and Makeover Manor, the first transformation show focusing exclusively on beauty and style tips for African Americans.

The network also plans a January premiere for Living with Soul (working title), a home-design show featuring nationally recognized designer Phyllis Bowie.
