WESTPORT, Conn. April 25, 2019 – Season 2 of the Emmy®-nominated series “Life On Mar’s: The Home Makeover Show,” to be available on Amazon Prime Video’s global streaming video service beginning in April 2019. Created and hosted by Mar Jennings, frequently referred to as America’s Top Lifestyle Expert, it is the first home makeover series filmed in Connecticut.
This second season has a twist: it tracks the renovation and restoration of all the homes on Mar’s very own charming street in downtown Westport, CT—including his own. Episodes follow Jennings’ design direction, humor and signature method while highlighting local resources and his talented team. Homes featured run the design gamut from 1800’s farmhouse to mid-century bungalow to 1990’s stacked colonial. By season’s end the neighborhood is transformed.
The series, its director and writer were the first-ever recipients of the inaugural People’s Telly Award, presented in June 2018, and have garnered a total of five Emmy® award nominations over the seasons.
Mar Jennings’ home and garden design expertise make him unique in the television arena—both as an on-camera personality and real-world, hands-on designer. The series highlights Jennings’ own ingenious design principles within the renovation. “I’m excited to continue sharing my six Casual Luxury design principles with a national audience—and give a glimpse inside my own home, too,” says Jennings. Each episode features new design challenges in a new home. Viewers become acquainted with each home’s history, get to know the homeowners and follow off-site trips for inspiration. Episodes include Jennings divulging details of the completed transformations and end with a final reveal.
Directed by Emmy®-winning director, Christopher Panton, and created by Mar Jennings, seasons 1 & 2 first aired on ABC’s WTNH receiving overwhelmingly positive response from viewers and critical acclaim, earning a total of five Emmy® nominations. The series is produced by S&J Multimedia LCC of Westport, CT, and is currently in production on Season 3; focused around a new group of homes, it is set to air beginning fall 2019. Season 3’s Amazon Prime Video streaming debut date is to be announced.
