Scripps Howard News Service (SHNS) columnist Betsy Hart has landed a production deal for a reality-TV series titled “It Takes a Parent.”
The show will be based around the talk-radio program Hart does out of Chicago, and will follow her as she talks to troubled families about problems in their children’s lives.
Hart is a single mother of four whose “From the Hart” column takes a slightly sterner approach to parenting than some other features.
She has been syndicated by the United Media-marketed SHNS since 1994.
Hart is also the author of “It Takes a Parent: How the Culture of Pushover Parenting is Hurting Our Kids” (Putnam/2005).
