Bio Presents "Celebrity Life Coach" Featuring Actress Sean Young

One-Hour Special, With Handel Group's Lauren Zander, Airs Thursday, December 16th at 10PM ET/PT

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - America loves celebrities. We love to build them up and watch them fall. And when celebrities fall, the entourages flee leaving no one to give the celebrity a reality check. In the one-hour BIO special "Celebrity Life Coach" airing Thursday, December 16th at 10PM ET/PT, we follow Lauren Zander, "Life Coach" to the stars, of The Handel Group, as she takes on a new celebrity client in need of her coaching. For the first time in their lives, the celebrity will be faced with Lauren and her catch phrase: "Maybe it's you!" We watch as Lauren coaches the celebrity with her "take no prisoners" approach, by exploring their past and cleaning up the mess they've left behind; their present which requires tackling all of their current issues and their future as they work towards formulating a clear plan in order to achieve their goals. Lauren's unique Handel method of personal examination, honesty, and personal integrity will make them achieve visible success. This is not therapy; this is a true makeover of a person's life.

In this one-hour special episode, Lauren works with acclaimed actress Sean Young who starred in the box office hits Blade Runner and No Way Out. In the 80's, Sean's career went into a tailspin. Oliver Stone wrapped her out of Wall Street early, Warren Beatty fired her from Dick Tracy and James Woods sued her for harassment. The tabloids had a field day. She became better known in the press for her stunts like dressing up as the Cat Woman to try and get a part in the new Batman picture. Then in 2008, a drunken Sean heckled director Julian Schnabel during his acceptance speech at the DGA Awards cementing her image of unpredictability. With Lauren's help, can Sean stop her self-defeating behaviors and make it back into Hollywood?

"Celebrity Life Coach" is produced for A&E by Endemol USA. Executive producer is R. Greg Johnston. Co-executive producer is Gilda Brasch. Executive producers for A&E are Robert Sharenow, Stephen Harris and Jessica Morgan.
