WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - June 6, 2008) - AmericanLife TV Network(SM) (, the cable network devoted to the Baby Boomer generation, will feature 13 new episodes of "Fixing Dinner" as part of the July programming primetime line-up.

"Fixing Dinner," was created in response to the common contemporary complaint that "we never sit down to dinner as a family!" Popular host and cookbook author Sandi Richard comes to the rescue with this weekly series that answers dinner-time cries for help. Each episode, Richard consults with a different family to show them how they can organize their kitchen, their cooking and their lives so that they can have a family dinner every night of the week. Sandi Richard is North America's foremost meal planner. She speaks to thousands of people across North America about strategies to get families back to the dinner table to create more balance in their lives. Sandi won AMPIA's Best Host - Female (non-news) at both the 2005 and 2006 Alberta Film and Television Awards.

"We are excited about airing 13 new episodes of 'Fixing Dinner.' Our Baby Boomer audience can really relate to these real families' difficulties in getting everyone to sit down for a meal together. And with its easy meal plans and recipes available on our website this is an entertaining and fun series to get real answers and that is very important to us at AmericanLife TV," says Mark Ringwald, VP of Programming, AmericanLife TV Network.
