Finally, some positive news on the Smollett front.
With Jussie apparently not returning to TV next season, his siblings Jake and Jazz pick up the slack with their new lifestyle series set for CLEO TV.
“Living By Design with Jake and Jazz,” premiering Saturday, May 4 at 12 p.m. EST, finds the duo transforming the living, work, and play spaces of millennial families and creating simple solutions to everyday home design dilemmas.
Each episode features inspirational stories of participating guests, an exciting reveal of the new space and a shared meal with recipes curated by Jake and Jazz.
Here’s more from CLEO:
In the premiere episode, Jake and Jazz help revamp the studio apartment of a budding publicist, Meghan, who’s relocated to Koreatown – a hip, urban center in Los Angeles. Jazz takes Meghan’s space from drab to fab with beautiful pops of pink and bold accent pieces, while Jake builds her a custom headboard. During the exciting reveal, not only is there a surprise guest from back home, but Jake and Jazz also show Meghan how to entertain in her new space. They toast to the good life with Rosé margaritas and indulge in surf and turf tacos complete with shrimp and steak. To top off the appetizing meal, Jazz bakes fluffy brown sugar doughnuts and piles them high enough to find their way to your heart.
The multifaceted duo are buzz-worthy influencers who’ve made a mark in the lifestyle and cooking arenas. Jake is a celebrity chef, lifestyle guru, actor and content creator who also executive produced the Food Network series “Smollett Eats.” He has also appeared on “The Today Show,” “The Chew” and is a resident chef on “The Rachael Ray Show.”
