Chef Tyler Florence joins lineup

AOL continues to expand its original programming as it launches three broadband series featuring leading lifestyle experts.

“Cooking With Tyler Florence” will see the celebrity chef share the ingredients of his AOL-exclusive recipes; “Home Entertaining With Michele and Gia” will follow the duo as they help AOL users plan and throw house parties; “Home Improvement With Eric Stromer” will help viewers with their own home improvement projects.

The programs will feature 120 custom-made “Trade Secrets” videos that spotlight quick tips from the pros themselves, including 78 unique three- to five-minute online video episodes. Each video will allow users to view step-by-step photo galleries, download audio podcasts or send the episode to their cell phones.

GMC is sponsoring the free series, which will integrate its vehicles.
