CALIFORNIA – An Emmy-nominated Filipino producer comes out from behind the scenes to host his own celebrity talk show.

On Sunday, Lifestyle Network's 'On Your Marc' will premiere on The Filipino Channel's Lifestyle Network.

Guests featured on the show include Vanessa Lachey, Olivia Newton-John and Ian Ziering.

Its host is a veteran producer of the Tyra Banks Show, Marc Anthony Nicolas.

"I'm so excited because I know these celebrities on a personal level. So you're going see a side of these celebrities that no other talk shows have ever done before," he said.

Meanwhile, also on the Lifestyle Network, fashionista and foodies can get their fill of what's chick and classy in "Style Bites" hosted by Kara Birkenstock.

The Thai-Filipino-American host showcases the latest fashion trends, hotspots and sumptuous food offerings in the US.

"As a woman, I'm a huge fan of Oprah. You know she's a powerful, strong host mogul. She's empowering and just so impressive," she said.

The Lifestyle Network run by ABS-CBN International had its big launch last year and promises to bring new living and travel programs to global Filipinos.

"The whole idea for Lifestyle is really to work with local producers, to create content by Filipino-Americans for Filipino-Americans. These are really milestones for us. Lifestyle Network will be available in Canada by July," said Jun Del Rosario, AVP of Global Content Distribution for ABS-CBN International

Lifestyle Network recently launched the mini-documentary series "Haute the Records" featuring Filipino fashion designers.

The show takes an in depth look into their talents and work process as they stage their way to success in mainstream and international fashion industry.
