San Francisco Television Just Got Glamorous

Sunday night television just got glamorous (or at least it did in San Francisco — the rest of the country will have to wait!)

Two fashion-loving, high-heeled entrepreneurs have each created their own television shows packed with the kind of sparkling eye candy that is just the thing needed to enliven the doldrums of Sunday night television. Both shows air in the San Francisco Bay Area on KRON, with plans to roll out to other markets nationally in just a few months.

Marybeth La Motte tests the Ferrari California on Red Carpet Bay Area

Red Carpet Bay Area

Produced by Marybeth La Motte, who is also the show’s on-air host, Red Carpet Bay Area focusses on fashion, beauty, luxury products and social events that are all based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Recent episodes featured segments on the Epi Center Med Spa, fashion show producer Charleston Pierce, RTL Jewelry, a black tie evening at the De Young Museum, and a tour of as $16 million mansion. The show is a great way to find out about businesses and events that you might otherwise overlook.

Airs each Sunday on KRON at 6:30 PM.

Elisabeth Laurence and Donna Karan on Lives of Style

Lives of Style

Produced by the powerhouse mother-daughter team of Elisabeth and Erin Laurence, who have both had extensive experience in television and print media, Lives of Style is based in San Francisco, but profiles famous tastemakers and luxury events around the world. It’s similar in subject matter to the 1980s hit Lifestyles of The Rich And Famous, but with a female jetsetter as host, and a big focus on fashion and beauty. The first episode, which received fantastic ratings, featured interviews with Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Ralph Rucci, Eva Longoria Parker, Dr. Patricia Wexler, and others.

Airs regularly each Sunday on KRON, starting in June 2010.
