I am producing a new show. It's hosted by a certified fitness coordinator for the secret service. He talks about fitness and nutrition, exercise etc..

What type of disclaimer do i need to put before the show?

I know it should say consult your physician before doing anything you hear on the show, but is there something else?

I would think you definitely need to state that the video is for entertainment purposes only. This seems to be common in "educational" content so that people can't sue because the information was construed as advice.

First and foremost you should really consult a lawyer on something like this, not a forum. People like to sue and I wouldn't mess around.

Thanks Brendan,

I was just checking if anyone had already gone through the lawyer process and came up with a universally accepted disclaimer

Hopefully Stephen has such a thing :) (Fingers Crossed + Toes)
