The “Brady Bunch” cast has been spending a lot of quality, on-screen family time together recently, as they renovate their iconic home — the one they never actually shot inside for the ’70s sitcom as all the interiors were filmed at the Paramount lot in Hollywood.
In honor of the show’s 50th anniversary, the inside of the Studio City, California, house that became known as the “Brady Bunch House” by millions of viewers is being transformed into the on-screen home. And the whole thing is being taped for posterity, and the upcoming HGTV series “A Very Brady Renovation.”
The “Today” show previewed the event in the interview above on Thursday, showing Barry Williams (Greg), Christopher Knight (Peter), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Eve Plumb (Jan), and Susan Olsen (Cindy) reunite to each renovate one or two rooms.
According to interviewer Natalie Morales, the hope is to have the renovation done by September, in time for the 50th anniversary of the “Brady Bunch” premiere.
Last August, David Zaslav, the CEO of HGTV parent company Discovery, revealed during a second-quarter earnings call that the network had purchased the house for the project. (Yes, this is the auction Lance Bass was really upset about losing.)
“One of our projects for HGTV will speak to those ‘Brady Bunch’ fans on the call,” he said at the time. “You may have heard that the house from the iconic series was recently on the market in California. I’m excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and will restore the ‘Brady Bunch’ home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can.”
