HGTV and DIY Network have greenlit seven new series, including “America’s Most Desperate Kitchens,” featuring “Kitchen Cousins” hosts Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri.
“Log Cabin Living,” also set to air on HGTV, will follow couples leaving city living behind and searching for their perfect cabin in the woods. “The Shalina Joy Project” will follow a New Jersey teacher and house flipper as she renovates a Victorian mansion, and “Real Estate Riches” will follow real estate investor Daniel Wiafe and his wife Melinda as they purchase dilapidated homes, renovate them from top-to-bottom and flip them for resale.
Over on DIY, “The Treehouse Guys” will see teams of experts build beautiful tree houses in exotic locales like Hawaii, while “Miami Rehab” will follow Carolina Sullivan as she flips houses in the Florida beach town. And in “First Time Flippers,” novices at the renovating-and-reselling game will be spotlighted.
“We’re hyper-focused on developing and producing series that give viewers fresh perspectives on popular home themes,” said HGTV and DIY Network’s general manger, Allison Page.
“Audiences will enjoy the voyeuristic experience that comes from our newer fantasy lifestyle series like ‘Log Cabin Living’ and ‘The Treehouse Guys,’ but they’ll also find plenty of motivation to create their own perfect spaces when they watch renovation pros, like the cousins, in action. And, in the next few months, we’re adding two new faces — Carolina Sullivan and Shalina Joy — to our cadre of house-flipping and renovation experts, so there’ll be even more inspiration for our fans.”
