Toronto-based Tricon Films & Television has sold three of its home renovation shows to U.S. networks HGTV and DIY Network. All three seasons of Marriage Under Construction (39×30) have gone to HGTV in the U.S., while it currently airs on HGTV’s Canadian station. Produced by Tricon, the series is a docusoap following the struggles of a newlywed couple renovating their home. DIY Network, meanwhile, has picked up Family Renovation (13×30) and House of Bryan (13×30), both which air on HGTV Canada. SI Entertainment’s House of Bryan stars Disaster DIY host Bryan Baeumler as he builds his own family home, while Ocean Entertainment’s Family Renovation shows a family renovating their home while still living in it.
