MIPCOM Picks 2010: Inside the Box

Ty Pennington is a household name when it comes to home improvement programming (pun definitely intended). Here, he teams up with Canadian design and lifestyle guru Janette Ewen to pit two teams of 'armchair designers' against each other in a race to artfully decorate a space with rather random ingredients from a box.

Ty Pennington is a household name when it comes to home improvement programming (pun definitely intended). From Trading Spaces to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Ty has become the chiseled face of home shows. Here, he teams up with Canadian design and lifestyle guru Janette Ewen to pit two teams of ‘armchair designers’ against each other in a race to artfully decorate a space with rather random ingredients from a box. And when we say ‘random’ we mean it – everything except, perhaps, a kitchen sink is fair game for Ty and Janette to toss into the mix.
