American broadcast network ABC has picked up a one-hour special from UKTV network Home, which brought Extreme Makeover: Home Edition‘s Ty Pennington (pictured) to England for a special community pool revamp.

Ty’s Great British Adventure 2011, a TPTV and TwoFour Productions special, sees Pennington in Portishead to save the community’s open air swimming pool, one of the few left in England.

With just seven days to get the project done, Pennington and crew raced against the clock to revitalize the pool for the looming summer months.

The one-hour special airs on August 7 (8 p.m. EST) on ABC and is executive produced by Ty Pennington and Leigh Seaman for TPTV, and Joe Houlihan and Melanie Leach for TwoFour Productions UK.
