HGTV has started production on three new character-driven series, Junk Gypsies, Kitchen Cousins and Weekends with Luis, set to air in the last quarter of 2011.

Junk Gypsies stars sisters Amie Sikes and Jolie Sikes-Smith (pictured), who design homes for country music stars and Hollywood actors with a unique design philosophy: to find “junk” to transform homes. Their quintessential look, a mix of colorful flea market finds and funky vintage pieces, has been documented on the Sikes sisters’ site Gypsyville.com. The series has a sneak peek on November 27 at 7 p.m. EST.

“We believe in using ‘decadent junk’ to create fun, vibrant styles,” said Sikes.

Two other series are also in production, set to air by the end of 2011. Kitchen Cousins stars designer-contractor cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, as they remodel troubled kitchens into works of art.

In Weekends with Luis, meanwhile, Miami-based contractor Luis Bosch helps homeowners take on a weekend project that they have been putting off doing.

In addition to the three new series, HGTV said it has more than 30 new series in the pipeline for 2012.
