HGTV has greenlit Undercover Overhaul, another series starring Anthony Carrino (pictured, left) and John Colaneri (right), the hosts of Kitchen Cousins and Cousins on Call.

The 6 x one-hour series has begun production, and will premiere in October.

The show will follow the contractor cousins as they take the wrecking ball to outdated and dysfunctional homes in each episode.

“Combining the element of surprise with help for deserving homeowners in need of a renovation, Undercover Overhaul is the perfect vehicle to broaden visibility for the cousins,” said Kathleen Finch, HGTV’s general manager. “A new series showcasing the cousins exemplifies our focus to identify and develop strong talent like Anthony and John, further establishing our dominance in home-related programming.”
