U.S. cable net RLTV has brought on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition carpenter and designer Paul DiMeo to be part of a transformative series for baby boomers.

Second Act, premiering on April 18 at 8 p.m. EST, will see DiMeo assemble a team of experts who will help assorted boomers take on new challenges, such as starting businesses or embarking on new career paths.

DiMeo, who starred in nine seasons of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, is also set to be part of National Geographic Channel’s first DIY series, Building Wild, announced earlier this week.

“I am so delighted to be working with RLTV on this series,” said DiMeo in a statement. “As many people know, I have a passion for renovation, and, as a boomer who has undergone life transformations myself, it’s particularly rewarding to help people renovate their lives and prepare them for the next act, which is most often a life change to which they are deeply committed.”

“RLTV delivers content specifically designed for the wants and needs of Generation 50+, and Paulie DiMeo and Second Act embody the heart of it: programming that is entertaining and relevant, and can inspire and help us improve and transform our lives,” added RLTV senior vice president of programming and production Elliot Jacobson.
