U.S. cable network DIY is to follow the remodeling of the home of Run DMC’s Joseph Simmons, aka Rev Run, in a 10-episode series called Rev Run’s Renovation.

Premiering on January 4 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, the series follows Rev Run, his wife Justine, and their kids Diggy, Russy and Miley – and a team of builders – as they renovate the family’s 9,000 square foot home in New Jersey.

The episodes will include the design and construction of bedrooms and custom bathrooms for the kids, Justine’s plans for the kitchen, and Run’s hopes for an indoor pool and spa.

Rev Run and Michael Lehman serve as executive producers.

“Rev Run is a legend in the music business, but he and his family are like any other first-time home remodelers,” said Steven Lerner, senior VP of programming and development for HGTV and DIY Network. “They’re dealing with noise, dust, the local zoning board—every home-owner who has undertaken a major remodel can relate.”

“Letting people observe our home renovation has allowed me to share our family values with our fans and other renovation lovers,” added Rev Run. “There is nothing more important to me than family and the home.”
