U.S. cable network FYI is to launch an hour-long transformation series called Red Hot Design on August 15.

The show follows Sacramento-based interior designer Shasta Smith, who heads a team of “grease monkeys” that salvage, repurpose and build vintage scrap metal into architectural elements. Smith, who owns the design shop Vintage Monkey, uses her talent and wit to keep team projects and deadlines intact.

Smith has owned Vintage Monkey for 15 years, and Red Hot Design (7 x 60 minutes) will follow her and her team from sketch to showroom, as works of vintage industrial art are created after they troll through scrapyards for inspiration and materials.

The series is produced for FYI by Cineflix, with Mark Poertner serving as executive producer and Mary Swanhaus serving as co-executive producer. FYI’s exec producers are Gena McCarthy and Toby Faulkner.

The series premieres on August 15 at 10 p.m EST.
