HGTV is in production on a series starring dancers Derek Hough and Mark Ballas from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
Produced by Scott Sternberg Productions, Mark & Derek’s Excellent Flip will follow the pair as they gut, renovate and flip a mountain-view home in Southern California. The four-episode series will premiere on the U.S. cable network in early 2015.
Hough is a choreographer and the “winning-est champion” in the history of the Dancing with the Stars franchise, according to the network. Last year, he choreographed ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White’s gold medal-winning short program for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Ballas is a choreographer and singer-songwriter who released the pop single “Get My Name” earlier this year. He has spent 14 seasons on Dancing with the Stars and won the championship twice.
“Mark and I have worked together for years, but flipping a house is uncharted territory for us,” said Hough in a statement. “At the end of the day, this house is a significant investment in more ways than one, so we have to make this flip work. We’re putting our own blood, sweat and money on the line.”
