Property Brothers stars Jonathan Scott (pictured, left) and Drew Scott (right) are heading to the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore later this month as part of a live tour accompanying the launch of HGTV in Asia.

Parent company Scripps Networks Interactive took HGTV to Singapore in December, marking the first time HGTV has launched as a 24/7 channel dedicated to home and lifestyle programming outside North America. The net is broadcast on the cable channel StarHub.

The Scott brothers are to appear in a series of road shows and dinner events in Singapore between February 23 and 26. Their series Buying and Selling and Brother vs. Brother are to air on HGTV in Asia in March and April respectively.

“Launching HGTV in Singapore was an exciting process and the feedback that we have received so far has been very positive,” said Derek Chang, MD of Scripps Networks Interactive for Asia Pacific, in a statement. “StarHub has been an excellent partner in bringing the channel to life, and we look forward to working with the team to bring our brightest HGTV stars to Singapore.

“Drew and Jonathan are fantastic, and I am confident that they will captivate and charm their fans here,” the exec continued. “We look forward to building their profile, and growing the channel into a household name as we bring HGTV to more viewers in the region this year.”
