Scripps Networks Interactive-owned channel HGTV will usher in 2016 with an all-premiere slate of hour-long specials and series debuts on New Year’s Day.

The network’s all-premiere New Year’s Day lineup will include debuts of the recently commissioned Mexico Life (4 x 30 minutes), following homebuyers as they search for private oceanside properties; and the Beyond Entertainment-produced My Lottery Dream Home, which shadows host David Bromstad as he goes house-hunting with recent lottery winners.

HGTV will also broadcast three new one-hour specials, including Ellen’s Design Challenge: Meet the Cast, which will introduce the 10 contestants selected for season two of Ellen’s Design Challenge (pictured); Mighty Tiny Houses, in which hosts Jenna and Guillaume tour tiny homes across the U.S.; and HGTV Dream Home 2016, offering an exclusive look at the newly remodeled Merritt Island, Florida, sweepstakes home.

The day-long event begins at 11 a.m. EST/PST with Rose Parade 2016 coverage, hosted by Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott and entertainment journalist Nancy O’Dell. House Crashers host Josh Temple will provide live street-side interviews from along the Rose Parade route.
