The daunting difficulties of a dream house take its toll on a young couple in Renovation Realities: Ben & Ginger.

The Ben and Ginger in question are ABC News chief meteorologist and Good Morning America weather anchor Ginger Zee and her husband, NBC and Extra reporter Ben Aaron. Having bought a fixer-upper in New York City, expert handywoman Ginger is going to try and teach her less-than-handy husband how to turn their house into a dream home.

This 4 x 30 series is currently being filmed and is set to premiere in June 2017 on Scripps’ DIY Network.

This show is produced for DIY by Picture Road Productions and serving as executive producers are Ross Babbit, Dale Roy Robinson, and Mike Stafford.

The new series also shares its title with the RIVR Media produced Renovation Realities, which ran for 17 seasons on DIY Network from 2007 to 2016. Each episode centered around the challenges faced by renovators, many not necessarily experienced contractors, trying to build their dream home with their own two hands.

Renovation Realities is a favorite in our DIY Network lineup, and we can’t wait to add national TV personalities Ginger Zee and Ben Aaron to the list of couples featured in the series. Like any homeowner undertaking their first home reno, Ginger and Ben will face the unexpected ups and downs of dealing with a fixer upper,” John Feld, SVP original programming and production for DIY Network told realscreen in an e-mail.
