Home renovation channel DIY Network has commissioned Los Angeles-based prodco Fields Entertainment to produce the eight-part series Boomtown Builder.

The 8 x 30-minute series will feature master craftsman Tim McClellan (pictured) as he reinvigorates once-grand homes in Arizona’s old mining “boomtowns”.

Each episode of the series will document McClellan as he uses the history of each property – from the home of the first boomtown dentist to the former newspaper printing press office – to preserve and restore the home’s original character while updating it with modern conveniences.

Boomtown Builder premieres in August on the Scripps Networks Interactive-owned channel. Simon Fields, Nathan Fields and Steve Zahren will serve as executive producers on the series.
