Scripps Networks Interactive-owned how-to network HGTV has bolstered its Sunday programming slate with the addition of How Close Can I Beach? to the night’s lineup.

Produced by Switchblade Entertainment, the 13-episode fantasy lifestyle series will follow prospective home buyers as they tour coastal towns in the hopes of finding the perfect beachside home.

Each episode will follow the potential homeowners as they view homes that feature drastic differences in space, amenities and views, depending on their proximity to the shore. The families will then decide on their dream home.

Switchblade’s Brian Flanagan, Anthony Amoia, Michael Amoia, Sean Lee and David Bowles serve as executive producers.

How Close Can I Beach? premieres March 11 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.

“HGTV’s fantasy lifestyle content continues to deliver strong ratings for the network and that sparked the inspiration to add How Close Can I Beach? to the mix,” said John Feld, SVP of programming for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country, in a statement. “Millions tune in each Sunday night to see people just like them fulfill the dream of buying a home in a gorgeous location.”
