Produced by California-based Big Table Media, the 10 x 60-minute series follows Victoria as drops a slew of cash to score fixer-uppers in Chicago’s historic neighborhoods.

In the premiere episode, Victoria overhauls a property in the historic Bucktown area while facing a harsh winter that nearly derails her plans to have the property ready for spring. The overhaul includes new porches, an upscale kitchen, a larger master suite and custom touches throughout the home to finish off the renovation.

Windy City Rehab premieres on Jan 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.
