Ahead of HGTV’s premiere of renovation spin-off series Property Brothers at Home on the Ranch on November 25, realscreen presents an exclusive clip of the Scott Brothers Entertainment-produced program, which follows Property Brothers hosts Jonathan and Drew Scott (pictured) and their brother JD down memory lane.
The 4 x 60-minute series – which will also air on Canada’s W Network in January – chronicles the three Scott brothers as they journey to the southern Alberta village of Longview, where the trio would often accompany their father as children. Once in Longview, the siblings undertake a 10-week renovation of a 2,400-acre ranch estate nestled at the foothills of the Canadian Rockies in time for the owner’s 50th anniversary party. As previously reported, the brothers will completely overhaul the 2,800-square-foot ranch house and adjacent 500-square-foot guest cabin while refurbishing and expanding the manor’s eight-stall horse stable.
Additionally, the series will also highlight the inaugural performance of the brother’s very first country music singles – “Hold On” and “Let the Night Shine In” – both of which were written by Jonathan and Drew, along with award-winning Nashville-based songwriters-producers Victoria Shaw and Chad Carlson.
The reality series is the latest in the line of spin-offs hailing from HGTV’s original Property Brothers format, which includes Brother vs. Brother, Buying & Selling with the Property Brothers and Property Brothers at Home. The latter title was the first production in the Scott Brothers Entertainment arsenal and followed Jonathan and Drew as they renovated Jonathan’s Las Vegas home in time for the annual Scott family reunion.
“Property Brothers at Home in Las Vegas was originally designed as a one off stunt, but it was so popular and it performed so well that we realized viewers were hungry for an inside look at the brothers lives,” Allison Page, GM of HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country tells realscreen.
Last November’s Las Vegas series premiere attracted 3.6 million viewers to the Scripps Networks Interactive-owned cable net and performed so well that HGTV executives were quick to approach the Scott brothers about producing yet another series that touched on an even more personal note for fourth quarter 2015.
Property Brothers at Home on the Ranch will dive even deeper into the lives of the Scott brothers as the series provides an intimate look into cherished childhood memories and how the siblings grew up on the ranch belonging to a family friend through old stories and photos.
“A lot of people don’t know this, but we were ranch kids — we grew up corralling horses, herding cattle and working hard on the farm,” said Jonathan in a statement, “so we can’t wait to take this trip down memory lane to help out our dear family friends.”
Though discussions for a follow-up series to Property Brothers at Home on the Ranch are currently underway, network executives will have to find similar personal elements “about [The Scott's] lives, about what they’re doing and what they have done.”
“If we can find that, we’d love to make another one,” Page says. “I suspect this series will do well and we’ll come back to them with the same question and proposal for them next year.”
- Property Brothers at Home on the Ranch premieres tomorrow (November 25) on HGTV at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
- Canada’s W Network will premiere the series in January 2016.
