Discovery-owned HGTV stars Christina Anstead, Alison Victoria, and David Bromstad participated in a panel discussion on seizing on-camera opportunities with the network’s newest addition, New Kids on the Block singer Jonathan Knight, during the Television Critics Association (TCA) tour at The Langham Huntington hotel in Pasadena, California.
The on-screen talent were present with a slate of upcoming and ongoing projects at HGTV, capitalizing on their star power in the real estate and renovation space.
Christina Anstead (pictured, right), who made her name with now ex-husband Tarek El Moussa on Flip or Flop, stars in her own upcoming series: Christina on the Coast. The series sees Anstead turning her clients’ outdated properties into high-end showplaces. Christina on the Coast is produced by Pie Town Productions, with Tara Sandler, Jennifer Davidson and Lauren Metzger Warner serving as executive producers, Christina Anstead as co-executive producer and Jake Gibson as consulting producer. It premieres May 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Renovator and designer Grace Mitchell will be the face of One of a Kind, in which she’ll work to create spaces that reflect her clients’ family stories. One of a Kind is produced by High Noon Entertainment, with executive producers Jim Berger, Scott Feeley, Matt Walker and Reese Van Allen. The series premieres on March 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Lastly, Mediterranean Life will see house hunters tracking down the waterfront Mediterranean homes of their dreams. The show premieres with two back-to-back episodes March 10 at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Jonathan Knight, who dove into his passion for home renovation after a musical career with the New Kids on the Block, shows off his skills in the upcoming pilot Farmhouse Fixer, from High Noon Entertainment. The pilot is expected to premiere later this year.
Meanwhile, returning hits to the home and renovation network include Windy City Rehab (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT), in which Alison Victoria takes on large-scale Chicago home renovations; and My Lottery Dream Home (Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT), in which David Bromstad helps lottery winners across the country find and buy their first expensive home.
Also returning to the HGTV fold are sibling duo Leanne and Steve Ford, who refurbish tired Pittsburgh-area homes in Restored by the Fords (March 19 at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT) and married house flippers Bristol and Aubrey Marunde, who tackle Sin City’s most dilapidated properties in Flip or Flop Vegas (March 28 at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT).
“From the Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew, to Flip or Flop‘s Christina and Tarek, we’ve mastered the art of building stars. And when these stars resonate for our audience, we embrace the opportunity to build new hits with them,” said HGTV president Allison Page in a statement. “Cultivating and growing home renovation stars is a big part of HGTV’s success. We are passionate about bringing experts with a unique point of view on renovation and design to our audience.”
