Discovery-owned home improvement channel HGTV has ordered a home renovation series that will provide Texas-sized makeovers to the worst homes in Houston’s best neighborhoods.
Produced by Red Arrow Industries, Going for Sold will document real estate agent Jon Pierre Tjon-Joe-Pin and his wife Mary, a former flight attendant-turned-designer, and the couple’s home renovation business.
Each episode will follow the parents of two as they overhaul dilapidated homes in the Houston area into affordable properties with high-end and bold designs that appeal to younger families.
The series premiere will see the pair snap up a large home riddled with issues – a cracked foundation and outdated kitchen – but comes with cathedral ceilings in the living room and a bonus loft space. The duo works to complete the transformation by adding a modern staircase, a sleek kitchen and luxurious master bath.
Going for Sold premieres across HGTV on Aug. 1 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
