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The series premiere will see the pair snap up a large home riddled with issues – a cracked foundation and outdated kitchen – but comes with cathedral ceilings in the living room and a bonus loft space.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 is executive produced by Danny Downing, Ryan Hardison and Jaime Paxton Morey for Red Arrow Industries. For HGTV, Jodi Scheer exec produces.

Going for Sold premieres across HGTV on Aug. 1 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
