Discovery+ is partnering with Nick Knowles, host of BBC’s DIY SOS and Who Dares Wins, for a 12-part series produced by UK unscripted outfit Curve Media, Realscreen has confirmed.

Heritage Rescue will focus on historical buildings in need of repair, with each episode focusing on a different project. Production is currently underway and will continue through to the fall of 2021.

The news was first reported by Deadline.

Also on the streamer’s slate are the Chopped spin-offs Chopped 420 (pictured)¬†and Chopped Next Gen, set to premiere in April and May respectively.

The 5 x 60-minute Chopped 420, hosted by comedian Ron Funches, will see four cannabis chefs challenged to create dishes over the course of three rounds from a mystery basket of ingredients for the chance to win $10,000. Each competitor must also navigate the Chopped greenhouse for cannabis or CBD-infused products to incorporate.

In Chopped Next Gen, actress/producer/creator Liza Koshy will challenge Generation Z chefs over five hour-long episodes in the culinary arena for the chance to win $10,000.

Both series are produced by Notional Entertainment.

Chopped 420 premieres April 20 and Chopped Next Gen premieres May 25.

In other Discovery news, HGTV is set to premiere the new series Bargain Block this April 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The series, produced by High Noon Entertainment, sees home renovation experts Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas help to restore rundown and abandoned houses in Detroit with the help of Detroit resident and real estate expert Shea Hicks-Whitfield.

The pilot follows builder and innovator Russell J. Holmes and designer Paige Poupart as they help homeowners get their stalled reno plans on track.
