Academy Award nominee and Emmy-winning actress Melissa McCarthy is set to star in a new Discovery+ home renovation series with her cousin and fellow actress Jenna Perusich.
The Great Giveback with Melissa McCarthy and Jenna Perusich (w/t) will see the pair surprise people with home transformations. The two stars will first learn heartwarming stories about people nominated for a home makeover by their loved ones, and then with the help of an expert team, they’ll makeover their homes with customized redesigns.
The Great Giveback is slated for streaming in spring 2022. The series is produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Drew and Jonathan Scott serving as executive producers with McCarthy.
McCarthy and Peruish have taken on home makeover projects on TV before in the HGTV series Celebrity IOU.
“When my cousin Jenna and I did Celebrity IOU for her parents, we saw first-hand what a positive impact a home renovation can have,” McCarthy said in a news release.
“In a world where so much emphasis is on the negative, we wanted to show how amazingly kind people can truly be. The Great Giveback will introduce you to some remarkable people who have given so much of themselves to others. We can’t wait to shine the light on them.”
