Discovery-owned lifestyle network HGTV has made several additions to its 2022-23 programming slate, greenlighting six new renovation, restoration and design series.
First up is Revealed, in which designer Veronica Valencia digs into a family’s ancestral backstory in order to create customized interior design plans that will speak to the homeowners’ culture, heritage and personal history. The series is produced by RTR Media, and executive produced by Toni Miceli, Jenna Keane, Kit Redmond, Liz Kerrigan and Mickey McLaughlin.
RTR Media is also responsible for Renovation 911, in which the sibling duo of Kirsten Meehan and Lindsey Uselding set out to rescue Minneapolis homes that have recently suffered borderline-catastrophic damage. After assessing the extent of the destruction, the sisters will work with the homeowners to not only rebuild their property, but also transform it into a fully renovated dream home. Executive producers on the series are Toni Miceli, Jenna Keane, Kit Redmond, Liz Kerrigan, Lindsey Weidhorn and John Platt.
Archaic and erratic home design gets a modern makeover in Fix My Frankenhouse (w/t), in which the Boston-based husband-and-wife home reno team of Denese and Mike Butler team up with their master-carpenter fathers, John Butler and Peter Doyle, to make sense of older properties that have been rendered ungainly, illogical and/or ugly by decades of poorly thought-through additions or redesigns.
High Noon Entertainment is behind the series, which is executive produced by Scott Feeley, Glenna Stacer-Sayles, Sarah Presta, Victoria Levy and Adam Bradley.
On Luxe for Less, interior designer to the stars Michel Smith Boyd shows regular folk how to give their homes a high-end look on a budget via an array of savvy, cash-saving tactics. The series comes from Fields Entertainment, with Simon Fields, Nathan Fields and Steve Zahren serving as executive producers.
Old-school luxury gets a major facelift in Saving the Manor (w/t), in which architect Dean Poulton and ex-real estate agent Borja de Maqua undertake an epic renovation task: a singlehanded overhaul of a formerly majestic and now decaying English estate, which the married couple will seek to transform into both a home for themselves and a vacation/event rental space while preserving the 500-year-old manor’s history and heritage.
The series is produced by Tremendous! Entertainment, and executive produced by Colleen Needles Steward, Shannon Keenan Demers, Ronak Kordestani and Thomas Chenoweth.
Finally, Small Town Potential from Fireworks Media Group takes viewers to New York’s Hudson Valley, where professional and personal partners Davina Thomasula (a real estate agent) and Kristin Leitheuser (an expert builder) team with Leitheuser’s master-carpenter dad to help clients find, purchase, and renovate deceptively unremarkable properties into dream homes. Jesse Fawcett is executive producer, while Kaleb Keene serves as showrunner.
“Just when our audience thinks HGTV has told every possible story about home, we create brand new series with more compelling personalities and fascinating home renovation journeys that our vast viewership wants to watch,” said Jane Latman, president of HGTV and streaming home content for Discovery, Inc. “We had four of the top-10 highest-rated unscripted freshman series last year, [and] these six new shows will be just as addictive and escapist as our other series.”
Premiere dates for the new series are to be announced.
