(X) "THE TUDORS"
03/23/2014 (08:00PM - 09:00PM) (Sunday) : RENOWNED DESIGNER NATE BERKUS HOSTS NBC'S NEW REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS - FORMER NFL PLAYER EDDIE GEORGE AND DESIGNER MONICA PEDERSEN JOIN AS JUDGES - EACH WEEK TWO TEAMS OF DESIGNERS WILL BRING ABOUT TWO SWEEPING RENOVATIONS - Renowned designer Nate Berkus hosts NBC's bold new one-hour reality-competition series "American Dream Builders." Showcasing the talents of the most accomplished designers and home builders in the country, "American Dream Builders" pits 12 talented contestants against one another in a high-stakes competition designed to push everyone's creative reach. Joining Berkus on the show as judges are former NFL player-turned landscape architect Eddie George and interior design expert Monica Pedersen. This week, the teams tackle two Tudor-style homes across the street from one other. Team Red (headed by Tennessee-based builder Tarrick Love) attempts to build a bathroom vanity from a repurposed work bench and create a new dining room table out of the original kitchen's beloved hardwood floors. Team Blue (headed by Chicago builder Jay Riordan) must decide what they should do with the master bedroom. In a surprise twist for the contestants, Berkus invites a "neighborhood council" to vote on which house they feel is the best makeover. In the end, one designer from the losing team will be sent home.

DESCRIPTION: (from NBC's press release, May 2013) America's top designers, builders, architects and landscapers go head-to-head each week, putting their talents to the test on extreme home renovations. They'll tackle spaces that are architecturally diverse, resulting in epic transformations with impeccable design. These incredible transformations will be judged by host Nate Berkus and a panel of experts to determine which team achieved the best results. The losing team will then be forced to send one team member home. In the live finale, the two remaining competitors will each design and renovate a home on their own, bringing their unique visions to life. America will then vote and crown one contestant the winner. Finally, the two spectacular homes will be given away to two lucky viewers! Nate Berkus, Craig Plestis and Tom Shelly serve as executive producers. "American Dream Builders" is a production of Universal Television.
