HGTV - March Series
Newcomers THE ANTONIO TREATMENT, TOUGH AS NAILS and HOME RULES will all launch next month.

[via press release from HGTV]

Lots of exciting new weekly series to launch on HGTV in mid-March, including:

� The Antonio Treatment (hosted by the fourth season winner of HGTV Design Star, Antonio Ballatore, who offers wildly creative, contemporary designs for homeowners)

� Home Rules (relationship expert Fran Harris helps disorganized families bring back order in their lives and houses)

� Tough As Nails (captures the day-to-day drama for one of Massachusetts' most successful -- and one of the state's few female -- residential contractors, Cindy Stumpo)


THE ANTONIO TREATMENT - Premieres Sunday, March 14 at 10:00 pm ET/PT

Antonio Ballatore, the season four champion of HGTV Design Star, is ready to bring his distinct and edgy design aesthetic to HGTV audiences with his new series. Each week, Antonio will push the limits of contemporary design by employing the talents of a variety of unorthodox artisans, including graffiti artists, eccentric glass blowers and metal workers, who will help bring his radically original custom creations to life. In the first episode, Antonio redesigns EXTRA host Mario Lopez's boxing gym.

TOUGH AS NAILS - Premieres Sunday, March 14 at 11:00 pm ET/PT

Cindy Stumpo is one of the most successful residential contractors in Massachusetts. She's a strong, independent woman making a name for herself in construction: a field known for its male bravado and tough guy antics. Luckily, Cindy is as tough as they come and she's making a killing, building high end, multimillion-dollar luxury homes for the last 18 years. Just as Cindy is in the middle of the action with her workers, she is at the center of her family. Her mother is her receptionist at work and never seems to please Cindy. Her daughter, who's perpetually late, is trying desperately to lay claim to the business and follow in her mom's footsteps. Then there's the men in her life; Chad, her son, future pro golfer and Joe, her ex-husband/employee. No matter what, Cindy always has her hands full and she's blazing her own trail every step of the way. It's this fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants business that creates the day-to-day drama that is Cindy's world!

HOME RULES - Premieres Monday, March 15 at 9:00 pm ET/PT

In each episode, relationship expert Fran Harris will explore why a frazzled family is struggling to find calm in the chaos of their daily lives. After assessing the issue, Fran and a designer will help ease the pandemonium by uncovering the reasons behind all the chaos and clutter to give the homeowners a second chance at a well-designed home life. One month later, Fran will return to find out how life has changed for the family thanks to their new space.
