[via press release from ABC]

ABC.COM AND ENDEMOL USA LAUNCH "EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" SOCIAL GAME ON FACEBOOK

Players Can Build Virtual Homes for Families Featured on the Show Or Choose from Thousands of Fictional Characters

Each week fans of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" tune in to watch Ty Pennington and his design crew build new homes for people in need. With each new challenge, the team conquers unexpected obstacles and is always forced to dream up new creative solutions.

With that spirit in mind, ABC.com and show producers are launching a new Facebook social game, http://abc.tv/EMHEgame, where players can build virtual homes for actual families from each week's episode, or work with an almost endless supply of fictional scenarios in order to play as often as they want.

In the game, players are presented with their choice of families and the specific design challenges they require. For instance, they may need an air purifier for an asthmatic, wheelchair access or extra counter space for an aspiring chef. Once players have decided, the fun begins! They're given volunteers and their pick of design elements, including everything from the house shape and floor plan to wall d�cor, flooring, appliances, recreational items and more. Tastes range from the eclectic to the modern, from the traditional to the unexpected. Those who really want to flex their creative muscles can access even more design features and more volunteer help using Facebook Credits.

Players progress in the game by earning "Hearts" to level up. Bonus Hearts are earned when players quickly finish the floor plan and incorporate the family's needs.

Finished floor plans are saved in a "Scrapbook" that can be shared and rated between friends.

Each Wednesday, the family featured in the upcoming episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will be added to the game, giving players a sneak peek at who the family is and what their special needs are. Artwork based on real family photos will also be available. Players who reveal the family's new house before the show airs get bonus "Hearts and Levels" points.

"This game gives the show fans a way to interact with 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' all week long, and to look forward to the episode airing each Sunday, where they can see how the REAL work by Ty and crew compares to their own work," said Tina Hoover, VP Social Media & Interactivity, Endemol USA.

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" airs Sundays at 8:00 p.m., ET. It's produced by Endemol USA, of Endemol Holding, and executive-produced by Brady Connell & George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
