HGTV Offers New Series and Specials Aimed at Design and Pop Culture Fans in Its 2012 Programming Lineup

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2012 -- HGTV will roll out more than a dozen new original series and 20 specials in 2012, including a new season of the hugely popular HGTV Design Star, the new design series White Room Challenge and Selling London - a spin-off of the hit HGTV real estate series Selling NY. HGTV's programming will offer an exciting and entertaining lineup that features returning fan favorites, fresh new designers and several famous faces - either sharing their passion for design with viewers or receiving the HGTV treatment themselves.
