HGTV AND DIY NETWORK ANNOUNCE MORE THAN 1,200 HOURS OF 2013 PROGRAMMING

Home Category President Burton Jablin Presents Newest Offerings At Scripps Networks Interactive New York Upfront Event

NEW YORK - April 23, 2013 - With record breaking ratings and a first quarter that attracted more than 67 million adults, HGTV and DIY Network are set to premiere 27 new series, bring back more than 50 series and debut 50-plus specials in 2013. Burton Jablin, president of Scripps Networks Interactive's Home Category, plans to announce the new programming, which is part of more than 1,200 hours of home-centric offerings, during the New York Upfront event later today. The array of programs features new celebrities, industry experts, extraordinary home renovations, fantasy lifestyles and celebrates "home is where life happens."

"The universal appeal of home has resulted in the strong ratings success of programs like HGTV's Property Brothers and DIY Network's The Vanilla Ice Project," said Jablin. "Our new series showcase star talent and help viewers create their most personal place by turning their 'house' into a 'home.' New celebrity driven vehicles and 'hybrid hour' programs highlight the three things our viewers love the most - real estate, renovate and decorate. In addition, we offer options for viewers who prefer voyeuristic programs with a fantasy lifestyle spin."

At DIY Network, the brand is currently in production with four exciting new series featuring celebrities with a passion for home renovation and historic restoration: Vanilla Ice Goes Amish, The Rev. Run Project, The Daryl Hall Project and Bronson Pinchot Saves America. With no frills, no music and no power tools, Vanilla Ice lives and learns from the best craftsmen in the business - the Amish - in Vanilla Ice Goes Amish. Joseph Ward Simmons, best known as "Rev. Run" from American hip hop group Run DMC, keeps it in the family as his 9,000 sq. ft. home undergoes a complete renovation in The Rev. Run Project.

Bronson Pinchot, Hollywood's favorite character actor and salvage and renovation expert, gets a new 2014 spin-off on DIY Network, Bronson Pinchot Saves America - scavenging his way through the U.S. to rescue artifacts from demolition. Also next year, singer/songwriter Daryl Hall from musical duo Hall & Oates fuels his second passion for historic home restoration with his latest project, a quaint 1700s Connecticut home, in The Daryl Hall Project.

Chris Grundy returns to host the seventh season of Blog Cabin, an interactive home building series inviting fans to design the network's 2013 vacation home getaway - a 19th century beach cottage on North Carolina's beautiful "Crystal Coast." And America's favorite contractor Mike Holmes also joins DIY Network's popular line-up with the debut of Holmes Makes It Right.

On HGTV, break-out twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott, hosts of Property Brothers and Buying & Selling, face a new challenge in Brother vs. Brother. In this competition series pitting Jonathan, a licensed contractor, and Drew, a real estate agent, against each other, the brothers each mentor a team of five talented home improvement experts vying for a grand prize of $50,000. HGTV Star returns for an eighth season and features 10 talented contestants who compete in suspenseful challenges. The end goal: winning an HGTV show and a feature in HGTV Magazine.

Real-life cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri of HGTV's Cousins on Call, lower the wrecking ball on outdated, dysfunctional spaces and surprise neighborhood heroes with stunning, budget-friendly renovations in the new series Undercover Overhaul. Licensed contractor Amy Matthews leads a stealthy crew as they complete a major renovation while homeowners are out to dinner in Renovation Raiders. And top real estate agent, Mike Aubrey, along with contractor/designer Juan Barbieri - from Season 5 of The Bachelorette - shares a behind-the-scenes look at how to save clients cash by driving a hard bargain, budgeting for renovation, and landing the home of their dreams in Power Broker.

Also on HGTV, Emmy Award winning actress and The Bold and the Beautiful soap star Heather Tom and her musician husband James Achor overhaul rooms with one-of-a-kind character in Renovation Unscripted. And in the new series Staged to Perfection, Meridith Baer, owner of the largest home staging company in the world, shows how to decorate an empty house quickly so that it sells even quicker.
