NEW YORK [For Immediate Release - July 8, 2014] Real estate and renovation programming continue to find success on HGTV and DIY Network, so programming executives have greenlit five new series. HGTV has ordered Crowded House, Tiny House Builders (w.t), Half Price Paradise, and Colonial Rehab (w.t.); DIY Network has ordered Amish RENOgades, featuring talented craftsmen from the record-breaking series Vanilla Ice Goes Amish.

In HGTV's Crowded House (Stander Productions) 15 opinionated strangers follow home buying couples on their quest to locate, inspect and negotiate for the perfect home. Tiny House Builders w.t. (Gurney Productions) features master craftsman Derek Deidricksen as he travels to beautiful, remote locations to build amazing tiny homes, customized to clients' dreams.

Half Price Paradise (Scott Brothers Entertainment) is a series that features people who are tired of their over-priced big-city lives and begin a search for a new location that offers a better quality of life at a fraction of the cost. Each episode follows the family as they search for a new home while experiencing life in the new area. In the end, the family compares costs to find out if they have discovered their half price paradise.

HGTV continues to highlight historic home renovations with Colonial Rehab w.t. (Magnetic Productions). Tayloe Emery and his wife Catherine tackle a full restoration of Mount Airy, their 250-year old Virginia estate.

On DIY Network, Amish craftsmen Robert Schlabach and Albert Miller, who first captured America's attention in the award-winning series Vanilla Ice Goes Amish, are fish out of water when they leave their community to travel across the country and work on home improvement projects in Amish RENOgades (Juma Entertainment). From the big city of Chicago to the sunny beaches of Southern California, it's a brave new world when the Amish builders tackle modern tasks like social media and driving a car.


America's leading home and lifestyle brand, HGTV features a top-rated cable network that is distributed to more than 96 million U.S. households and the HGTV website, HGTV.com, the nation's leading online home-and-garden destination that attracts an average of four million unique visitors per month. DIY Network, currently in more than 58 million homes, covers a broad range of programming, including home improvement and landscaping. The network's award-winning website, DIYNetwork.com, consistently ranks among America's top home and garden Internet destinations for entertaining videos and home improvement advice. Headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn., HGTV and DIY Network are wholly owned by Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. (SNI).
