HOMEOWNERS SMASH THEIR WAY TO SPECTACULAR RENOVATIONS ON DIY NETWORK'S "SLEDGEHAMMER"

NEW YORK [For Immediate Release - July 21, 2014] Popular DIY Network host and licensed contractor Jason Cameron helps homeowners smash their way to gorgeous new spaces by wrecking and remodeling their worst rooms in DIY Network's newest series, Sledgehammer. Premiering Wednesday, August 6, at 10 p.m. and 10:30 ET/PT, Sledgehammer features homeowners who think they're trying out for a home improvement show, but instead get a surprise visit from Jason who promises to fix any room they can completely demolish in 30 minutes.

"We see these homeowners on-camera talking about all the stuff they hate about their house, but they have no idea that we're going to give them a chance to pulverize a room or two and create their dream space," said Jason. "The catch is that each room must be completely gutted before they can move on to wreck the next room, otherwise we will not renovate it. Risky yes - but the payoff could be great."

During the premiere, homeowners Simon and Molly demolish their room of choice: an interesting basement. With a leprechaun mural that needs to come down, a drop ceiling and a bar on its last legs, they are ready to take out the walls and have a comfortable entertaining space for their family. Then, at 10:30 p.m. watch Chris and Lynsie tackle their kitchen with the hopes of also getting a new bathroom and only two minutes left on the clock. Both couples want two room remodels, but as the clock ticks down, they may face cleaning up the mess on their own if they can't demo the space in time.

"Sledgehammer not only offers a new twist on the home renovation process, but it showcases the ultimate homeowner fantasy-ripping out hated rooms and replacing them with a gorgeous new one," said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV and DIY Network. "You smash it, we fix it- doesn't get much better than that."
