ALL-NEW COMPETITION SERIES "HOME FREE" BREAKS GROUND WEDNESDAY, JULY 22, ON FOX

Host Mike Holmes to Award the Winning Couple a Dream Home

FOX has ordered HOME FREE, a new competition series that will feature never-before-seen twists and plenty of surprises, as couples vie to win their dream home. From Relativity Television and executive producer Tom Forman ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"), and hosted by famed professional contractor Mike Holmes ("Holmes on Homes(R)"), the eight-episode unscripted series breaks ground Wednesday, July 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

"HOME FREE is a 'renovation' of the home makeover genre and FOX is, without question, the right network to partner with," said Tom Forman, CEO of Relativity Television. "We're thrilled to have host Mike Holmes, the most legit name in renovation. He's going to inspire our contestants, but also push them to the limit...and that's a great thing. I've done some big shows, but this is the biggest, complete with all sorts of twists and turns you'll have to watch to believe. We can't wait to get renovating."

"A home is way more than brick and mortar. So being part of this new series and partnering with FOX is truly exciting for me," said Holmes. "I'm ready to break ground with these couples. It's going to be a lot of sweat and tears but I promise you, all worth it in the end...trust me on this."

On HOME FREE, nine deserving couples are challenged to revive one run-down home every week. During each episode, Holmes will present the couples with tasks designed to test and challenge the skills of these do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Holmes will be with the competitors every step of the way - picking apart their work and demanding they meet his high standards, while also sharing his expertise and guidance to help them reach new heights. But in a surprise twist, when the work is done for the day, the couples don't have far to travel to get home... because not only must they work together to restore the home, they must all live together in the same dilapidated home 24/7. The more they accomplish, the better they sleep at night.

Each week, the couples with the best work will move forward in the competition, while the couple who didn't perform up to code will face elimination. Eliminations will continue each week, until only two couples remain, who will fight to the finish to win their ultimate dream home.

Holmes is a professional contractor and the host and creator of the hit TV series "Holmes on Homes(R)," "Holmes Inspection" and "Holmes Makes It Right." After working in the building and renovation industry for more than 20 years, Holmes was asked to develop and host his own television series, "Holmes on Homes(R)," which became an international success and broke ratings records, solidifying his career in television. With more than 30 years' experience as a licensed contractor, Holmes has been able to use television as a tool to educate homeowners on how to manage a renovation; what to look for in contractors; the right products for the right job; proper home repair and maintenance; and their rights as homeowners.

HOME FREE is produced by Relativity Television and executive-produced by Tom Forman, George Verschoor, Trice Bartow, Brad Bishop, Andrew Marcus and Mike Holmes. The series will be distributed internationally by ELECTUS.
