ACTRESS MONICA POTTER RENOVATES HER CHILDHOOD HOME IN NEW HGTV SERIES "WELCOME BACK POTTER"

Premieres Tuesday, October 11, at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT

New York [For Immediate Release - September 29, 2016] Actress, entrepreneur and mother, Monica Potter, best known for her role in NBC-TV's Parenthood, returns to Cleveland to renovate her childhood home near the shore of Lake Erie in HGTV's new series Welcome Back Potter. Premiering on Tuesday, October 11, at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, the series follows Monica, her mom, Nancy, and three outspoken sisters, Jessica, Brigette and Kerry, as they tackle the massive whole-home renovation.

The family sold the home in 1987, but it sat abandoned and in disrepair for the last five years. For Monica, restoring the 1,800 square-foot family home that was built in 1924 is something that she and her family can work on together. "I always wanted to buy the house back," said Monica. "After 30 years, it's finally back in the family."

In the series premiere, Monica, her sisters and mother walk through the home to discover little has changed since they left - everything from the rickety front steps, old wallpaper, furniture and even childhood mementos - were still there. But the family is eager to renovate the home and make it a place they can gather for special occasions and holidays. With help from a construction team, the sisters demolish walls and tear out the old cabinets and appliances to create an open-concept kitchen and dining area. With décor items from Monica's local shop, Monica Potter Home, fresh paint, new cabinetry, and a custom-made lighting feature created by Monica and her youngest sister Kerry, the combined rooms are transformed into a beautiful, airy and inviting space.

"This home was a magical place to grow up," said Monica. "It's the heart of my family."
