HGTV RENEWS SEVEN OF ITS POPULAR FANTASY LIFESTYLE SERIES

NEW YORK [For Immediate Release - February 22, 2017] Armed with the overall strong ratings performance of its fantasy lifestyle series, HGTV has renewed Beachfront Bargain Hunt, which earlier this month scored its highest-rated premiere episode ever for the series, as well as Caribbean Life, Island Life, Mexico Life, Island Hunters, Hawaii Life and Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation. In all, the network has commissioned 146 fresh episodes of the seven series. The new episodes are slated to air in 2017.

"HGTV is adept at developing lifestyle content that resonates with audiences that our advertisers want to reach," said John Feld, senior vice president, original programming and production for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. "The fantasy lifestyle series are outstanding ratings drivers for the network because everyone loves to watch real families search for affordable homes in gorgeous places around the world.

Caribbean Life follows families as they tour gorgeous - and affordable - homes on white sandy beaches. While most people only dream of living on an island, Island Life showcases properties across the islands of the U.S. that fit any budget and Beachfront Bargain Hunt features for-sale beach homes that won't break the bank.

In each episode of Mexico Life, families explore the country's quaint towns, vibrant green jungles and beautiful beaches in search of their perfect dream home. Island Hunters feature families who search the world's most beautiful islands to find their perfect tropical getaway, while Hawaii Life follows everyday families as they turn their fantasy of a Hawaii Life into a reality. Beachfront Bargain Hunt: Renovationfollows homebuyers as they purchase affordable oceanfront fixer uppers and transform them into relaxing beachfront getaways.

"The lifestyle fantasy programming works on several levels," added Feld. "But mostly it works because viewers want to believe that it is possible for everyone to find an amazing, reasonably priced home in a warm-weather location."
