NEW YORK [March 22, 2017] Top-performing cable network HGTV, which roared past nearly every competitor in 2016 to deliver its highest-rated, most-watched year ever and scored its 10th consecutive year as the #1 cable net among upscale women - is amplifying its 2017 programming lineup with an impressive 567 hours of original programming, including nine new series and fresh episodes of 28 popular titles.

On the digital side, HGTV.com, as part of the Scripps Lifestyle Studios, continues to expand its home and do-it-yourself digital content offerings in 2017. With more than 123 million monthly video views, HGTV.com is the go-to resource for home and design inspiration - reaching new audiences across digital, social and OTT platforms.

"For the first time ever, HGTV finished the year as a top 10 network in primetime among broadcast and cable networks, which is a powerful achievement," said Allison Page, general manager, U.S. programming and development for HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country. "The reason we've seen consistent success is because we have the ability to create on-air and online content that surpasses expectations for audience delivery in an ever-changing environment."

Chip and Joanna Gaines, whose ratings juggernaut Fixer Upper has already attracted more than 20 million viewers in its fourth season, has sparked a new spin-off series, Fixer Upper: Behind the Design. The half-hour, behind-the-scenes companion will focus on Joanna's process to create the breathtaking designs showcased in each Fixer Upper episode.

HGTV also will franchise one of its most popular series, Flip or Flop, with five new duos and titles set in cities across the United States.

On tap for April, Flip or Flop Vegas stars MMA fighter Bristol Marunde and his wife, Aubrey, as they scoop up some of Sin City's most neglected homes and transform them into sparkling showstoppers. Flip or Flop Atlanta (wt) follows Ken and Anita Corsini as they run a family business to update old Southern houses into modern homes that retain their original charm. Flip or Flip Fort Worth (wt) stars flippers Andy and Ashley Williams, military veterans turned real estate investors, who buy, rehab and sell run-down houses all over the Lone Star state. Flip or Flop Nashville (wt) features real estate expert Page Turner and former NFL player and builder DeRon Jenkins - exes who still love working together to transform outdated properties into beautiful family homes. Flip or Flop Chicago (wt)showcases Mark and Liz Perez, who are inspired to improve older Windy City neighborhoods, one house at a time.

"The tremendous, consistent ratings success of the original Flip or Flop with Tarek and Christina El Moussa inspired us to take a new look at house flipping programming," said Page. "We saw an opportunity to highlight what works in other regions by featuring successful couples that had mastered the art of flipping in their town."

Premiering last night, Home Town, starring Mississippi-based home renovation experts, Ben and Erin Napier, is the first highly anticipated new series to hit the network's schedule in 2017. Erin, an artist-turned-designer, and Ben, a woodworker and craftsman, deliver custom renovations, featuring eclectic yet traditional designs, for families in their small town.

Upcoming and returning series on HGTV continue to showcase immensely popular home and lifestyle themes, such as families who renovate and flip properties to improve neighborhoods and rebuild communities; fantasy destination programming that features gorgeous locales around the world; and renovation/design competitions that amp up the fun of home improvement. A new season of the hit competition series Brother vs. Brother stars the sizzling Scott brothers as they battle in a new round of their home renovation rivalry in the fun beach community of Galveston, Texas. And, after another successful season of Property Brothers at Home, the network has triggered a new installment of that series for a year-end premiere. Also hitting the air are new seasons of top performers: Fixer Upper (Chip and Joanna Gaines); Property Brothers; Love It or List It(Hilary Farr and David Visentin); Listed Sisters (Lex and Alana LeBlanc); and Good Bones (Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak).

HGTV also added new installments to its House Hunters franchise, including Beach Hunters, whichtravels to exquisite beach destinations to follow buyers in search of their beachside dream homes and House Hunters Family, where the whole family gets a say in the home buying process. Each episode features parents and their kids as they house hunt together to select which place suits them best. House Hunters: Outside the Box features open-minded buyers who want to make themselves at home in unconventional properties, such as abandoned gas stations, old windmills or rundown movie theaters.

HGTV's highly successful fantasy destination programming gets three new entries, including Tiny Paradise, which features tiny tricked-out homes as they are built in enviable locales like Maui, Hawaii; Tulum, Mexico; and Telluride, Colorado. Lakefront Bargain Hunt Renovation highlights families who search for the perfect lakeside fixer upper, and Mountain Life follows couples house hunting for their dream mountaintop retreat. Other series in this genre also will get new seasons, including: Beachfront Bargain Hunt, Lakefront Bargain Hunt, Caribbean Life, Island Hunters, Mountain Life, We Bought the Farm, Island Life and Hawaii Life.

"Established stars and proven hits help shape our programming strategies, but we also take the time to identify compelling expert talent who will resonate with our audiences," added Page.
