FYI(TM) UNVEILS PROGRAMMING SLATE FOR 2017

9 NEW SERIES AND 5 NEW SEASON PREMIERES

NEW YORK, NY - March 27, 2017 - FYI today announced that it will add 9 new original series and returning seasons of 5 hit series, totaling over 100 hours of programming, to its roster in 2017. The announcement was made by Gena McCarthy, EVP of Programming and Development for FYI.

FYI's programming slate for 2017 features a robust line-up of unscripted content focusing on three core lifestyle genres: food, relationships and home. From following culinary prodigies who compete in cook-offs with their overbearing parents in tow, to the brand-definitional series, "Tiny House Nation," FYI continues to create new genres and trend-setting content with a younger, more modern sensibility.

FYI's young and affluent digital audience has grown triple digits across all platforms since January 2015. The brand continues to drive audience engagement and buzz through several short form series, including "Married Life" and "Upgrade My Bae," where couples get a chance to spice up their partner's style by turning them into the fantasy "bae" they always dreamed of.

Over the coming months, FYI will announce programming premiere dates for its 2017 roster. Below are some highlights:

9 NEW SERIES PREMIERES

You Can't Turn That Into a House - New Series

In "You Can't Turn That Into a House," Missouri-based brothers Taimoor and Rehan Nana, along with their partner and architect Kyle Davis, use their out-of-the-box ingenuity and renovation skills to build amazing living spaces out of totally impossible locations.

Each episode will feature a new group of culinary wunderkinds, along with their overbearing parents, as they prepare recipes, search for inspiration and deal with the pressures of competition. It all leads up to competition day, where three culinary phenoms will go head-to-head in a two-round elimination tournament.

With guidance from relationship expert and certified dating coach, Damona Hoffman, these 'questions of love' give each person the permission to ask questions they may have never asked on their own.

Will these couples succeed or will their so-called simple way of life prove more difficult than they ever imagined?
