New York [April 12, 2017] ABC Network's Ginger Zee, best known as the chief meteorologist for Good Morning America, and her husband, NBC and Extra reporter Ben Aaron, tackle their first home renovation in DIY Network's new series Renovation Realities: Ben & Ginger. The four-part series, premiering Saturday, May 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, follows the duo as they ditch cramped city life to renovate a suburban fixer upper into their dream home. With help from their contractors, they gut the house to the studs, remove walls and expand the floor plan. Their friends and family also lend a hand, including Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, Amy Robach and Lara Spencer, who join Ginger's painting party in the series' second episode. Along the way, Ben and Ginger face the unexpected set-backs and surprise expenses of the renovation, such as asbestos removal and unusable original flooring, with a can-do attitude and plenty of humor.

"I don't know how to do any of this stuff," chuckled Ben. "I thought 'escrow' was a soup!"

Throughout the season, Ben and Ginger work side-by-side to transform the old 1,800-square foot house into a three-bedroom, three-bathroom modern family home. They also install features they couldn't get in their small apartment, such as a walk-in closet, a laundry room and mud room. Fun extras include a beautiful outdoor patio with a fireplace and pergola.

"We bought an old house and it needs a lot of work," said Ginger. "I grew up helping my parents with drywall, tiling and painting, so I think we can do a lot of this ourselves to save some money and make the place exactly what we want."
