DIY NETWORK GREENLIGHTS NEW HOME RENOVATION SERIES STARRING NASCAR CHAMPION DALE EARNHARDT JR. AND WIFE AMY
New York [May 9, 2017] DIY Network has greenlighted a new home renovation series featuring third-generation NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his wife Amy Earnhardt. The series will follow Dale and Amy as they transform a dilapidated historic home into a gorgeous modern retreat in the Old Town historic district of Key West, Florida. Premiering in early 2018, the four half-hour episodes will combine Dale's love of home improvement with Amy's interior design expertise.
"Amy and I are excited to take on our first home renovation project together," said Dale Jr. "Amy is a fantastic designer. She has creative ideas and a strong work ethic. We love DIY projects around the house, and so I expect this to be challenging but fun."
To create their dream seaside home, the couple must first tackle the renovation challenges that often come with older homes, including structural damage, faulty plumbing and ancient wiring.
"We've seen how Dale Jr. races a car, so we're confident that with Amy's help he will easily navigate the typical trials and tribulations of a home renovation," said John Feld, senior vice president, original programming and production, HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. "Fasten your seat belts because this one is sure to be a thrilling, unpredictable ride."
