TRAINING SPACES will be released on TLC GO Spring, 2018 and is presented by Lowe's.
"We are thrilled to welcome back TRADING SPACES with a brand new multi-platform content experience," said Scott Lewers, Senior vice President of Multi-Platform Programming and Digital Content at TLC. "TRAINING SPACES will give fans a unique introduction to the talented designers and carpenters we're adding to the roster of one of our most classic series."
The three new designers, John Gidding, Kahi Lee and Sabrina Soto will complete five design challenges to ensure they are ready to join the TRADING SPACES team. The tasks will not only test their design skills, but also how well they can work under extreme time constraints while flexing their creative muscles. With a limited amount of time to complete their design masterpiece, the rookies will be racing against the clock. In addition, new carpenters, Brett Tutor and Joanie Dodd's assignment will be to build something unexpected in a short amount of time. Will the new designers and carpenters be up for the challenge?
