CONTRACTOR MIKE HOLMES BRINGS DAUGHTER SHERRY AND SON MIKE JR.
ON THE JOB IN DIY NETWORK'S 'HOLMES: NEXT GENERATION'
New York [April 2, 2018] It's a family affair for popular contractor Mike Holmes in his new DIY Network series Holmes: Next Generation. Premiering Tuesday, April 17, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the six-episode series will follow Mike as he teams up with his daughter Sherry and son Mike Jr., who also are home renovation experts, to rescue homeowners from do-it-yourself projects gone wrong. Armed with their dad's strong work ethic, blunt construction advice and on-site manpower, Sherry and Mike Jr. will take the lead to fix dysfunctional renovation projects and create family dream homes.
"I've been making it right for homeowners for over 35 years," said Mike. "Now it's time for the next generation of Holmes to step up. But it's not easy living up to my standards."
"Dad likes things his way," added Sherry. "But we're getting him to consider our point of view and new ideas that he would never normally choose."
In the premiere episode, Mike, Sherry and Mike Jr. will help a homeowner finish the incomplete improvement projects started by her late husband. After repairing the damaged roof and cracked foundation, the trio will give the property a major refresh with a modern kitchen, new hardwood flooring and a bright, open staircase.
"We're going to help this deserving homeowner get some peace of mind," said Mike Jr. "This will be a great fresh start for her."
