HGTV GREENLIGHTS ITS FIRST AFRICA-BASED SERIES 'RENOVATION WILD'
NEW YORK [June 29, 2022] Thrilling renovations, amazing animal sightings and extraordinary surroundings will captivate fans when HGTV cameras go to Africa in its newly greenlighted series, Renovation Wild. The eight-episode order, slated to premiere in summer 2023, will chronicle safari camp owners Grant and Lynsey Cummings and their children as they take on the uniquely difficult challenges of remodeling dilapidated lodges on their remote Zambia property. Located in a majestic national park, the camp must be built to withstand intense weather and multitudes of astonishing animal visitors.
"Home renovation fans have never seen a construction site quite like the one in Renovation Wild," said Loren Ruch, group senior vice president, programming and development, HGTV. "Despite setbacks and extreme supply-chain issues, which are much more challenging in a faraway location, Grant and Lynsey are determined to beautifully transform the camp and welcome visitors to this incredible place."
Renovation Wild is produced by Remedy Television + Branded LLC.
