ADDITIONAL NOTES: a show on hiatus for longer than 12 months - without any news about its future - is assumed to be canceled
DESCRIPTION: (from TLC's web site, September 2009) Enter Lisa Lynch! She is an expert in "home staging," the popular practice of transforming the appearance of a home to broaden its appeal to prospective buyers. But Lisa is turning the home-staging industry on its ear! Stager Invasion is a half-hour show inspired by Lisa Lynch's unique twist on traditional home staging. In only eight hours, Lisa and a massive army of home stagers will take over a single property and create an entirely new look. They'll primarily use the homeowners' existing furniture and spend no more than $1,000! Time is of the essence in Lisa's pressure-cooker workday. There is no room for slackers, and every week Lisa pushes her team to accomplish the impossible for a homeowner in need. Each home poses its own unique challenges, as Lisa and her stagers must paint, patch, fix, redesign, reconfigure and beautify a home in pursuit of a new "buyer-friendly" property. Lisa and her army of stagers know the secrets to getting your house sold. Every transformation is dramatic, and viewers will marvel at the befores and afters. Tune in to find out if Lisa's one-of-a-kind method helped these desperate homeowners finally sell their homes.
