Every once in a while, a new show taps into something we didn’t know we wanted or needed — and then we have to wonder, “Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?”
“We are thrilled to bring this one-of-a-kind series to life and dive into a world that combines America’s two biggest TV obsessions: true crime and home renovation,” said Elyse Seder, senior vice president of alternative and syndicated programming for Sony Pictures Television, in a press release issued to TODAY Home.
The show — coming from "CSI" producer Josh Berman, "Penny Dreadful" producer Chris King and author Katherine Ramsland — will appear on mobile-streaming service Quibi, which launches in April.
So, what can viewers expect from this new home improvement show? A “colorful cast of forensic specialists, spiritual healers and high-end renovation experts,” according to the press release. “(They’ll) uncover the crimes, shocking secrets and scandalous history of the homes.
But, hopefully, as with other home renovation shows, the house will feel brighter and fresher in the end. Berman said the projects will bring “healing and solace to families living in the aftermath of tragic events by transforming dark places into healthy spaces."
Another unique aspect about the show is that it will be released in short-form content, meaning each episode will be much quicker than your average HGTV show (Quibi’s content pieces are expected to be no more than 10 minutes long, each.)
