Disney’s ABC plans to revive “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, which originally ran on ABC between 2004 and 2012, before moving over to HGTV. The series was a spin-off of the popular show “Extreme Makeover”.
The new series will be developed by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, who created the global lifestyle brand The Home Edit and have also recently worked on the Netflix series, “Get Organized”.
In each episode, Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin will meet a deserving family in need of a new home or a major renovation. A team of builders, contractors, and design experts will assist them on each big makeover project, ultimately transforming the home based on the family’s lifestyle and needs. The pair will lean into their organizing expertise and work with each family to edit every single item they own, deciding what to part ways with and what to keep that will set their new home up with smart systems built for success.
According to Deadline, the series is produced by Endemol Shine North America and Hello Sunshine in association with Walt Disney Television Alternative. Shyam Balsé, who has executive produced series including “MasterChef”, serves as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, Michael Heyerman from Endemol Shine North America and Reese Witherspoon, Sara Rea, Cassie Lambert Scalettar from Hello Sunshine as well as Molly Sims.
