"Woslum Family" - When Trent Woslum, a sergeant in the California National Guard, was finally able to buy his family their first fixer-upper home as a Christmas present in 2002, little did he know that by Valentine's Day he would have to leave the house, his wife and three sons behind to serve a tour of duty in Iraq. The mission facing the "EM: HE" team: A complete renovation of the Palmdale, California home and to bring Dad home for an emotional reunion, on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," TUESDAY, AUGUST 24 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 2/15/04)
Unbeknownst to wife Dawna and the three sons - Steven, 12, Nicholas, 7, and Alex, 5 -- who were sent on vacation to Disneyland for seven days while the house was being transformed, Trent returned home from Iraq. During that time, the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team of designers, 100 workmen and countless helpful neighbors, totally renovated their entire house - every single room, plus the exterior and landscaping.
In addition, when the design team learns from Trent that young Nicholas is an avid baseball fan, LA Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda and players Shawn Green and Dave Roberts participate in another incredible surprise for The Woslum Family.
The "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" design team features Ty Pennington, Paul DiMeo, Tracy Hutson, Michael Moloney, Constance Ramos and Preston Sharp.
"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. The series is executive produced by Tom Forman and Craig Armstrong.
