TLC Puts The Real Back Into Real Estate

New Series HOPE FOR YOUR HOME and OVER DESIGNED premiere this summer as part of the network's popular home block

LOS ANGELES, July 10 -- TLC today announced that it will premiere two new series that will update the very popular property and decorating genres to reflect the changing real estate market, and the economy at large. Joining its successful Saturday night home-themed programming will be HOPE FOR YOUR HOME, which helps homeowners find solutions to their real-life mortgage challenges, and the decorating series OVER DESIGNED, which celebrates people 'nesting' and making the home the ultimate in self-expression. Both of these series are reflections of the modern viewer who is looking to make the most out of their property investment, and they expand on TLC's commitment to share authentic, real-life situations.

"These series are a great compliment to our current lineup of home-focused programs. They reflect both the concerns and aspirations of our audience, while building on our brand of relatable, non-scripted programming," explained Eric Black, Director of Programming, TLC.

About TLC's new home series:

HOPE FOR YOUR HOME (working title)

Series premieres Saturday August 9 at 8:30PM ET/PT HOPE FOR YOUR HOME takes on the tough circumstances so many homeowners in this country are facing today. Hosted by real estate expert Kirsten Kemp Becker (TLC's PROPERTY LADDER), HOPE FOR YOUR HOME lends a hand to homeowners in financial need, by giving them critical resources to make improvements to their property. The goal is to add enough value to their home so they can either refinance their mortgage or make the best possible sale. Kirsten advises the homeowners on what improvements will actually increase a home's value, while a contractor ensures that all projects are done properly and safely. Once the improvements are complete, a real estate agent and a mortgage broker tour the home, examine the upgrades, and determine a market value. In the end, the homeowners are empowered to decide if they should stay in their newly renovated home, or sell their home and find something more affordable for their family. Series is produced by Actual Reality; Executive Producer is R.J. Cutler.

OVER DESIGNED

Series premiere TBD

OVER DESIGNED, hosted by design expert Kenneth Brown, checks in with one person with unique style, ranging from creative collections that can't be contained to an obsession with a outrageous motif. During each episode, Kenneth, with the help from family and friends they will turn these rooms into inviting and livable spaces for the whole family to enjoy, while continuing to honor the nominee's passions. Series is produced by Discovery Studios; Executive Producers are Nancy Daniels and Joan O'Conner.
