HGTV's Holmes on Homes follows contractor Mike Holmes as he uncovers shoddy construction practices, improper techniques and downright rip-offs in this home improvement series. In each episode, Mike rescues homeowners from repair and renovation disasters ranging from plumbing problems and electrical issues to bad carpentry and faulty roofing. He then demonstrates how the botched job should have been completed, fixes each project and educates homeowners so that they are more informed before their next home improvement projects.

The Antonio Treatment

Antonio Ballatore, season four champion of HGTV Design Star, unabashedly returns to the network with his unique and unapologetic design style in his own show, The Antonio Treatment. During the series, Antonio and his crew of unconventional craftsmen transform lackluster homes, offices, restaurants, stores, recording studios and more into radically original-yet functional-custom creations.

Tough as Nails

Premieres Thursday, March 18, at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT

The new weekly docu-drama Tough as Nails follows successful Boston developer Cindy Stumpo as she juggles the demands of running her booming construction business and living her family life. Known for building high-end, multimillion-dollar luxury homes, Cindy is a self-made, independent businesswoman who has made a name for herself during her 21-year career by being tough as nails in a male-dominated industry. Even as the construction crew balks at Cindy's demands, she makes it clear that she has the final say because at the end of the day it's her name that is on the line.

Home Rules

Premieres Monday, March 15, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

In each episode of HGTV's Home Rules, life coach and former WNBA player Fran Harris will explore why a frazzled family is struggling to find harmony at home. After assessing the issue, Fran will help the family establish rules to help ease the pandemonium, and a designer will help create a well-designed space that enhances the family's life. One month later, Fran will return with the cameras to find out how life has changed for the family in their new space.

Marriage Under Construction

Premieres Tuesday, March 16, at 11 p.m. ET/PT

Elation, frustration and exhaustion are common emotions for first-time homebuyers, but the roller coaster ride of homeownership doesn't end when the deal is done. In the new weekly series Marriage Under Construction, HGTV will follow the lives of newlyweds Natalie and Rod as they purchase, renovate and decorate their first home. With the aid of an expert foreman and an aspiring designer, the couple will delve into the process of transforming a new house into a home as they adjust to their new marriage and manage their household budget.

My First Sale

Premieres Thursday, March 18 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT

Each episode of HGTV's My First Sale follows the story of a different first-time home-seller as he or she face the frustrations of a challenging real estate market. The pressure to sell a home with high financial and emotional stakes involved, including lower home values and a lack of available buyers, means homeowners have more to gain-or lose-when navigating the complicated world of real estate sales. During the series, viewers will get valuable takeaway information and expert advice to help demystify the home sales process.

Selling New York

Premieres Thursday, March 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

HGTV gives viewers a rare glimpse inside the high stakes world of buying and selling luxury Manhattan properties in the new weekly series, Selling NY. During the series, cameras follow a colorful group of assertive, razor-sharp brokers from two upscale boutique real estate firms, The Core Group and the Kleier family of Gumley Haft Kleier. These Realtors will do whatever it takes to sell a property, from scheduling photo shoots and last-minute open houses to pampering a potential buyer with an excursion to New York Fashion Week and planning lavish cocktail parties at new property listings.

Destination Design

Premieres Saturday, March 6, at 1:30 p.m. ET/PT

In HGTV's Destination Design, designer Taniya Nayak helps homeowners who love to travel but seem to miss the boat on good design. In each episode, Taniya visits the home and interprets the homeowners' personal style. She uncovers information about the places that make them feel peaceful, relaxed and content. Taniya will then send them on an all-expense-paid luxury vacation to discover colors, textures, images and moments that will inspire them. Upon their return, Taniya will formulate a design plan based on the homeowners' photos, experiences and inspirational souvenirs and then transform the neglected room into the perfect one-of-a-kind space.
