In "Drill Team," a team of experts battle the clock to help a desperate homeowner get their renovation project done in time for a big event. Each week "Drill Team" restores the calm after natural disasters and nightmare renovations. With a real deadline only days away, carpenters Jeff Devlin and Brandon Russell along with designer Lauren Makk help save the day for a desperate homeowner. Whether it's picking up the pieces and rebuilding after a tragedy like a fire or flood, or tackling a renovation that's gotten out of hand, the Drill Team transforms unbearable situations into unbelievable realities in each one hour episode.

Jeff Devlin was most recently seen as co-host and resident carpenter of "Spice Up My Kitchen." He got his start as an apprentice for a historic home remodeler where he honed his skills and fostered a blooming passion for designing, creating and building. Fellow carpenter and former model, Brandon Russell signed-on as lead carpenter on the hit show "Trading Spaces" in 2007 where he was able to combine his celebrity looks with his abilities to create and build just about anything. A "Trading Spaces" veteran designer, Lauren Makk brings her hip-hop meets glamour design sensibilities to "Drill Team."

"Drill Team" is produced for A&E Network by Nancy Glass Productions. Executive producers are Nancy Glass, Holly Vogler and Katie Sullivan. Robert Sharenow and Andy Berg are executive producers for A&E.

Leslie Segrete's home improvement skills span radio, television and print. For the past six years, Leslie has worked hard making design dreams into reality as a carpenter and designer for series "Trading Spaces" and "While You Were Out." Rib Hillis is most notably known for his role in changing the lives of one deserving family a week as part of the design team on the Emmy Award-winning "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
