Seven New Original Programs Coming to HGTV in 2012

Network to Highlight Additional Series During Upfront Presentations

NEW YORK, March 20, 2012 -- In advance of its first Upfront presentation in Boston, HGTV announced that it has added seven new original series to its 2012 programming lineup, including Mom Caves featuring Beth Stern, aka Mrs. Howard Stern, and Design Star All Stars which pits former HGTV Design Star runners-up against each other for a chance to win $25,000 and a guest appearance on an HGTV show. In another new series, national sports figures will become part of the real estate action in Scoring the Deal. And for those who never tire of seeing how others live, the network's newest entertaining options include Million Dollar Rooms, and House Hunters: Where Are They Now?(w.t.).

"Our continued success with the House Hunters and Selling New York franchises reinforces the universal appeal of programs that provide a look at how other people live," said Kathleen Finch, General Manager, HGTV. "With the addition of series such as Million Dollar Rooms, Living Abroad and Scoring the Deal in 2012, we're giving our viewers exactly what they want -- more extraordinary access into the world's most spectacular homes."

Here is a closer look at HGTV's upcoming series:

Design Makeover

Mom Caves

Premieres: Saturday, May 12 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT

In the new series Mom Caves, Beth Stern, host and owner of her own two mom caves, will incorporate cutting-edge design, fun and glamour into ultimate spaces for moms. Beth, who finds inspiration in such spectacular mom caves as Dina Manzo's New Jersey closet, always creates the ideal sanctuary for a lucky mom. Whether it's a dressing room where mom can get ready for a big night out, or a place where she can kick back and relax with family and friends, a new mom cave is the perfect haven.


Design Star All Stars

Premieres: Tuesday, July 31 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

It's not often that you get a second chance to win first place, but that's exactly what happens on Design Star All Stars. Six former Design Star runners-up compete for an appearance on an HGTV show and $25,000 in cash!

Real Estate and/or Renovation

Buying and Selling (w.t.)

Join the Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott for Buying and Selling (w.t.), an all-new series where the brothers help homeowners take their next step up the property ladder. Each episode features two pivotal real estate moments that involve selling one home and buying another. As Jonathan readies a family's current home for a successful sale, Drew hunts down the best options for their next property. As Drew oversees the real estate transactions, Jonathan's renovations turn the family's new place into the home of their dreams.

Scoring the Deal

Premieres: October 2012

For over a decade, Jason Abrams has been the Jerry Maguire of real estate, responsible for buying and selling homes worth millions of dollars for pro-athletes.
