TLC PUTS A HUNKY SPIN ON HOME IMPROVEMENT WITH NEW SPECIAL: "HONEY DO"
-- NEW DATE: Premieres with back-to-back episodes June 17--
(Los Angeles, CA.) TLC helps couples across America with HONEY DO, a new two-part special featuring a dream team of handy men that come to the aid of one wife to tackle all of the unfinished home improvement projects her husband has beenignoring. HONEY DO premieres with back-to-back episodes on Monday, June 17 at 10 PM (ET/PT).
In each 30-minute episode, viewers are introduced to a wife with a totally relatable problem - she's got a "honey do" list a mile long and her husband doesn't know where to begin. That's where our four hunky carpenters come in. Jonathan "the foreman", Kevin "the construction man", Ben "the painter" and Dan "the handyman" bring their tools and talents to fix what these husbands haven't. From painting the dining room and finishing the deck to snaking the toilet and swapping old can lights for a chandelier, no honey do project is too big for these guys. In the midst of all of the breaking and building, the wife gets to kick up her feet and enjoy the pampered life, while the husband learns what it takes to be Mr. Fix it. He'll get down, dirty and do his best to dig his way out of the doghouse, because he knows a happy wife also means a honey do list-free life.
MEET VERONICA AND MICHAEL
Premieres June 17 at 10 PM (ET/PT)
Veronica has tried everything, including posting florescent orange stickers all over the house, to get her husband Michael to tend to the "honey do" list. Unfortunately for her, this is one musician whose drum sticks are the only tool he is familiar with and has no idea how to fix anything in the house. With a patio that is used as a storage space instead of an actual patio and a fireplace screaming the 70s, the guys step in to whip both Veronica's home and her husband into shape.
MEET JULIE AND ADRIAN
Premieres June 17 at 10:30 PM (ET/PT)
Julie has reminded her husband, Adrian, a million times to fix the same things, but to no avail. From the "eye-sore" of a play set in the backyard, to the sheet that has hung over their bedroom window for over 10 years, to the hoarded garage chock-full of old belongings - he just never seems to "get to it." With a lengthy list and a husband who isn't in a rush to take care of it, Julie calls in four hunky reinforcements to get the work done for her while teaching her husband a thing or two about handy work.
