"BUILDING BELUSHI" NEWEST SERIES TO EXPAND DIY NETWORK'S CELEBRITY RENOVATION PORTFOLIO

New York [FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 20, 2015] Performer, actor, comedian and musician Jim Belushi, who recently reprised the legendary Blues Brothers routine with Dan Aykroyd on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special, is coming to DIY Network in Building Belushi. The network has started production on the six-episode series that will follow Jim and his team of experts as they build a riverfront retreat cabin in Eagle Point, Oregon. After starring roles in films, on Broadway, touring the country with his improv comedy troupe The Board of Comedy and his bands The Sacred Hearts and The Blues Brothers, and on the long-running television series According to Jim, Belushi says he is looking forward to unwinding on the river with friends and family. Jim is a home-renovation enthusiast and he's ready for this challenge on the Rogue River.

"After all these years in show business, it's time for me to build something new of my own," said Jim. "This place is miles away from show business, but it's still going to be all Belushi - raising the roof, raising hell and going rogue on the Rogue River."

After purchasing 13 acres of a former 1930s Elks picnic ground, Jim and his team begin the process of constructing the ultimate retreat cabin. In each episode, Jim learns to craft his vision to fit within the nature of the river country life, including the often unpredictable realities and set-backs of home building and renovation.
