MARK BALLAS AND DEREK HOUGH TACKLE THEIR FIRST HOUSE FLIP IN HGTV'S "MARK & DEREK'S EXCELLENT FLIP"

HGTV series premieres Tuesday, April 28, at 11 p.m. ET/PT

New York [For Immediate Release - March 24, 2015] Derek Hough and Mark Ballas of ABC's Dancing with the Stars will choreograph a whole new move in their latest project - to renovate and flip a house in HGTV's Mark & Derek's Excellent Flip. Premiering Tuesday, April 28, at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, the four-episode series will follow the multi-talented entertainers and first-time house flippers as they and their team of experts transform an outdated Los Angeles-area home into one of the best homes on the block.

"We're taking on our very first house flip together," said Mark. "And we've only given ourselves four weeks to complete it before the open house."

"This is a huge financial investment for us and we are on a budget," added Derek. "It's a big risk - and we may not always agree on every design detail - but it's a risk worth taking, worth putting our blood, sweat and money into to get the job done right."

From demolition to design, Hough and Ballas will play an active role on the work site as they help renovate and prep the home to sell in the ultra-competitive L.A. real estate market. In the premiere episode, the duo will knock down walls to create a gorgeous great room that combines the kitchen, family room and dining room. The series will follow the guys' progress as they tackle the home's crumbling exterior and overgrown landscape, gut the master bathroom and update the bedrooms with new windows and floors.

"Our audience loves watching celebrities take on home renovation projects," said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV and DIY Network. "They relate to all the highs and lows they've experienced in their own renovations and appreciate getting to peek into another side of life for the celebs they already know and love."

About Derek Hough

Derek Hough, an Emmy Award winning choreographer and the winningest champion in franchise history of the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars, started dancing in his hometown of Salt Lake City, UT, at age 11. Just one year later, he moved to London to live and train with the top dance coaches in the world and attend performing arts school where he studied theatre, music and dance. During his time in London, Hough performed in London's West End where he starred as the male lead in the stage version of Footloose. With celebrity partners on Dancing with the Stars that have included Brooke Burke, Ricki Lake, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Kellie Pickler, Amber Riley and Amy Purdy, Hough's innovative and daring choreography has garnered him a total of five Emmy Nominations. In 2013, he paired with World Champion Ice Dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White to choreograph their Short Program for the 2014 Winter Olympics. In Sochi, Russia, the duo was awarded the Gold Medal after performing that routine to record setting scores and rave reviews. With his sister Julianne, Hough heads on tour again this summer in their co-created MOVE Live on Tour. Hough's memoir, Taking the Lead; Lessons from a Life in Motion, was a New York Times Best-Seller.
