Discovery greenlights three home series for HGTV UK

Published

on

By

Discovery UK has commissioned three home improvement-related programs for its HGTV channel.

Anchoring the trio of greenlights is My Mortgage Free Home from Raise the Roof Productions.

The 10 x 60-minute series will spotlight property presenter Amanda Lamb as she helps families who want to move to a mortgage-free home. Lamb will show each family what they could buy if they dumped their mortgage debt by selling their homes and using that equity to buy a mortgage-free home.

Raise the Roof has also been commissioned to produce the 10 x 60-minute Quick Little Builds. Each standalone episode of the series will follow a new family as they set out to build their dream projects. Presenter and architect Gabrielle Omar will follow the action – offering tips and advice – as families design and execute their dream treehouses, home offices, loft conversions and boat and bus builds.

True North Productions, meanwhile, will produce the 16 x 60-minute My Dream Derelict Home in the Sun.

The series will trace property expert Scarlette Douglas (pictured) as she sets out to help Brits determined to acquire their destination dream homes. Douglas will be there every step of the way, walking prospective owners through the renovation and build projects, before revealing whether the buyers have ended up with their dream homes in the sun.

All three series enter into production this month.

My Mortgage Free HomeQuick Little Builds and My Dream Derelict Home in the Sun were ordered by Clare Laycock, SVP and head of lifestyle and entertainment brands at Discovery Networks UK.

Charlotte Reid is head of commissioning and Matt Reid is the commissioning executive for HGTV.

As well, Outline Productions’ Sarah Beeny’s Renovate Don’t Relocate will return to HGTV UK for season three with 15 hour-long episodes.

“Since rebranding Home to HGTV earlier this year, we’ve combined the best British and American home and property shows to inspire viewers to transform their homes,” said Laycock in a statement. “It’s been an exciting six months for the channel with huge gains in audience share fueled by top performing local commissions like Sarah Beeny’s Renovate Don’t Relocate. On the back of this success I’m delighted to announce these new commissions and welcome Amanda Lamb, Scarlette Douglas and Gabrielle Omar to HGTV.”

Emmys 2020: What to expect from host Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel returns to host the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards tonight on ABC

Tonight’s Primetime Emmy Awards will be unlike any of the past 71 ceremonies. The event will be broadcast virtually from the actors’ and actresses’ homes and it will be up to host Jimmy Kimmel to keep things running as smoothly as possible.

The ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic forced the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to adapt. The ceremony was changed from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to a virtual event, following in the footsteps of countless other television shows, business meetings, classrooms, and more that have gone remote over the past six months. Kimmel will be coming to audiences from an empty Staples Center which should make for a unique viewing experience.

Back in June, it was announced that Kimmel would return to host for the third time. Ever the comedian, Kimmel questioned why and how the Emmys would go on but accepted the job nevertheless. The late-night host has also set expectations very low for tonight’s event and is hoping that things go sideways.

What to expect from Jimmy Kimmel at tonight’s Emmy Awards

But if things do get off track, Kimmel is the perfect person to take the wheel. He’s learned his lesson from the Moonlight/La La Land fiasco at the Oscars a few years ago. And for someone who loves pranks, Kimmel should be able to stay calm if everything around him gets confusing.

However, be on the look out for any rust on Kimmel when he hosts tonight. He hasn’t be in front of a camera since June. Kimmel announced the first of his annual summer vacations and left Jimmy Kimmel Live! in the hands of guest hosts. He had found a groove when it came to hosting his show from home before his vacation so here’s hoping he can pick up where he left off, albeit with a potentially much larger audience watching and coming from an empty arena.

Kimmel’s award show monologues are a major reason why this is his third time hosting the Emmys and why he’s also hosted the Oscars twice. It won’t be as easy this time without an audience laughing. It will also be interesting to see if cameras cut to celebrities at home to see their reactions to Kimmel’s punchlines, which again could make for awkward yet entertaining television.

There will be some presenters at the Staples Center with Kimmel which could help take some of the pressure off of him. They may even be able to help him out with a sketch or a bit to break things up and bring something different to the broadcast. Kimmel told Deadline that he wants to lean in to the inherient ridiculousness of tonight’s event and parody some of the traditional award show tropes.

Kimmel may turn to his nemesis Matt Damon for help. The Damon-Kimmel feud has gone beyond just late-night television, invading the World Series and previous Emmy Award ceremonies. While Kimmel will have to get creative tonight, there is nothing wrong with sticking with an old reliable bit that has yet to go stale.

Kimmel will be back hosting his regular late-night show on Monday. Fans will definitely want to tune in not only for his return but for a recap of everything that happens tonight.

Usually, the day after Kimmel hosts an award show is when viewers are treated to a segment from Jimmy Kimmel Live! sidekick Guillermo. But with no red carpet and no backstage scene this year, it could rob fans of “Back-to-Back” or other antics. Be on the look out for how Kimmel uses Guillermo during the Emmys as a possible of hint about what is coming Monday night.

What are your expectations for Jimmy Kimmel tonight? Are you hoping things get off track or are you hoping for a smooth show? Let us know in the comment section below.
