HGTV rebuilds Home Town

Home Town hosts Ben and Erin Napier

Discovery-owned home and lifestyle cablenet HGTV has greenlit an event series spin-off to its Home Town franchise.

Home Town Rescue (working title) is hosted by husband and wife duo Ben and Erin Napier as they join forces with members of a local town to renovate and restore the entire community including individual homes, parks, public spaces and recreation centres.

The six parter is set to premiere on HGTV in 2021.

The Napiers, who currently star in the network’s hit series Home Town, previously helped rebuild their own town of Laurel, Mississippi – inspiring the population to transform the town’s empty storefronts and houses that were in disrepair into a thriving destination for tourists and locals.

Home Town premiered on the network in 2017 and has since aired four seasons produced by RTR Media. The new season is due to premiere on January 20 next year.

Betsy Ayala, senior VP of programming and development for HGTV, said: “We’ve seen how Ben and Erin put their heart and soul into every incredible renovation. It’s time for another town to benefit from their experience and expertise. This time, a different community will see their hometown restored to its former glory.”
