New HGTV show “Fixer Upper” in the making

Fixer Upper: A new HGTV home renovation show to be hitting television in the coming months. Its pilot episode received an overwhelming positive response, giving producers the go ahead to develop the idea into a series. The show will follow "one couple’s business of turning dilapidated and outdated houses into houses of value."

Magnolia Homes is a one-stop-shop

The couple is based in Waco, TX and after the response to their first episode, they are going on to make at least 12 more. Their names are Chip and Joanna Gaines, and they both graduated from Baylor in 2003. Now, four children later, they’ve decided to open a business called Magnolia Homes which will offer "remodeling, design, new construction, and real estate services." It’s basically a homeowner or prospective homeowner’s one-stop shop.

Casting call for Texas

The challenge the couple faces in each episode is fixing up their "fixer upper" within one month. They will be considering homes in Dallas, Fort Worth, Waco, Austin, and San Antonio, Texas. Over the next few months there will be a casting call for people interested in buying the fixed up houses. Filming will take place August through March of 2013 and 2014.

Joanna also keeps up a blog which she posts to frequently. A recent post said, "All I know is that it is going to be exciting, crazy, and an adventure like no other. We are going to need a lot of prayer as we juggle our family, our business, and the show for the next few months."
