The network is looking for towns and people inspired by the work Ben and Erin Napier did in Wetumpka.


If you were inspired by Home Town Takeover, HGTV wants to hear from you.

According to an Instagram story shared by HGTV on Tuesday, the network is looking for "towns and community leaders across America" that were motivated by Erin and Ben Napier's work to revitalize Wetumpka, Alabama.  

In a broad casting call, HGTV revealed they want to hear from a wide variety of people. Whether Home Town Takeover inspired you to volunteer, start your own business, put up a mural, or paint your front door, you could be exactly what the network is looking for.

What could they be up to, we wonder?

In the record-breaking Home Town spin-off, the Napiers worked their magic on 12 renovation projects throughout the small Alabama town, including the house made famous by the 2003 Tim Burton movie, Big Fish. Thanks to the couple, Wetumpka is in the midst of an unprecedented tourism boom.

Shellie Whitfield, the owner of the Big Fish House and the executive director of the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce, recently spoke to about the impact Home Town Takeover had on her town. Whitfield said what the Napiers did was about much more than renovation—they helped build back a community.

"Ben and Erin don't want everyone to move to Laurel, and we don't want everyone to move to Wetumpka," she told "We need people to come together and build community where they're at."

If you feel similarly and have something to show for it, you might be the right fit for HGTV's mysterious new project. For more information, email
