Flip or Flop Spin-Offs Planned for These 3 Southern Cities
And the South-ification of our favorite channel continues!
Adios California, HGTV's Flip or Flop is moving on to bigger, better, (and more Southern) cities.
After the wild success of Tarek and Christina El Moussa's long-running home renovation show, the network has decided to franchise out the series with five new duos and titles set in cities across the United States. HGTV recently announced that the new shows would take place in Nashville, Atlanta, Fort Worth, Chicago, and Las Vegas.
"The tremendous, consistent ratings success of the original Flip or Flop with Tarek and Christina El Moussa inspired us to take a new look at house flipping programming," Scripps' U.S. programming and development GM, Allison Page, said in a statement. "We saw an opportunity to highlight what works in other regions by featuring successful couples that had mastered the art of flipping in their town."
So what exactly can we expect from our new favorite shows? In Atlanta, the yet-to-be-named project follows reno experts Ken and Anita Corsini as they update old Southern houses into modern homes that retain their original charm. To the west, the Fort Worth series stars flippers Andy and Ashley Williams, military veterans turned real estate investors, who buy, rehab and sell run-down houses all over the Lone Star state. And last but not least, in Nashville, real estate expert Page Turner and her ex—former NFL player and builder DeRon Jenkins—work together to transform outdated properties into beautiful family homes.
