The famous The Brady Bunch siblings are back and have teamed up with HGTV all-stars to renovate and create a meticulous replication of the Brady Bunch home. Fans have passionately followed the journey, and now, HGTV is set to unveil the astonishing transformation in this highly anticipated series, A Very Brady Renovation.
The Brady Bunch sitcom was a series that revolved around a large blended family with six children; after only airing on ABC for five seasons, it has become one of the quintessential all-American sitcoms ever made. This iconic show, which aired from 1969 to 1974, is getting a reboot, so to speak, by HGTV, but this time as a renovation show. The show won't revolve around the characters, but more the set. HGTV purchased the world-famous North Hollywood house in 2018 and has taken on a monumental renovation of making it a replica of the original TV home from The Brady Bunch.
HGTV has brought together the six Brady Bunch siblings - Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), and Susan Olsen (Cindy). The original cast is teamed up with HGTV’s biggest renovation star experts: Property Brothers' Jonathan and Drew Scot, Good Bones stars Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E Laine, Restored by the Fords' Leanne and Steve Ford, Hidden Potential's Jasmine Roth, and Flea Market Flip's Lara Spencer to execute a nostalgic home renovation. HGTV president, Jane Latman spoke of what fans can expect from the revolutionary show, saying:
"A Very Brady Renovation is the programming event of the year that Brady Bunch and HGTV superfans have been waiting for ... HGTV left no stone unturned, creating a perfect replica of the home down to the horse statue next to the staircase and the stuffed animal giraffe in the girls’ bedroom. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats each week to see how we pulled it all off, and we can promise they’ll be transported back in time when they see the final result.”
After their initial tour of the house, which looks nothing like the original studio set, the Brady Bunch cast and HGTV stars wasted no time starting the renovation and replication. HGTV cameras captured more than 9,000 hours of the demo, renovation and painstaking replication of the Brady Bunch house. The show documents the stars dividing and conquering the house, with each Brady sibling teaming up with a celebrity renovator duo. In the renovation process, the crew added over 2,000 square feet to the original footprint of the North Hollywood house, without compromising its iconic street view. The show crowdsourced vintage furniture and decor true from the 1960s and '70s. Some of the featured items were high-demand items such as the living room couch and credenza, Greg’s attic radio, the front door handles, and several of the home’s legendary knickknacks.
During production, there was so much footage that the series will kick off with an extended 90-minute blockbuster premiere episode on September 9. This fun and an iconic new take on the original Brady Bunch will be a perfect mashup for both The Brady Bunch and HGTV super-fans. Seeing the familiar faces working together in such a unique premise for a renovation show will surely be a nostalgic trip down memory lane as viewers sit around the TV watching The Brady Bunch.
