Eight-episode unscripted competition series ”Home Free” premiers Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015, 9p et/pt on Fox
HOLLYWOOD, CA(Hollywood Daily Star) 2015/7/22 – “A home is way more than brick and mortar,” says Home Free host Mike Holmes. “So being part of this new series and partnering with Fox is truly exciting for me. I’m ready to break ground with these couples. It’s going to be a lot of sweat and tears but I promise you, all worth it in the end…trust me on this.”
“We’re thrilled to have host Mike Holmes, the most legit name in renovation,” says producer and Relativity Television CEO Tom Forman (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition). “He’s going to inspire our contestants, but also push them to the limit…and that’s a great thing. I’ve done some big shows, but this is the biggest, complete with all sorts of twists and turns you’ll have to watch to believe. We can’t wait to get renovating.”
Nine deserving couples are challenged to revive one run-down home every week. Each week Holmes gives the couples design challenges to test their do-it-yourself skills. After each show the contestable live together in the houses they all just worked on. In the end the couples are competing to win their own dream home.
Each week, the couples with the best work will move forward in the competition, while the couple who didn’t perform up to code will face elimination. Eliminations will continue each week, until only two couples remain, who will fight to the finish to win their ultimate dream home.
Holmes is the host and creator of the hit TV series Holmes on Homes, Holmes Inspection and Holmes Makes It Right he’s a professional contractor working in the industry for over 30 years experience as a licensed contractor.
