This is the incredible renovation completed in A Very Brady Renovation which goes to air today in the US on HGTV.
The short-run series by the lifestyle cable channel sees the 6 original ‘Brady kids’ renovating the actual house used for exteriors, to replicate the TV interior. The house is often described as the most famous house in the US after the White House. Duh.
They guest across the series, hosted by The Property Brothers with other HGTV personalities. Having all 6 actors is a major coup -normally at least one holds out.
The reno involved adding a second level for the kids’ bedrooms (Greg doesn’t get an attic, but I think he has a basement) and I’m hoping there is astroturf in the backyard. HGTV has now decided to hold onto the house for channel events and is even giving away contest prizes for fans to sleep over. Jealous!
But so far this is yet to be picked up by Australian networks, despite all the lifestyle channels we have and that property renovation is clearly big.
Ardent Brady fans are not happy about that and Jane Kennedy is campaigning for its inclusion via her Triple M radio show.
There are a bunch of promo clips on YouTube, but it’s up to a very Brady TV exec to make this happen on air.
UPDATE: Just heard insider info that the show is finalising details for an Aussie screening. Stay tuned.
