NBC TAKES ON ‘RENOVATION NATION,’ AN AMBITIOUS HOME MAKEOVER COMPETITION SHOW TO BE HOSTED BY FAMED INTERIOR AND PRODUCT DESIGNER NATE BERKUS
The Ten-Episode Series Will Feature The Most Talented Home Builders And Designers Competing For A Huge Cash Prize and to Be Crowned The Winner of “Renovation Nation”
America Votes for Final Winner in Stunning Live Finale, During Which Two Lucky Viewers Will Be Awarded Keys To Two Life-Changing Dream Homes
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – March 11, 2013 – NBC will begin production on “Renovation Nation,” an exciting, new home makeover competition event that will showcase the talents of the most accomplished designers and home renovators in the country, revealing stunning transformations week after week. Nate Berkus, host and Executive Producer, will not only guide the audience through the process, but will also serve as judge and advocate, mentoring the contestants week to week.
This bold new series will travel across the country one city at a time, with two separate teams tackling two new homes each week. The series will conclude in a dramatic live finale where America will vote to determine the winner and two dream homes will be given away to two lucky viewers.
The announcement was made today by Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment.
“We are delighted to work with the incredibly talented Nate Berkus, whose expertise, creativity and passion for design are unparalleled in scope” said Telegdy. “We believe we are in a time where Americans want to feel empowered and inspired to make changes to their homes; changes that will not only increase their value and quality of life but at the same time - not break the bank. Our goal is to showcase incredibly diverse architecture, impeccable design and epic transformations unlike anything you’ve seen before.”
In every episode, Berkus will present the contestants with extensive design and build challenges; crafted specifically to push the creative reach of each contestant. They'll take on a wide range of home styles and spaces, facing off to create the ultimate home transformation.
"I'm beyond excited about the fresh approach we're taking with this show. The challenges we have created are so visual, layered and unique - that even I have to admit I'm jealous I'm not competing," shares Berkus.
The contestants will be evaluated by Berkus and his team of experts to determine which team did the best. The winning team will be safe from elimination and the losing team will have to choose who to send home. Viewers will be able to tour the homes virtually and purchase specific items that are featured in that episode. In addition, weekly prizes will also be given away to viewers, ranging from luxury household items to home makeovers, and cold hard cash. The series will culminate in the live finale where the two final contestants will each pull off a complete home rebuild and design on their own -- implementing their own unique visions for a spectacular dream home. America will vote for the winner and those same two homes will then be given away to two fortunate viewers at the end of the live finale.
“Renovation Nation” is produced by Universal Television. Craig Plestis (“Minute to Win It”), Tom Shelly (“Love in the Wild,” “Survivor”) and Berkus are executive producers.

Reliability: Contractors have a bad reputation for not showing up on time, giving you a low cost estimate and then increasing your price as your project continues, and of course, not finishing when promised. Unfortunate as it is to say, these simple acts are what set Bohler Builders Group apart.
Simply put, we show up when we promise. We give you an accurate estimate and try to finish under-budget. And we will give you the “worst-case” scenario for a completion date instead of the fastest time, in the hope that we’ll hear you say, “Wow! You finished early!”
Experience: Bohler Builders Group (BBG) has accomplished the impossible: the construction of large homes and commercial buildings within a 7-day time frame. BBG was founded by the general contractor behind ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - the television phenomenon that has been called the Super Bowl of homebuilding. Let Bohler Builders Group tackle your project.
Quality Craftsmanship: David Bohler is proud of his work and enjoys what he does. He will not put his name on something unless it is of sound quality. These are characteristics of someone who works hard to create a beautiful room addition or bathroom remodel you too can be proud of.
