Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Team up to Flip Houses In New HGTV Series


Cable network HGTV has announced its 2016 programming lineup with 17 premiere series, new episodes of 24 returning popular titles and 14 one-hour specials.

A new series headlined by Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade comes to HGTV. The “Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Project” is what the press release refers to it as, although that may not be the actual title.

In the new series, Union and Wade will begin a passion project – flipping homes. The couple will take audiences along for each episode ride as they renovate, revitalize and resell a home in a suburban Florida neighborhood.

“For three consecutive years, HGTV has delivered consistent ratings growth among P25-54 and kept a solid hold as the #1 network among upscale W25-54,” said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. “HGTV’s programming is successful because our experts are passionate about real estate, home renovation and restoration. They would do this work whether or not cameras were there.”

Other new titles include “Home Town,” a series that stars a couple in Laurel, Miss. who renovate historic houses; “Masters of Flip,” with married home renovators and flippers, Kortney and Dave Wilson, who breathe new life into rundown Nashville homes; and “Vintage Flip,” which showcases Orange County, Calif.’s Jessie and Tina Rodriguez as they renovate vintage homes to include updated features.
