CARMEON HAMILTON FROM MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE WINS “DESIGN STAR: NEXT GEN,” $50,000 AND HER OWN discovery+ SERIES

(New York, N.Y.) – Carmeon Hamilton, 35, an interior designer from Memphis, Tennessee, has been crowned the winner of Design Star: Next Gen, the high-stakes, edge-of-your-seat competition series inspired by HGTV Design Star. During the 90-minute finale, which premiered Wednesday, March 31, on discovery+, host Allison Holker Boss, head judge Jonathan Adler, judge Lauren Makk and guest judge Jonathan Scott, co-star of Property Brothers: Forever Home, delivered the life-changing news to Carmeon.

“Throughout this competition, I created spaces that were more and more ‘me.’ I laid it all out on the table here,” said Carmeon, as she reflected on the competition midway through the finale episode. Later, she was overjoyed to hear that her authentic approach worked. “Is this real? I just won $50,000 and my own show. I am the next Design Star!”

The judges gave high praise to Carmeon, noting her sophisticated use of materials and keen ability to elevate her creations by breaking design rules. She also clearly expressed her specific design narrative and personal brand through her ‘modern Bohemian’ design style, which notably impressed the judges. For example, in the final episode, Carmeon beautifully executed a living room and bedroom design inspired by her family’s dream of living in Ghana.

“Carmeon delivered great work in every challenge,” said head judge Jonathan Adler. “Design Star: Next Gen wasn’t just about finding the best designer. The winner also needed the ability to build a worldwide signature brand.”

The six-episode series, which was shot in an isolated, customized “design hub” community built especially for the Design Star: Next Gen production in Southern California, featured eight gifted designers as they competed in intense weekly challenges. Throughout the season, superstar industry luminaries, as well as passionate design/competition enthusiasts, including Jasmine Roth, star of HGTV’s Help! I Wrecked My House; Kim Myles, winner of HGTV Design Star season two; dancer and TV personality Stephen “tWitch” Boss; award-winning designer Karim Rashid, noted for his work with global luxury brands; artist and floral designer Maurice Harris, known for his work with world-famous labels and actress and design enthusiast Tia Mowry-Hardrict, evaluated work of the competitors.

“Carmeon is an incredibly talented designer whose creativity and heart were on full display in Design Star: Next Gen,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “Plus, in an age driven by clicks, likes, downloads and views, she already has a strong social media presence with thousands of followers and that puts her in an excellent position to inspire and motivate new audiences to follow her on-air, by streams and via her social media platforms. We’ve got a winner.”

HGTV Brings Ben and Erin Napier to Wetumpka, Alabama for a Spectacular Whole-Town Makeover





HGTV Brings Ben and Erin Napier to Wetumpka, Alabama for a Spectacular Whole-Town Makeover in “Home Town Takeover”
The six-episode event series premieres Sunday, May 2 at 8:00/7:00c and also available to stream on discovery+ beginning May 2.
[via press release from HGTV]
HGTV BRINGS BEN AND ERIN NAPIER TO WETUMPKA, ALABAMA FOR A SPECTACULAR WHOLE-TOWN MAKEOVER IN “HOME TOWN TAKEOVER”

Net’s Newest Event Series Premieres on HGTV and discovery+ Sunday, May 2, with Guest Appearances by Sheryl Crow, Eddie Jackson, Randy Fenoli and Loads of HGTV Stars

New York [March 31, 2021] For five years, HGTV superstars Ben and Erin Napier of Home Town have been using their heart, creativity, design and building skills to renovate, restore and uplift scores of historic homes and businesses in the small town of Laurel, Mississippi. Now, in the new six-episode event series Home Town Takeover, premiering Sunday, May 2, at 8 p.m. ET/PT and also available to stream on discovery+ beginning May 2, it will take every hand and hammer as HGTV takes Ben and Erin’s favorite phrase, “make something good today,” into the stratosphere with the whole-town makeover of Wetumpka, Alabama. The series will showcase 12 major renovations all over Wetumpka, including restaurants, shops, historic homes, public spaces, a new farmers’ market – and even an entire downtown street – with the goal that the impact will ripple through the community for generations to come. As a special preview, the second episode of Home Town Takeover also will be available to stream on discovery+ beginning May 2. More new episodes will launch early each Sunday on the streaming platform.

Home Town Takeover will feature celebrity guests who lend their talents to the town’s overhaul. These include: Grammy Award(R) winning, music megastar Sheryl Crow who will dazzle fans with an intimate main street concert; Eddie Jackson (Food Network and Cooking Channel Host); Randy Fenoli (TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress); popular HGTV stars Tamara Day (Bargain Mansions); Steve Ford (Home Again with the Fords); Wendell Holland (Hot Mess House); Dave and Jenny Marrs (Fixer to Fabulous); Ty Pennington (Rock the Block); Jasmine Roth (Help! I Wrecked My House); Mina Starsiak Hawk (Good Bones); and Jon-Pierre and Mary Tjon-Joe-Pin (Two Steps Home).

“It’s too bad that small towns are so often undervalued because you can live a beautiful life in them,” said Erin. “People really want to believe in a bright future in the place where they live, but rebuilding a town is no small feat. It takes every member of that community using their gifts and skills coming together to make a difference.”

After receiving a deluge of 5,000 submissions, representing 2,600 towns from around the country, HGTV selected Wetumpka because, despite hardships, natural disasters and unexpected setbacks, the community’s undying spirit and resilience showed that they were ready to kickstart a comeback with HGTV’s help.

“Home Town Takeover will inspire small towns across America because it will show them the impact that neighbors, local leaders and a few friends working together can have on their community,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “We’ve seen the power of that in Laurel and we want to spark that same change in more small towns.”

During the premiere, the work will start right away as a colorful mural, painted by local students, signals big changes are on the horizon for Wetumpka. The Napiers and Marrs will complete a home renovation for a loving foster family while the owner of a struggling fashion boutique will get a fresh design to take her business into the future.

“That’s what we’re here to do with every project,” added Ben. “It is a massive task and we’re so thankful our HGTV and Discovery family were so inspired by Wetumpka’s story that they wanted to come and be a part of this enormous undertaking. It’s going to be awesome.”

HGTV will give excited viewers plenty of inside scoop about the making of Home Town Takeover in the premiere of the digital series, Road to the Takeover, on Sunday, April 25. The series will follow host Jason Pickens as he introduces fans to Wetumpka, and offers a first look at a few of the featured renovations. And, in Tales from the Takeover, every Monday beginning May 3, Jason will chat with Ben and Erin to get their perspective on each episode of Home Town Takeover. Both series will be available to watch across the network’s Facebook and IGTV, and on HGTV.com.

Fans are invited to stay connected with Ben, Erin and Home Town Takeover at HGTV.com. Fans also can follow @HGTV on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #LOVEMYHOMETOWN for additional show content, as well as follow Ben (@scotsman.co) and Erin (@erinapier) on Instagram. The new episodes of Home Town Takeover will be available the same day and time as the linear premieres on HGTV GO.

THE BEST DESIGN PLAN GETS BIGGER SLICE OF THE RENO BUDGET IN HGTV’S NEWEST HOME RENOVATION SERIES “INSIDE OUT” PREMIERING MONDAY, APRIL 26, AT 9 P.M. ET/PT

New York [March 29, 2021] Southern California home renovators Carmine Sabatella and Mike Pyle, stars of the new HGTV series Inside Out, begrudgingly agree on one thing: a beautifully updated home requires great design indoors and out. Premiering Monday, April 26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the seven-episode series follows Carmine, a real estate agent and interior designer, and Mike, a landscape designer, as they each pitch their design plans to clients. The budget is set, so the guys must be persuasive to score a bigger chunk of the dollars to either max out the interiors or make the most of the outdoor spruce up. More money for Carmine will mean clients get all they want and more for their home’s interior, while extra cash for Mike will give the property wow-factor curb appeal and major outdoor living perks. No matter who gets the majority of the renovation budget, both the interior and exterior will get a stunning transformation.

“In my 20 years of experience, I think the most important element of any renovation is what happens on the inside,” said Carmine.

“You’ve been living a lie for two decades,” said Mike. “A home extends way beyond the walls. Curb appeal is THE most important thing!”

In the premiere episode, Carmine and Mike meet a newlywed couple who purchased a fixer upper that needs major interior work and a full outdoor refresh. Carmine suggests an interior redo with high-end finishes and all new flooring, while Mike suggests a total front and backyard makeover. Ultimately, the couple must decide which plan is the best investment to create the staycation-worthy home of their dreams.

For Inside Out show updates, fans can visit HGTV.com/InsideOut and follow @HGTV and #HGTVInsideOut on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as @MikePyleDesign and @RealDesignCarmine on Instagram. Fans also can watch Carmine and Mike on HGTV’s fiercest home renovation competition series Rock the Block as they judge the exteriors and landscaping on Monday, April 5, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

From homes with outdated, over-the-top decor to ones with out-of-control memorabilia collections, the houses – and the owners – are in for a major change.

“Style mistakes are not confined to clothing,” said Raven. “Bad design prevents people from living well and truly enjoying their homes. My team and I are determined to show what to do – and what not to do – to create beautiful spaces.”

During the pilot, Raven and her team will meet with homeowners who are stuck in a style rut. They will survey what items to keep, toss and sell online to maximize the budget. After that, it’s out with the old as the rooms are emptied of everything, including carpet, drapes and wallpaper.

“To call these homes eclectic would be kind,” said Raven. “We’re going to give families a clean slate and show them how to style their new space and apply the “to-do” and “not-to-do” list to the rest of the house.”

What Not to Design is a new format based on BBC Studios’ global format What Not to Wear. The pilot is being produced by BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm.

DETROIT NEIGHBORHOODS GET A BOOST IN THE NEW HGTV SERIES “BARGAIN BLOCK” PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, AT 9 PM ET/PT

New York [March 17, 2021] Home renovation experts Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas fulfill their dream of restoring Motor City’s iconic American neighborhoods one house at a time in the new series Bargain Block, premiering Wednesday, April 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV. With help from their friend – lifetime Detroit resident and real estate expert Shea Hicks-Whitfield – the couple buys as many rundown and abandoned houses as they can on a single block and then renovates them to make them appealing, yet affordable enough for buyers within the community. While working on each of the under-renovation properties, Keith, a designer, and Evan, a builder and carpenter, strip them to the studs to create affordable, stylish, fully furnished starter homes that are ideal for first-time homebuyers. As champions of the mantra, “everyone deserves good design,” the duo infuses each renovation with artful and surprising aesthetics that uplift the rehabbed home and serve as an inspiration for other houses and homeowners on the block.

“I love Detroit because it actually feels like you can make a difference here,” said Keith. “There’s a sense of pride and urgency. We’re all in this together and we’re trying to build the best community that we can. And I love that.”

“In order to keep our costs down, we basically do everything ourselves, even the gross grunt work,” said Evan. “The first renos on a new block are a huge financial risk. Until we build up some comps at top dollar, we need to really be careful with our budget.”

In the season’s first episode, Shea hosts an open house for Keith and Evan’s first overhauled property on the neighborhood block, while the pair starts their next renovation a few doors down. Keith and Evan fully restore a dilapidated two-bedroom property into a stunning home with a modern theme that features warm colors, cozy furnishings and a huge main bedroom. Next, they reno a dark, dated three-bedroom house, giving it a mid-century vibe with colorful art and bold lighting on a shoestring budget.

“Keith and Evan are committed not only to renovating homes but to upgrading entire neighborhoods in the city that I love,” said Shea. “It’s a pleasure to support any effort to make owning a beautiful, custom and affordable home a reality for residents of Detroit.”

Exclusive photo galleries and behind-the-scenes content will be available at HGTV.com, and each episode will launch the same day and time on HGTV GO beginning Wednesday, April 14, at 9 p.m. Fans also can follow @HGTV on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #BargainBlock for additional show content and updates.
