NBC's "Renovation Nation" seeking properties in New Hampshire

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 ideal scenario is to find two properties that are in close proximity to each other, preferably on the same block. Two teams of designers, one for each property, would then completely renovate the existing structures working around the clock for five straight days. Upon completion the homes will be considerably improved and should provide a lasting positive impact on the neighborhoods the show visits.

New Hampshire is currently being scouted for possible property locations. If you know of a property (or two!) and would like to have them considered for the show, submit information and pictures to Matt Newton at the New Hampshire Film & Television Office via email at film@nh.gov.
