My pilot is airing on HGTV!!! Watch “My Flippin’ Friends” on April 2nd!
I am a bit delirious as I write this because after a year of keeping this secret, I finally get to announce that the home renovation pilot we filmed for HGTV, call My Flippin’ Friends, is airing on April 2nd, at Noon EST/11am CT!!! I shared the news on social media yesterday and am overwhelmed with the response. This has been a goal of mine for so long! Ever since starting I SPY DIY, I have been pitching the idea of a TV show, but never quite had the perfect idea, or the timing was off… and somehow through a series of random events this idea came together and we were fortunate enough to have HGTV love it enough to give us a pilot! Keeping this secret has been SO hard and I am elated that I finally get to say it out loud! It’s honestly surreal. I am SO proud of the pilot, the crew and production team are amazing, and made this insane process seem a little more normal. And my friends are beyond amazing, they had no idea what I was getting them into, and every one has handled it like a star, and they are so charismatic on TV 🙂 The dynamic between us is so fun, and I can’t wait for you all to see it!
Before I get ahead of myself, here is a little bit about the show: It’s about me and my four friends working together to buy and flip properties in our hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In each episode, you’ll watch the team take on a new home for flipping. Real estate broker and self-proclaimed group hall-monitor, Mike, will be responsible for presenting options. The team will walk through the potential homes together and by group vote, decide which project to tackle next. Once we’ve selected a home, each team member will need to layout their plans of attack: Alan from a construction and build perspective, I head up the design team including Benji and Mallory to oversee the overall look and staging of each house, and Mike is in charge of the budget and listing the properties. The process unfolds from demolition, to build, to design, to staging and, eventually, sale. Together we manage all the stress that comes from flipping houses, plus the ups, downs and fun that comes along when working with friends!
Here are a few Behind-the-Scene pics from the show!
Ok, Now here is where we need you all! HGTV decides if we get a full series based off the response to the pilot, so PLEASE help us spread the word!
And THANK YOU for all your support throughout the years, this opportunity truly is a dream come true!
