Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Heads to Brazil


Endemol Shine Group has struck a deal with Globosat’s GNT to produce a Brazilian version of the reality format Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

The series sees communities brought together to renovate homes for a family that is down on their luck. Presented by Otaviano Costa (Video Show), Extreme Makeover Brazil will transform not only the homes but also the lives of the participants. Casting is underway in Brazil, with the series set to air in 2020.

This deal follows the recent news from the U.S., where Endemol Shine North America is bringing the format back after a seven-year break with Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) on board as host for HGTV.

Juliana Algañaraz, CEO of Endemol Shine Brazil, said, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition tells exciting inspiring and personal stories through the home renovations. We could not be happier with the partnership with GNT, who expect a high-quality production to bring the best content to the country. It will be a great success!”

Lisa Perrin, CEO of creative networks at Endemol Shine Group, added, “This format is one of the most iconic property shows in our portfolio and we are thrilled it is enjoying a revival. Brazil is an important market and with this deal following the U.S. commission, there is a great optimism and energy around this joyous series which brings together communities.”
