House Doctor Returning to Channel 5


LONDON: FremantleMedia’s Boundless Productions has been commissioned to produce 45 episodes of the popular home-makeover series House Doctor for Channel 5 in the U.K.

House Doctor is led by Los Angeles designer Tracy Metro, who helps transform homes to make them more appealing to buyers. The 45×60-minute new episodes will begin airing on Channel 5 later this year. The show’s global distribution is handled by FremantleMedia International.

Metro remarked: “There is so much potential in the houses I’ve seen and I love the thrill of bringing my distinctive design aesthetic and peppering it throughout the U.K., transforming houses as I go.”

Hannah Wyatt, the managing director of Boundless, stated: “I am delighted that House Doctor is coming back to our screens. Tracy is a fresh and exciting new presenter who brings a real can-do approach to the show, providing inspiration and insight into how to maximize selling a house.”

Emma Westcott, Channel 5’s commissioning editor for factual, added: “The return of the original and best home-selling show with fresh new talent is a real treat for viewers. Interest in the U.K. property market has never been greater with people hungry for advice on how to maximize the value and marketability of hard-to-sell homes.”
