Air TV Preps Derelict Rescue for HGTV, discovery+


Derelict Rescue, a new docuseries following ambitious home builders in Britain, is set to launch on Discovery’s HGTV and discovery+.

In the ten-part series, the builders take on some of the country’s most rundown abandoned buildings—from crumbling railway stations to abandoned RAF bases, disused lighthouses and water towers—and turn them into unique family homes. Derelict Rescue, produced by Air TV, will be delivered in late 2021 and be distributed globally by Parade Media.

Matt Richards, director and executive producer at Air TV, said “This is already shaping up to be a fascinating, authentic and engaging series. With our team following so many exciting and varied conversions and renovations across the U.K., we are getting closer to the action and showing the true realities of ambitious self-build projects like never before.”

Mark Caulton, chief content officer at Parade Media, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Discovery and Air TV on this exciting new series, which offers a fascinating and unique spin on the proven formula of families pursuing their vision of a dream home.”
