TLC—the network that brought "Trading Spaces" into living rooms across America—returns to the home design genre with the new series "Mad About the House," featuring design expert Ryan Brown. The announcement was made today by Amy Winter, TLC's GM. The network has ordered six one-hour episodes of the series; production has already begun and is scheduled for an early May premiere.

"Mad About the House" is part design drama and part relationship renovation. In each episode, a couple is given $25,000 to make over three rooms of their house, but with a twist. Before they start the renovation their individual senses of style are put to the test, with one half of the couple working with expert Ryan Brown to help create their dream room. Both looks are revealed in the end and they discover if their design decisions are closely married or worlds apart.



"'Mad About the House' brings home makeovers back to TLC," said Winter. "Through a big-concept format that gives us double the design, we address the completely relatable challenge of having couples try to agree on the look and style of their home. By exploring renovations through the lenses of relationships and taking a look at how well couples know each other's style, the series is a perfect complement to our schedule."

"Mad About the House" is produced by Pilgrim Films and Television based on a format by Renegade Pictures (UK) Ltd. for TLC. Executive Producers are Craig Piligian and Laurie Girion.
