In each episode of the HGTV show, celebrities will give an inside look into their personal lives and get hands-on with the Property Brothers stars to come up with a design plan and create a customized place for their loved ones. The Scott brothers will travel across the country to help create these new spaces on tight timelines. According to the show’s press release, the projects shown on this season will include converting a detached garage into a guest retreat, overhauling a backyard into an entertainer’s dream, and taking a condo from an outdated ’70s style to a modern home.
“It’s amazing to see someone who is extremely successful be grounded enough to always remember the people who helped them get there,” Jonathan said in a statement about the new show.
“Being a part of this show really hits home for us,” Drew added in his own statement. “This is what we love to do, transforming people’s lives through their homes.”
“From Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to the very exciting, upcoming Home Town Takeover, HGTV is having success with series that celebrate the power of human connection,” Jane Latman, president of HGTV, said in a statement. “The wonderful thing about Celebrity IOU is that it is about personal acts of kindness and thanks. We all want to find ways to help the people who are always there for us when we need them.”
Celebrity IOU premieres on Monday, April 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.
