HGTV will unveil its transformation of the Brady Bunch house in Studio City, Calif., with a new show, "A Very Brady Renovation," Curbed Los Angeles reports. HGTV originally purchased the home in August 2018, pledging to "restore [the home] to its 1970s glory." In November 2018, the network announced current HGTV stars would partner with original cast members to renovate the home with a '70s-style design in keeping with the show's aesthetics. The crew has spent the last eight months renovating the property and turning it into a replica of the original TV set design, according to Curbed Los Angeles.
While the exterior of the pink ranch house on Dilling Street was used in establishing shots throughout the series, the interiors were never seen in the show. Jane Latman, HGTV’s president, says viewers will be “transported back in time” when they see the final result.
“HGTV left no stone unturned, creating a perfect replica of the home down to the horse statue next to the staircase and the stuffed animal giraffe in the girls’ bedroom,” she said.
The actors who played the six Brady Bunch siblings worked on the renovation with Jonathan and Drew Scott (Property Brothers), Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E Laine (Good Bones), Leanne and Steve Ford (Restored by the Fords), Jasmine Roth (Hidden Potential), and Lara Spencer (Flea Market Flip).
The work entailed a 2,000-square-foot addition, recreating the show’s floating staircase, dining room, and orange and green kitchen and family room, and scouring flea markets for furniture and tchotchkes.Read More
