HGTV Announces 2012 Programming Lineup
HGTV will roll out more than a dozen new original series and 20 specials in 2012, including a new season of the hugely popular HGTV Design Star, the new design series White Room Challenge and Selling London - a spin-off of the hit HGTV real estate series Selling NY. HGTV's programming will offer an exciting and entertaining lineup that features returning fan favorites, fresh new designers and several famous faces - either sharing their passion for design with viewers or receiving the HGTV treatment themselves.
For the pop culture connoisseur, HGTV will have its fair share of celebrity appearances. In Going Yard, landscape professional and popular runner-up from The Bachelorette Chris Lambton and his fiancé Peyton Wright will transform neglected backyards into amazing outdoor family retreats. In January, LeAnn Rimes and her husband Eddie Cibrian will have their Chicago residence redone by designer Jonathan Pierce and his Nashville-based team in the new series, Interiors Inc.
