ANIMAL CRIBS with Antonio Ballatore Premieres on Animal Planet 11/3
Designer and animal enthusiast Antonio Ballatore, winner of HGTV's Design STAR and lead on HGTV's The Antonio Treatment, has partnered with Animal Planet for the first time to bring his visionary and innovative design aesthetic to pet lovers everywhere in the all-new series, ANIMAL CRIBS, which premieres Friday, November 3 at 9 PM ET/PT.
On ANIMAL CRIBS, Antonio, his project manager Grace, and his right hand-dog, Chewie the bulldog, along with a team of Catsperts and Barkitects, transform drab, cramped homes and outside areas into functional, high-style spaces for both pets and the people they love. Antonio's excitement for both design and animals drive him to go the extra mile for his clients and their four-legged, winged, and scaly friends. The newly designed spaces, renovated specifically for the homeowners and their pets, feature design elements that alter homes to become creative and purposeful spaces for all to enjoy.
"Antonio's design expertise, along with his fun and fearless personality, plus amazing 'before & after' reveals, make this an entertaining, must-watch series," said Patrice Andrews, General Manager of Animal Planet. "We welcome Animal Cribs and Antonio and his crew to the Animal Planet family and to our Friday night line-up."
This season on ANIMAL CRIBS viewers will see a cabin redesign for a family and their blind dog; a complete backyard renovation featuring a pet-safe fire-pit; a man-cave that can accommodate 20 pets; and a room design complete with a soaring sculptural cat climbing wall, among other design transformations.
ANIMAL CRIBS is produced for Animal Planet by Punch Drunk Pictures where Rob Hill and Dave Greider are executive producers. For Animal Planet, Lisa Lucas is the executive producer with Patrick Keegan as producer.
