DISCOVERY FAMILY CHANNEL EXPANDS ITS HOME & FOOD PROGRAMMING SLATE THIS SEPTEMBER WITH NEW SERIES GAME OF HOMES AND THE INCREDIBLE FOOD RACE
August 3, 2016
(Miami, FL) – This September, Discovery Family Channel is proving that food and home design can be fun for the entire family with the premieres of two new reality series that promise to deliver a night of fun competition and inspire DIY ideas for your own home and kitchen.
In the eight-episode series GAME OF HOMES, premiering Tuesday, September 6 at 9p/8c, host Cameron Mathison (Entertainment Tonight, All My Children) guides four teams of amateur home renovators as they attempt to save dilapidated houses that are marked to be torn down and revive them room by room into their dream homes. Prior to the competition, the houses were picked up off their foundation and ceremoniously transferred to massive barges located in the GAME OF HOMES arena. Here, the teams will completely renovate the run down structures while living inside their slowly improving homes where they must cope with small budgets, tight deadlines and even tighter living spaces! In each episode, two expert judges (Cheryl Torrenueva and Jeremy MacPherson) along with celebrity guest judges vote for their favorite room renovations based on design and workmanship. At the end of the series, the winners will be awarded with the house they have painstakingly renovated. Energetic, suspenseful and inspirational, GAME OF HOMES pits each team’s skills, ingenuity and teamwork against each other in the name of crafty design.
Premiering Wednesday, September 7 at 9p/8c, Discovery Family Channel takes the idea of a “game show” to a new level with a competition that awards the winner with free groceries for an entire year in the six-part series THE INCREDIBLE FOOD RACE. In each episode, two different families battle it out in a super-charged race full of fun food challenges and a main event: a family vs. family cook-off in the ultimate outdoor stadium. One ticking clock, two eager families and a kid-approved meal prepared in front of a live and hungry audience all culminate in the ultimate prize for the entire family!
GAME OF HOMES is produced by Great Pacific Media and distributed exclusively worldwide by Beyond Distribution. For Great Pacific Media, Blair Reekie is the series producer. THE INCREDIBLE FOOD RACE is produced by Tricon Films & Television. For Tricon Films & Television, Andrea Gorfolova, Jameel Bharmal and Marc Kell Whitehead are the executive producers.
