New York [April 26, 2022] Snoop Dogg will trade in his microphone for power tools to give a life-changing renovation to Commish, the commissioner of his youth football league, in a new episode of Celebrity IOU, airing Monday, May 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV and available to stream on discovery+. The rapper, songwriter, actor and entrepreneur, who has amassed multiple GRAMMY Award® and Emmy® Award nominations, says Commish, his close friend of 16 years, is passionate about serving young people and has made a great impact in their community. With his arsenal of creativity and a sense of deep gratitude in his toolbelt, Snoop will tag team with real estate and renovation experts Drew and Jonathan Scott to transform Commish’s detached garage into a personalized luxury retreat where he can work and also take time for himself.  

“Commish is a giver,” said Snoop. “Anytime you have someone that does more giving than receiving, you feel like you’ve got to give them something to help them understand what they do when they help people. He inspires a lot of people, so I wanted to give him something that he could be inspired by.”

As he tours the garage with Drew and Jonathan, Snoop wastes no time sharing his ambitious vision for a multi-purpose space that will be an office as well as a relaxing place for Commish to entertain. Snoop will get hands-on to saw down walls, jackhammer an old concrete floor and choose the modern black and white design elements that help create a kitchen, living space and outdoor patio with high-end style and high-tech finishes. 

“This man means the world to me,” said Snoop. “He took my football league to a whole other level. This is something I wanted to do for him to just let him know I love him and I care about him. He never dreamed of it or wanted it, but it still is a dream come true.”

Celebrity IOU spotlights Hollywood A-listers who wield sledgehammers and pick up power tools to help an extraordinary person in their lives get the renovation they need. The series features Drew and Jonathan and their celebrity friends as they inspire, entertain and bring fans to happy tears with deeply personal stories of gratitude. Working together with the Brothers, the celebs get their hands dirty to surprise their deserving friends and mentors with the stunning home overhauls. Celebrity IOU is produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Drew and Jonathan as executive producers.
