Channel 5 brings House Doctor Back

MUMBAI:  The iconic home makeover show, House Doctor will return to Channel 5 later this year as Boundless Productions, part of FremantleMedia UK confirms it has been commissioned to make 45x60 episodes. Worldwide distribution will be handled by FremantleMedia International.

Tracy Metro, a top designer from LA and regular on Oprah Winfrey’s Home Made Simple, is the House Doctor. Tracy’s upbeat, creative approach to design proves that with a minimum of investment, simple home-styling can turn dodgy décor into stunning transformations that sell houses quickly.

In any housing market, there’s a marked contrast between the houses that sell in a heartbeat and those that languish on the market.  Tracy is convinced it’s all to do with presenting the house in the best possible light. It’s time to get rid of cluttered, dirty, dark and old fashioned homes and employ some quick and clever fixes that get buyers-to-be rushing to exchange contracts.

Tracey Metro said: “There is so much potential in the houses I’ve seen and I love the thrill of bringing my distinctive design aesthetic and peppering it throughout the UK, transforming houses as I go.”

Managing Director of Boundless Hannah Wyatt said: “I am delighted that House Doctor is coming back to our screens. Tracy is a fresh and exciting new presenter who brings a real can-do approach to the show, providing inspiration and insight into how to maximise selling a house. “

Emma Westcott, Channel 5’s Commissioning Editor Factual commented: “The return of the original and best home selling show with fresh new talent is a real treat for viewers.  Interest in the UK property market has never been greater with people hungry for advice on how to maximise the value and marketability of hard to sell homes.

House Doctor is a 45x60 minute Boundless production for Channel 5.  Commissioned by Emma Westcott, Channel 5.  Series Editor is Helen White, Executive Producer is John Comerford for Boundless Productions.
