NEW YORK –
Mother/daughter home renovation and flipping duo Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak will star in the new HGTV series Good Bones
, premiering Tuesday, March 22, at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Daughter Mina, a real estate agent, and mom Karen, a former lawyer, own an Indianapolis-based home renovation business with a mission to revitalize their favorite neighborhoods one house at a time. The 10 episode series will follow the expert team as they buy homes in serious disrepair, sometimes gut them to the studs and transform them into stunning remodels.
“Home renovation series are among HGTV’s strongest ratings drivers,” said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV and DIY Network. “As Karen and Mina take on drastic home renovation projects, their fun and fearless dynamic adds an entertaining dimension to the series.”
In the premiere episode, Karen and Mina will tackle a dilapidated 600 sq. ft. one-bedroom home in the Barth neighborhood of Indianapolis. Karen, Mina and their team will rip out the floors, tear down the ceiling and strip the siding—only to discover, among other things, that the old wood-frame home is engulfed in termites.
“With every house we renovate, we’re raising property values and bringing new homeowners to the neighborhood,” said Mina.
Added Karen, “For me, it’s all about having an impact in our hometown and making it a better place.”
