New York [August 10, 2016] Production is underway on HGTV’s Brothers Take New Orleans, a new series starring popular twins Jonathan and Drew Scott of the Emmy®-nominated series Property Brothers. The four-episode series features the brothers as they compete to fully renovate two identical neighboring duplexes in New Orleans and vie to score the highest property value as determined by a panel of local real estate experts. The series is scheduled to premiere in November.
During the series produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers, the brothers find inspiration as they tour famous New Orleans landmarks with celebrities who have ties to the city. Throughout the competition, the brothers also work with local artists in order to infuse the city’s distinct character into the home renovations. Each episode features the guys as they explore New Orleans, experience the culture and meet people that can give them a boost during the competition.
The two newly renovated homes will be offered to two families selected by SBP, a New Orleans-based, national non-profit organization whose mission is to minimize the time between disaster and recovery. The renovated homes featured on Brothers Take New Orleans will mark SBP’s 1,140 home rebuild project.
