The Property Brothers are at it again. Drew and Jonathan Scott are set to launch a new HGTV series this April that will feature some major star power. On Celebrity IOU, stars like Brad Pitt, Melissa McCarthy, and Viola Davis will work alongside the brothers to make special renovations for friends, family members, and mentors who have meaningfully impacted their lives on their rise to stardom.
Some of the projects include completely reimagining a backyard, updating a ’70s-style condo, and converting a detached garage into a guest retreat. The A-listers themselves will have a hand in the renovations; a trailer for the series shows Davis ripping out counters and Rebel Wilson driving a bulldozer. “It’s amazing to see someone who is extremely successful be grounded enough to always remember the people who helped them get there,” Jonathan said in a statement.
Added his brother Drew, “Being a part of this show really hits home for us. This is what we love to do, transforming people’s lives through their homes.” Other celebrities who will take part include Jeremy Renner and Michael Bublé.
A big factor behind the Property Brothers’ success has been their ability to tap into the emotional aspect of the home renovation process, which is something that fans will likely see this time around as well. “The wonderful thing about Celebrity IOU is that it is about personal acts of kindness and thanks. We all want to find ways to help the people who are always there for us when we need them,” HGTV network president Jane Latman said in a statement. Celebrity IOU marks the latest in the Scotts’ growing empire of home renovation programming—the pair has appeared on numerous other shows including A Very Brady Renovation, Brother vs. Brother, and more. Celebrity IOU premieres on HGTV on April 13 at 9 p.m. EST.
