Roku is moving forward on an eight-episode series with a “bold twist” on the home improvement genre.
Hosted by actor Jessica Alba and Lizzy Mathis, founder of The Cool Mom Co., Honest Renovations sees the duo helping “deserving families complete the home renovations of their dreams and confront issues about parenting through candid conversations.”
Production begins later this year.
“Becoming a parent was exciting, scary and confusing all at once. Parenthood is the most transformative life experience, and no matter how much you think you’re prepared; you never really are,” said Alba in a statement. “I can’t wait to share the stories of the special families and their incredible home renovations with viewers on The Roku Channel.”
Mathis claims parenthood turned her world upside down, but that it’s a uniting experience.
“That’s why I’m so excited to bring the stories of these deserving families to The Roku Channel and execute truly life-changing home makeovers to help make life as a new parent a little more functional in Honest Renovations,” Mathis added.
“As we continue to build momentum for Roku Originals, we are proud to partner with Jessica, Lizzy, and the teams at 3 Arts and High Noon on Honest Renovations,” said Brian Tannenbaum, head of alternative originals at Roku. “Jessica and Lizzy’s compassion, mixed with no-nonsense approach to parenting, will offer our viewers a fresh, relatable, and bold twist on the home renovation genre.”
