Need a home makeover? HGTV show wants you

Leopard Films USA, the production company for HGTV’s “Hidden Potential” and “Dear Genevieve,” is casting for a new home makeover and lifestyle TV show.

“We are looking for families with big personalities, busy and chaotic lives ... and who have even bigger troubles with their home” according to the New York-based company’s press release.

“The [HGTV] show will focus on how to help selected families get their chaotic lives on track while taking their living space and making it a beautiful, functional and happy home,” it adds.

The company’s casting producer, Martin Hardy, said, “HGTV has not released a press release on the show; they are being ‘hush-hush’ about it because it is a new venture for them. I can tell you it is called ‘Home Rules,’ and we are starting production in January.”
