Magnolia Network, Discovery’s joint venture with home improvement gurus Chip and Joanna Gaines, is premiering four more original series to round out its summer slate: “The Cabin Chronicles,” “Extraordinary Stories Behind Everyday Things,” “RE(Motel)” and “Where We Call Home.”
The quartet of new shows will debut on Discovery Plus, the streaming home of Magnolia Network, as well as on the Magnolia app. The network’s full summer slate features 30 original programs as well as the complete archives of “Fixer Upper,” the show that first launched the Gaines’ TV career, and precedes the January 2022 launch of Magnolia Network’s linear rebrand of DIY Network. As Variety reported exclusively in February, Magnolia Network — which currently has a preview hub on Discovery Plus — is launching digitally first on July 15, and on linear in the new year.
“The Cabin Chronicles,” which explores the architecture, design and human connection behind beautiful cabins and their surroundings, is produced by Blue Chalk.
“Extraordinary Stories Behind Everyday Things,” produced by Citizen Pictures and Anomaly, provides an “in-depth look at how iconic American-made products are created and celebrates the ingenuity, passion and creativity of the people who proudly stand behind these timeless classics,” according to the network.
“RE(Motel),” produced by BFD, offers a look at American motel owners who have restored and redesigned historic properties for a new generation of travelers.
Lastly, “Where We Call Home,” produced by Brother, features unconventional and commercial properties that have been redesigned as modern homes.
The shows join the “Fixer Upper” reboot, “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home,” as well as “Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines,” “The Lost Kitchen,” “Growing Floret,” “At Home With Johnnyswim,” and “Restoration Road With Clint Harp.”
