Magnolia Network has picked up two new series for its spring slate, “Happy to Be Home With the Benkos” following the family of designer Gray Benko and “Motel Rescue” hosted by “Inn the Works” star Lindsey Kurowski.
The Chip and Joanna Gaines-run network has also renewed “Beach Cottage Chronicles” and “Diary of an Old Home” for second seasons, which will debut this spring.
“Happy to be Home with the Benkos” is a six-episode, hour-long series co-produced by Blind Nil and Buck Ross. According to the network’s description, “Designer Gray Benko brings color and happiness to historic homes in the lowcountry of South Carolina. Her whimsical vision is brought to life with the help of her thoughtful, craftsman husband, Mike, and eccentric, contractor father, Grumpy.”
“Motel Rescue” is a seven-episode, hour-long series hailing from Lando. Per Magnolia, “Lindsey Kurowski is hitting the road to help struggling motel owners across America who need some help getting back on track.”
Additionally, Magnolia Network has set the premiere dates for its February programming slate, including new seasons of “Recipe Lost and Found,” “First Time Fixer,” “Barnwood Builders” and “Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation,” as well as new episodes of “In with the Old.”
