From celebrities tackling home remodels to regular folks renovating their homes, DIY Network will premiere seven new series that focus on the realities of home improvement. The network’s latest addition to its “celebrity home rehab” franchise, The Shatner Project , premieres in October and will follow the home renovation of actor William Shatner, instantly recognizable to television fans as the original Star Trek captain, James T. Kirk, commander of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise; Sergeant T.J. Hooker of T.J. Hooker and Attorney Denny Crane of Boston Legal. In May, the highly anticipated series Daryl’s Restoration Over-Hall will premiere, starring singer/songwriter Daryl Hall from the musical duo Hall & Oates as he revives the historic charm of an 18 th century Connecticut home. In addition, popular licensed contractor Jason Cameron will help homeowners smash their way to gorgeous new spaces by wrecking and remodeling their worst rooms in the new series, Sledgehammer .

“DIY Network offers an authentic look at the realities of dealing with any home improvement project,” said Steven Lerner, senior vice president of programming development, HGTV and DIY Network. “When fans see Daryl Hall chasing his passion for historical rehab or William Shatner remodeling his outdated LA pad, they’re getting a glimpse of a real renovation – and they’re seeing that no matter who you are, the challenges that come with tackling a home remodel are universal.”

Additional new DIY Network series will include First Time Flippers , featuring overzealous property virgins who put their do-it-yourself real estate skills to the ultimate test; and Stone Age , which follows father and son duo, Steve and Nick Rhule, as they build amazing custom outdoor designs, including waterfalls, patios and fire pits, one rock at a time. Family Under Construction: Hawaii will follow along as a family of five lives through a whole home renovation in Hawaii and Disaster Decks will feature designer/carpenter Paul LaFrance as he rescues homeowners from their outdoor renovation woes.
