HGTV executives reportedly pitched a show where people renovate former meth labs
HGTVexecutives pitched a show called " MethHouse Makeover" in June 2020.
- People would transform former meth labs into dream homes on the theoretical show.
- The potential series is one of a few bold shows the network is considering airing.
HGTV executives considered spotlighting former meth labs in a new series, according to a report from The New Yorker.
The proposed show was one of a handful of avant-garde
Regardless of the final structure, the end goal of "Meth House Makeover" would be to turn meth labs into dream homes, offering a more scandalous version of the typical renovations featured on HGTV."I love the idea of starting the show in hazmat suits," Loren Ruch, an HGTV senior executive, said at the meeting, according to The New Yorker.
HGTV shows have traditionally been less splashy than "Meth House Makeover" would be.The titles of the programs on HGTV might be different, but you can expect to see the same predictable things in all the homes featured on the network: open concept spaces, shiplap walls, and farmhouse sinks. But according to The New Yorker's reporting, the massively successful network is planning to embrace new types of shows as streaming becomes the main way people consume television.
During the same meeting that "Meth House Makeover" was pitched, the executives discussed airing a series full of rejected-HGTV applicants called "The World's Weirdest Realtors," according to The New Yorker.
"The World's Weirdest Realtors" would feature people who don't fit the traditional HGTV mold, like a realtor who specializes in finding homes for polyamorous families. "House Hunters" made headlines for featuring a throuple for the first time in its 17-season history in 2020.Neither "Meth House Makeover" nor "The World's Weirdest Realtors" have been aired at the time of writing and it's not clear if the shows are even in production.
HGTV did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment on this story.
