CBS Ordered “Secret Celebrity Renovation,”
a reality series hosted by Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight.” Talent across sports, music and entertainment return to their hometowns to make heartfelt home renovation gifts. Musician/host Eve, comedian Wayne Brady, NBA star Chris Paul and Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith are among the first batch of celebs giving back. The series is produced by Robert Horowitz’s Juma Entertainment. “We’ve been working on this format for quite some time. Three years ago we tested the concept in the CBS weekend afternoon sports block using athletes and a renovation for their hometown hero or mentor,” Robert Horowitz, president of JUMA Entertainment, tells Cynopsis. “The success with two specials showed us that by combining a feel-good renovation give-back format with a heavy dose of celebrity hometown storytelling, we had the making of a compelling prime time concept. And when we pitched the CBS’ entertainment execs the following year, it was the hometown beat and true connection between celebrity and recipient that seemed to resonate most in the room.”

Fox acquired CTV unscripted series “Holmes Family Effect,” which stars home renovation contractor and TV personality Mike Holmes for a midseason 2020-21 premiere. From Bell Media, the four-part series is slated to premiere in Canada on CTV in early 2021.

TV, and as part of the deal will exec-produce, write and direct “Peacemaker,” HBO Max’s spinoff of James Gunn’s upcoming “The Suicide Squad” movie.
