It's going to be a busy summer for HGTV. The home-focused cable channel announced at its Upfront presentation to advertisers in New York on Tuesday that it would debut nine new series by July 31.
The highest profile new series is "Brother Vs. Brother," starring twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott from the series "Property Brothers" as they each mentor a team of six home improvement experts in a competition to raise the value of various properties.
The other new competition series is "HGTV Star," which will follow aspiring HGTV hosts through a series of challenges to land a position on their very own HGTV series.
The two new restoration-themed series are "Flip or Flop," about house flippers, and "Catastrophe, Inc.," about a crew of people restoring homes after natural disasters have wrecked them.
