Chip and Joanna Gaines Launching T.V. Network: Here’s What We Know

By  | 

On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, Discovery announced that Chip and Joanna Gaines will be completing one more remodel – this time of the DIY network. The Texas couple, who have made home renovation and remodeling absolutely dreamy, will soon have their own cable TV channel as a component of a new multimedia company.

The network, which is integral to the company that will be led by the Gaines themselves, is still unnamed. It’s scheduled to debut a year from now in the summer months of 2020, and it will replace the spot currently held by the DIY Network. At present, DIY has a total viewership of 52 million U.S. homes, according to Discovery. In the process, a new streaming service is also in the works.

In a joint statement released by the couple, they said, “Our intention with this network is to create and curate content that inspires, encourages, and helps to build bridges across our communities. We want honest, authentic programming that brings families together.” HGTV President Allison Page will be named the President of this new network, and the Gaines will become Chief Creative Officers.

The new network programming is still being developed, however, it’s been said by Discovery that topics such as home, garden, wellness, and community will be among them. Likewise, design will be incorporated into its contingent, and the full “Fixer Upper” library will be featured on this new channel. Their popular home remodel and renovation show formally ended in April 2018. The couple stated that this next step would let them spend more time with their family. In November 2018, they announced a return to TV on their own network, and as of March of this year, a spokesperson from Magnolia (the Gaines’ Texas-based company) confirmed that a deal was yet to be finalized. Now that it’s been officially announced, viewers can happily plan for some creative content and brand new programs to look forward to with the signature style of Chip and Joanna Gaines throughout!
