A new HGTV house-flipping show set in Milwaukee is headed to your televisions – but it needs your help to stay there.
On Sunday, April 2, HGTV will premiere the pilot episode of "My Flippin' Friends," a new home renovation show featuring five Milwaukee-area natives – lead designer Jenni Radosevich, real estate expert Mike Styke, project manager Alan Damato, and design team experts Mallory Davis and Ben Bernhard – having fun flipping houses right here in the Cream City.
Radosevich, who founded the DIY design company I Spy DIY, posted the first preview of the show on her Facebook page:
The pilot for "My Flippin' Friends" airs at 11 a.m., but if you want to see more of this Cream City redecorating quintet, the show will need more than your eyeballs.
According to Radosevich, the network will determine if the show gets a full-season order based on the amount of buzz this maiden episode can generate. So if you're a fan of what you see – both now and in the early afternoon on April 2 – comment on HGTV's Facebook page, share the teaser video and use the hashtag #myflippinfriends.
So flip on your televisions, watch fun friends flip homes, flip out online and, I don't know, eat a bag of Flips chocolate-covered pretzels. For flip's sake.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
