Are you thankful for the Property Brothers? Do we have a Thanksgiving surprise for you...(!) 

Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott take on their biggest challenge yet in the new four-part series Brothers Take New Orleans, premiering tonight on HGTV at 9|8c.

Each armed with $100,000, the brothers compete side-by-side to increase the property value of two traditional New Orleans shotgun houses with a little (a lot of!) help from locals. Guest judges familiar with the Big Easy's architecture, including Scott Bakula (NCIS) and Hoda Kotb (The Today Show), pick a winner every week, and at the end, the two homes are returned back to the community.

So how do Jonathan and Drew handle the challenges of a renovation in the New Orleans humidity and blend their personal styles with the city's traditional looks? Here's a quick sneak peek at what's coming in tonight's episode when the brothers each focus their attentions on the houses' living room.

Before any design gets going, Jonathan and Drew have to work side by side to rearrange the home's shotgun layout and separate the two spaces.
