HGTV Provides Fans with Multiple Ways to Stay Connected with 'A Very Brady Renovation'
Leading up to HGTV's groundbreaking renovation series 'A Very Brady Renovation' -- airing in late 2019 -- detailed coverage will be provided across multiple platforms as the renovation progresses.
Want to stay up on all the activity, plans — and just who's taking part in HGTV's ambitious overhaul of the famous 'Brady Bunch' house? Want to follow along on the celebrity drop-bys, behind-the-scenes moments, special events — and which 'Brady kids' are working with which HGTV stars on which room renos? You're in luck, Brady fans and aficionados. There's one place to get the latest on all things related to A Very Brady Renovation, and it's as easy as hgtv.com/brady.
Case in point. The early phases of demolition and construction have already begun, and we've just launched the exclusive digital series, Building Brady. Each week a new episode will offer a behind-the-scenes look as some of HGTV's top talent join forces with one or more of the 'Brady siblings' to work on a particular space in the house or phase of the renovation.
A 'Very Brady' Digital Video Series
From the behind-the-scenes digital series Building Brady: The original cast members lay eyes on the "Brady house" for the first time since they were "Brady kids".
The first two installments of Building Brady have already launched on HGTV.com. (You can see them here). The first webisode documents the initial (some might say momentous) gathering of all six of the actors who portrayed the Brady kids (the first such reunion in 15 years!) with a bunch of Brady-loving HGTV stars. On hand were Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, Leanne and Steve Ford of Restored by the Fords, Mina and Karen from Good Bones, Lara Spencer of Flea Market Flip and Hidden Potential host Jasmine Roth.
Together they marvel at the house's universally recognizable exterior, and the interior spaces that are not (at least not yet) very much like what the show's fans — or the actors themselves — remember from the '70s series. Building Brady is far from the end of the story. Additional digital series will launch throughout 2019 — on HGTV.com as well as on social media outlets — leading up to the premiere of the full-blown HGTV show.
I grew up watching that show and learning from that show and just wanting to be one of those characters.Steve Ford
Very Brady, Very Social
Speaking of the Property Brothers ... in yet another case of convergence and crossover, earlier today Drew and Jonathan Scott took over HGTV’s Instagram Stories together with Maureen McCormick and Christopher Knight, documenting their work together on the renovation. “It was so exciting for our social media fanbase to see our stars join forces in real time to recreate the iconic spaces from The Brady Bunch set that we all know so well," said Abbi McCollum, vice president of convergence and social media for HGTV.
Brady Fever. Catch It!
Looking for a chance to participate? Here's an opportunity. Fans are encouraged to share their Brady Bunch memorabilia, 70s-inspired house designs and pictures from the era using the hashtag #verybradyreno for a chance to be featured on HGTV's social channels. “We know that fans of The Brady Bunch are just as excited about this project as we are at HGTV,” McCollum said. “We can’t wait to see fans share memories, fashion and items from the 70s, and we’re excited to welcome new fans to the Brady world.”
'Brady' fans can engage with all things 'Brady,' by following along during the course of the home’s transformation, and there's no shortage of venues for them to do so.

The Very Brady Renovation Facebook Watch page will feature in-depth video series for Brady super fans as well as totally far-out (yes, we said it) 70s-inspired decorating and entertaining social videos.
