Steel City Rehab pilot hits HGTV on April 30
April 18, 2017
Secret’s out, Pittsburgh. We’re finally able to share this thing with you, and we are over-the-moon ecstatic. Our pilot episode of Steel City Rehab is coming in hot on HGTV — Sunday, April 30 at noon EST.
In conjunction with a crew of producers and film extraordinaires from Los Angeles, the VIPs at HGTV ordered a pilot starring a few key components of Lifespace and our sister company, K Bennett Development Group.
Led by company founders Kris and Tara Bennett, the hourlong episode details the trials and successes of residential remodeling as the husband-wife team search for a rehab-worthy home in Friendship. Weighing in throughout the episode are Lifespace realtor Jesse Wig and KBDG project manager Cameron Nicols. Spoilers: We laugh, we disagree, we joke at Jesse’s expense. Something you may have anticipated: Pittsburgh is actually even more photogenic than you think it is.
…We know you’ve got questions. And we have answers. Thing is, you’ll need cable to hear them. Set those DVRs to record: Steel City Rehab hits HGTV at 12 p.m. sharp on April 30. No judgment here if you’re chillin’ couchside in your PJs, either. It’s a Sunday, after all…and we know what goes down in the ‘Burgh on Saturday nights.
To our community here in Pittsburgh — thank you. You’ve blown us away with your support, and we are extraordinarily grateful to share this with you. Cheers, Steel City.
