New Unscripted Series Called HOME FREE Premieres July 22 at 9 PM (10 PM PT) on FOX
Upcoming Episode to Feature Amarr Garage Door and Opening System

 

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (JULY 31, 2015) – A new television series called “HOME FREE” will premiered July 22 at 9 p.m. (10 p.m. PT) on FOX.  The latest reality TV experiment puts a new twist on the home makeover genre.  The set-up: Nine do-it-yourself-er couples who need a new house are each given the chance to earn an ultimate dream home when they agree to live in a series of dilapidated fixer-uppers that they must renovate.

On “HOME FREE,” nine deserving couples are challenged to revive one run-down home every week. During each episode, famed professional contractor Mike Holmes (“Holmes on Homes®”) will present the couples with tasks designed to test and challenge the skills of these do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Holmes will be with the competitors every step of the way – picking apart their work and demanding they meet his high standards, while also sharing his expertise and guidance to help them reach new heights. But in a surprise twist, when the work is done for the day, the couples don’t have far to travel to get home…because not only must they work together to restore the home, they must all live together in the same dilapidated work site 24/7. The more they accomplish, the better they sleep at night.

An episode of “HOME FREE” featuring the installation of an Amarr garage door and opening system aired on July 22, 2015.  Entrematic vice president of marketing Vickie Lents said, “Entrematic is thrilled that an Amarr garage door was showcased in the premiere episode showing the improved curb appeal of a home.”

“A home is way more than brick and mortar. So being part of this new series and partnering with FOX is truly exciting for me,” said Mike Holmes. “I’m ready to break ground with these couples. It’s going to be a lot of sweat and tears but I promise you, all worth it in the end...trust me on this.”

HOME FREE is produced by Relativity Television and executive-produced by Tom Forman, George Verschoor, Trice Bartow, Brad Bishop, Andrew Marcus and Mike Holmes. The series will be distributed internationally by ELECTUS.
