With the recent announcement of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ cable network it looks like the power couple is poised to take over the world—or at least Discovery’s DIY Network. Fans of the Fixer Upper stars, and Discovery DIY’s 52 million fans, can get in some serious Chip and Jo time starting in the summer of 2020!
Along with the entire library of HGTV’s Fixer Upper series, the Gaines’ new network will feature plenty of home, garden, food, wellness and design programming. Also look for shows the center on community and entrepreneurialism (because obviously the pair have that down to a science).
In a statement to PEOPLE, Magnolia spokesperson John Marsicano said, “We’re thrilled to officially announce a media joint venture with Discovery.” Marsicano also added, “Our goal for this multi-platform media company is to deliver a unique, inspiring and family-friendly content experience rooted in honesty and authenticity—the kind of programming that helps bring people together. We believe Discovery is the perfect partner for this joint venture and we are excited for what lies ahead!”
The Gaines’ will helm the new media venture, which includes content on the television channel itself and the TV Everywhere app, as Chief Creative Officers with current HGTV President Allison Page as president.
In a press statement the Gaines said, of their still yet-to-be-named new network, “Our intention with this network is to create and curate content that inspires, encourages, and helps to build bridges across our communities. We want honest, authentic programming that brings families together.” Now that’s something to look forward to!
