Relativity lines up home reno UK remake

US producer Relativity Television has sold live event home renovation format Built By America Live to a UK prodco.

Zig Zag Productions will look to work up a UK version of the format, which is billed as “half home renovation, half live stunt” event television.

Over five days, an audience will design a dream home, which is built in real time as online votes affected the construction. Viewers that vote then get the chance to win the house in the finale episode.

Relativity, which is behind the successful Extreme Makeover: Home Edition format, said it is “advanced talks with major US networks across a range of format options”.

Zig Zag is known for shows such as Troy, I Wanna Marry Harry, Freddie Flintoff Vs the World and Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men.
