NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Renovation expert Jonathan Knight, best known as a member of the Grammy®-nominated boy band New Kids on the Block, will take fans step-by-step when he restores a centuries-old New England farmhouse in a new HGTV pilot, Farmhouse Fixer. The episode will feature Jonathan—who has renovated more than 200 houses over 20 years—as he preserves the farmhouse’s historic charm and adds a modern layout with high-end amenities. The pilot is slated to air in 2019.
“Old farmhouses are American treasures,” said Jonathan. “Most have been in the same family for 200 years and have never been renovated. And they’re disappearing fast. If we don’t save them, they’re going to be gone.”
