FYI has ordered the new series tentatively called “Prefabulous” from Vox Entertainment, which will focus on the real estate trend of prefabricated homes. The scoop: Pre-fab living has become the “new” American dream for homebuyers who want all things custom, at a reasonable price. No longer the generic pre-fab homes of yesteryear, architects and designers are building high-end, architecturally stunning, yet affordable fully customizable homes and getting it all done on a very short timeline. In each episode of the series, viewers will follow an individual or family as they embark on building their dream pre-fab home.
“We want audiences to connect with Vox Media brands wherever they are – across every platform and device they are using – that includes websites, social and mobile platforms, live events, text, video, audio, and now in our first extension to television with FYI,” said Marty Moe, President, Vox Media and Vox Entertainment. “We’re excited to work with FYI to take Curbed’s expertise around the pre-fab housing trend to television – as it is consistently one of the top topics across all of Curbed’s channels and has proven to draw in a large, young and modern audience.”
“Prefabulous” is produced by Vox Entertainment, a division of Vox Media, for FYI. Executive producers for Vox Entertainment are Marty Moe, Chad Mumm and Kelsey Keith. Gena McCarthy and Liz Fine will serve as executive producers for FYI. There is no confirmed launch date at present.
