HGTV Orders Competition Series ‘Design Star: Next Gen’

Production Has Begun for a Fall 2021 Debut

HGTV has begun production on “Design Star: Next Gen,” a new competition series inspired by “Design Star.” Set to premiere in 2021, the six-episode series will be hosted by Allison Holker Boss and will feature eight finalists who are talented designers, renovators and social media brand-builders as they compete in intense weekly challenges. The  judging panel will include head judge Jonathan Adler, designer Lauren Makk and a rotating cast of celebrity experts. In the end, only one competitor will win $50,000 and their very own HGTV show.

The logline: the series will be shot in an isolated “design hub” community away from typical production locations. Each competitor will be given a design lab – a house-like space that must be reimagined for each challenge. The community also will provide everything the competitors need, including a design center for sketching, a construction workshop to build their creations, as well as a fully stocked furniture and styling warehouse so they can focus on making appealing spaces.
