HGTV has ordered the new eight-episode home renovation series “Rico to the Rescue” (working title), starring builder Rico Leon as he steps in to help Denver homeowners salvage renovations that have gone off the rails. Driven by his parents’ past experience with a crooked contractor, Rico is an advocate for desperate families who need an empathetic expert to fix their stressful situations. The logline: In each episode, he and his skilled team will tour the house to assess the projects, work to resolve issues with the builder, and create a renovation and design plan to turn the construction nightmare into a beautiful home.

“Nobody wants to get stuck in a home that isn’t working for them due to work that wasn’t done right,” said Loren Ruch, group senior vice president, programming and development, HGTV. “We all want someone honest and trustworthy like Rico to show up at our door when we need a renovation rescue.”

“Rico to the Rescue”, which will debut on an undisclosed date in 2023, is produced by Watt Pictures.
