Home improvement series spotlights communities and neighbors coming together
Complete with heartwarming stories and lots of smiles, home improvement guru George Oliphant will be joined by deserving families in the spring run of George to the Rescue. The eighth season of the popular series returns to NBC stations on Saturday, March 25 (check local listings for scheduling).
“For eight unforgettable seasons, George Oliphant and the entire George to the Rescue team have brought communities and neighbors together to help families in need,” said Meredith McGinn, senior vice president of LX.TV, the lifestyle branch of NBCUniversal. “George to the Rescue’s new season will shine a bright spotlight on several of our most memorable home projects yet, further illustrating the awe-inspiring power of renovation.”
Spotlighting deserving families facing home renovation challenges they can’t tackle on their own, Oliphant and his contractor and design team spearhead beautiful, meaningful, practical, and life-changing transformations that will come to life before viewers’ eyes.
“It’s all about lending a helping hand and strengthening local communities,” added Oliphant. “George to the Rescue goes beyond transforming homes. Through the power of renovation, we are transforming the lives of families in need.”
Spring run highlights in the Long Island area include:
- Westbury: George completes a challenging kitchen transformation for a Long Island family and their beloved, three-generation household.
- Garden City: George rescues inspirational Garden City homeowners and their brave daughter with microcephaly.
Episodes begin with homeowner requests for help and George’s surprising arrival. Although each renovation presents dynamic challenges and unforeseen obstacles, George’s team triumphs and provides an unforgettable experience for deserving families and viewers.
