DIY Network will focus on Philadelphia real estate renovation for an upcoming series following a successful pilot, the network announced this week.
The station has picked up Philly Revival for six 30-minute episodes, according to a release. Formerly known as Philly Street Flippin' (thank the lord for name changes), the show follows realtor, designer, and Hestia Construction president Rachel Street, who focuses on the renovation of century-old homes.
The show's pilot premiered on DIY Network early last year, and featured the renovation of an East Passyunk home that Hestia Construction worked on at 1042 Tasker St. It's air date, March 25, was special for Street, who wrote on Facebook at the time that Philly Street Flippin' debuted on her late father's birthday.
"While he is not here with us to celebrate, this coincidence is so special to me because he is the one that got me started in the real estate business," Street wrote.
A premiere date for Philly Revival's first season has not yet been announced. In addition with the show, DIY Network also picked up series including Hidden Potential, which focuses on Southern California, the Galveston, Texas-set Saving Galveston, and Best House on the Block out of Washington, D.C.
