The local stars of a breakout cable TV series will have another series by the end of the year, according to HGTV officials.
John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino, the eponymous cousins of Kitchen Cousins and Cousins on Call, Monday got the green light from the home improvement network for a new show called Undercover Overhaul.
The cousins — from Wyckoff and Franklin Lakes respectfully — are currently in production of six one-hour episodes for a show that will feature them completely reinventing "outdated, dysfunctional spaces, and surprising neighborhood heroes with stunning renovations," according to an HGTV statement.
The series is expected to premiere in October.
“Combining the element of surprise with help for deserving homeowners in need of a renovation, Undercover Overhaul is the perfect vehicle to broaden visibility for the cousins,” said HGTV General Manager Kathleen Finch. “A new series showcasing the cousins exemplifies our focus to identify and develop strong talent like Anthony and John, further establishing our dominance in home-related programming.”
Network reps called the show "furiously paced and emotionally-charged."
"The series will follow the duo as they work feverishly, using any means necessary, to finish the job before our hero returns home for the big reveal," according to HGTV.
Colaneri and Carrino's current show, Cousins on Call, currently airs on HGTV on Wednesday at 8 p.m.
