Renowned designer Nate Berkus hosts NBC's bold new one-hour reality competition series "American Dream Builders."
Showcasing the talents of the most accomplished designers and home builders in the country, "American Dream Builders" will pit 12 worthy contestants against one another in a high-stakes competition designed to push everyone's creative reach. The show will celebrate creativity and style while revealing magazine-worthy home transformations.
With each weekly episode, two teams will take on a brand new project and be asked to redesign and renovate the space from the inside out - all in a matter of days. From Spanish to Tudor to midcentury modern, the designers will be expected to produce sweeping home renovations that bring a fresh, modern sensibility while remaining true to the home's innate charm and design characteristics.
Joining Berkus on the show as judges are Eddie George and interior design expert Monica Pedersen.
George is a former Heisman Trophy winner (Ohio State University) and NFL all-pro (Tennessee Titans) who has now become a renowned landscape architect. Pedersen has appeared on several segments for "Today" as well as served as host on such HGTV shows as its popular "Designed to Sell."
Berkus, George and Pedersen will review the finished work and determine which team achieved the best results. After facing the panel of judges, the losing team must send one member home.
In the finale episode, the last two designers will take on renovations for two impressive Southern California homes, bringing their unique vision to life.
"American Dream Builders" is produced by Universal Television in association with Steele Mill Productions, Inc. Berkus serves as executive producer along with Tom Shelly ("Love in the Wild," "Survivor") and Jason Ehrlich ("Ready for Love," "The Bachelor").
