Sunday August 21st sees the TX of My Second Hand Home - a competitive Channel Four property format centred around the growing trend of furnishing our homes with pre-loved and upcycled goods.
The 1x60 minute show sees two first time buyer households in Wales and Northumberland go head-to-head over four weeks to see who can furnish their home in style for the least amount of money. And whoever does the best job wins all the cash back they’ve spent on second hand goods.
Presented by Sabrina Grant, the show comes full of tips for anyone wanting to bag a bargain for their home.
Louisa Compton, Head of News Current Affairs and Sport said: “Buying a home is one of the most expensive things we ever do. This programme will offer up an exciting mix of competitive edge matched with great advice on how to save as much money as possible in order to achieve your dream home.”
Adam Vandermark, Commissioning Editor, News and Current Affairs added: “I am delighted we have commissioned this from Wise Owl in Leeds as they have been fantastic to work with. This unique consumer idea has lots of potential given the boom in second hand goods, and with money saving, sustainability and a competitive spirit at its heart it should do well.”
My Second Hand Home was commissioned for Channel 4 by Adam Vandermark, Commissioning Editor, News & Current Affairs. The programme is produced for Wise Owl Films by James Knight, directed by Imogen Willcocks and executive produced by Mark Robinson. Lucy Smith headed up the development on the project.
