FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ABC’s EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION SEARCHING FOR

DESERVING FAMILIES

HOLLYWOOD, CA – MAY 27, 2011

Do you know a family whose home deserves an Extreme Makeover, or a family who

simply deserves a home? If so, the producers of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home

Edition want to hear from you.

Ty Pennington and his crew have been all across the map and now they want to drive

that famous bus to OREGON!

“We are looking for the deserving people and inspiring families that America can really

root for,” says Supervising Casting Director Adam Drucker.

What does it take to be picked for an Extreme Makeover? "We're looking for those

special people who have amazing strength of character and never give up. Whether it’s

keeping their chin up in really tough circumstances or going out of their way to help

others. We want to help people whose stories have really affected their community or

made a big difference in other people's lives.” Drucker added: "There are a lot of people

who are heroes to those around them because of the way they inspire others and quietly

serve their communities on a daily basis."

The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition producers are looking for families whose homes

desperately need to be rebuilt. “We really want to help families whose homes present

major problems for the family, those big issues that affect the family's quality of life on a

daily basis. We want to find deserving people who just don't have the resources, ability,

or time to fix those serious issues without our help.”

This season Extreme Makeover is also looking for families, who do not own their own

homes, so long as land is available through other sources, a nonprofit, city or county.

Nominations may be submitted by the family or by a member of their community. Each

nomination must include the names and ages of every member of the household along

with a description of the major challenges within the home, and a short description of the

family story. Anyone submitting a nomination should be sure to explain why the

nominated family is deserving, heroic, and/or a great role model for their community. If

possible, include recent photos of the family and home. All nominations must include a

contact phone number.

Please send nominations to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The deadline for nominations is August 12, 2011. Don’t delay!

Each episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is self-contained and features a race

against time to complete a project that would ordinarily take months, involving a team of

designers, contractors and several hundred workers who have just seven days to rebuild

an entire property.

Each episode begins with team leader Ty Pennington’s now-famous “Good morning!”

wake-up call, when he and his design team surprise the unsuspecting family with news

that their home has been chosen to receive a makeover. Viewers not only witness the

unbelievable transformation of the house, but during the final and emotional reveal, they

see how the home makeover has impacted the lives of the deserving families.

The design team includes team leader Ty Pennington, with designers Paul DiMeo, Paige

Hemmis, Michael Moloney, Ed Sanders, Tracy Hutson, Eduardo Xol, John Littlefield,

Jillian Harris and Xzibit.
