Mr. T's New Show I Pity the Tool Coming to DIY; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of March 23, 2015)

Mr. T - I Pity the Tool

Mr. T, instantly recognizable to fans for his Mohawk, gold chains and his iconic role as Sergeant Bosco "B. A." Baracus in the television series The A-Team, will smash outdated spaces to give families beautifully remodeled rooms in the new DIY Network offering, I Pity the Tool. The show joins a roster of celebrity-focused, renovation-themed series on the network, including The Vanilla Ice Project (Vanilla Ice), Daryl's Restoration Over-Hall (Daryl Hall), The Shatner Project (William Shatner) and Rev Run's Renovation (Rev Run from Run DMC). In I Pity the Tool, nothing gets in Mr. T's way. Outdated houses are no match for him, his arsenal of tools and his construction team of tough guys. In each episode, he and his team, which includes HGTV Design Star winner and interior designer Tiffany Brooks, break down walls and tear out old rooms to give a family a hefty home makeover. The show is slated to premiere in 2015. Stay tuned for a premiere date.
