As the massive renovation continues at The Brady Bunch house, HGTV is looking to America's biggest Brady fans to help it complete the design of the famous television family home. Before A Very Brady Renovation premieres in September, fans who own vintage furniture and d├ęcor items true to the original TV series are encouraged to contact HGTV via social media for a chance to see the special items featured in the series. High-demand items for The Brady Bunch home reno include the living room couch and credenza, Greg's attic radio, the front door handles and several of the home's legendary tchotchkes, such as the horse statue, fish trivets and stuffed animal giraffe. A complete photo gallery of the sought-after items is available at HGTV.com/Brady, as well as details for how to contact the network team about an item, including by direct message on HGTV's social media channels. Fans are asked to post a photo or video of the item on HGTV's Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the #verybradyreno hashtag.

A Very Brady Renovation will feature a full-scale overhaul of the world-famous Brady Bunch house in Los Angeles. Exterior shots of the real house were often used to establish a sense of time and place for the Brady family. In the coming months, HGTV will execute a show-stopping transformation by adding 2,000 square feet to its original footprint—all without compromising its instantly recognizable street view. The house will be replicated to include the floating staircase, the orange-and-green kitchen and the kids Jack-n-Jill bathroom. The Brady Bunch house will forever hold a special place in television history and American pop culture.


Tacoma FD

truTV has announced the premiere dates for a new block of back-to-back laughs this spring, kicking off on Thursday, March 28 with Impractical Jokers, returning for its eighth season of hysterical hijinks at 10:00pm ET/PT, followed immediately by the series premiere of Tacoma FD at 10:30pm ET/PT. Now entering its eighth season on truTV, the unscripted Impractical Jokers television series features four comedians and lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other out amongst the general public with a series of hilarious and outrageous dares. Following the Season 8 premiere of Impractical Jokers, truTV will introduce its newest original series, Tacoma FD. On the heels of the breakout theatrical release of Super Troopers 2, co-creators and stars Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme will be donning new uniforms in the half-hour comedy, which is set in a firehouse in one of America's rainiest cities. Light on blazes that need extinguishing, this crew keeps themselves entertained with creative competitions, friendly first responder rivalries, and bizarre emergency calls. Leading firehouse shenanigans in the 10-episode first season are Chief Terry McConky (Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme), alongside an eclectic crew played by series regulars Hassie Harrison (Southbound), Eugene Cordero (Black Monday, The Good Place) Marcus Henderson (Get Out, Homecoming), and Gabriel Hogan (Heartland).

Rounding out the cast of Tacoma FD are guest stars Suzy Nakamura (Dr. Ken), who portrays an eager councilwoman with no patience for tomfoolery, and Heather Mazur (Insecure) as Chief McConky's wife and Captain Penisi's sister. Jimmy Tatro (American Vandal), Maria Russell (Lights Out) and Jamie Kaler (My Boys) will also guest star as members of the Tacoma Police Department (PD), Tacoma FD's first responder rivals. Additional guest stars throughout the season include: Super Troopers co-creator and star Paul Soter – who also serves as a writer and consulting producer for Tacoma FD – as well as JD Pardo, Nat Faxon, Martin Starr, Will Sasso, Christopher Neiman, Kevin Pereira and the Impractical Jokers' own Brian "Q" Quinn.
