TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - When bad things happen to good people, Mike Holmes is known for his dedication to step in and make it right. In the brand-new HGTV Canada series Holmes Makes It Right, Mike takes on massive projects and tackles unexpected obstacles as he rescues families and communities from problems they never saw coming. Holmes Makes It Right premieres on Tuesday, October 16th at 9pm ET/PT on HGTV Canada.
This series follows Mike as he challenges himself more than ever. Whether it's completely demolishing and re-building an $80,000 contracting job gone wrong, redesigning and building Toronto's High Park Playground after it was destroyed by arson, or building an accessible outdoor deck and dining area for a teacher paralyzed in a horrible hit and run, there's no project too disastrous for Mike Holmes to make right. Together with the familiar faces of his crew including Damon, Mike Holmes Jr. and Sherry, Mike is putting himself in circumstances that don't just need a contractor, they need a miracle.
"We're thrilled to have Mike Holmes back with a new series, confronting and solving major renovation and construction problems for people in despair - making it right the way only Mike can." said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media.
"To make it right and help these families I go beyond the surface and behind the walls," says Mike Holmes. "For each job in Holmes Makes It Right I'm shocked at what we find. But like every job I take on, we do what it takes to get the job done right."
With his signature commitment to perfection and his quest to make homeowners more knowledgeable about their rights and responsibilities, Mike Holmes is saving people, neighbourhoods and houses with every nail he hammers in Holmes Makes It Right.
