- Canada’s Most Popular Design Personality Launches ‘Debbie Travis Condos & Homes’ – Searches For a New Chief Designer
This time it’s all about talent…Debbie and Global Television are back for an all-new season of the acclaimed reality series From The Ground Up with Debbie Travis. The stakes are high as Canada’s favourite design star gets set to launch her boldest venture yet, moving into the volatile market of consumer homes…and she’s looking for a Chief Designer to make it happen from the ground up.
The first of 10, one-hour episodes debuts Thursday, May 31 – 9pm ET/PT on Global, as 14 eager protegés are put to the test – all for a chance to land this job of a lifetime. With design backgrounds ranging from interior to industrial, artistic to architectural, talent alone isn’t enough to become Debbie’s Chief Designer. On top of surviving the cut-throat world of design, it will take passion and professionalism to work alongside, and inspire, Debbie.
“Canadians love Debbie Travis, we know this and that’s why Global Television is so excited to bring this show to them again,” said Christine Shipton, VP, Original Programming, Global Television. “This season fans will experience the exhilarating rollercoaster of events as the protegés are pushed to new heights, both creatively and emotionally.”
This season, Debbie will roll up her sleeves and put the onus on her protegés to polish their skills ‘from the ground up’. The protegés will tackle unconventional challenges, from creating “living ads” to summer camp remodeling. With them every step of the way, Debbie will separate the driven from the divas, and the talented from the traditional.
“‘Debbie Travis branded Condos and Homes’ is my biggest and most exciting project yet, so I’m looking for someone who is innovative, creative and exudes pure brilliance. This person has to inspire me and really think outside the box, because what I want to offer the consumer are distinctive, fresh features that will shake-up the design world,” says Travis.
