W Networkâ€™s Top Rated Series Love It or List It Expands to Vancouver: Designer Jillian Harris to Co-Host
Corus Entertainmentâ€™s W Network announced today that interior designer and TV personality, Jillian Harris (The Bachelorette Season V, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) will co-host Love It or List It Vancouver. Harrisâ€™ co-host will be announced at a later date. Produced by Big Coat Productions in association with W Network, the west coast spin-off of W Networkâ€™s hit series Love It or List It starring Hilary Farr and David Visentin has been greenlit and is scheduled to launch in winter 2013.
Love It or List It Vancouver will showcase families in B.C.â€™s largest metropolitan city who are struggling with homes that no longer suit their needs. Itâ€™s up to Jillian to put a stop to the wandering eyes of our homeowners, armed with a list of â€œmust-havesâ€ and a design she hopes will persuade them to stay. Meanwhile, the realtor is determined to get homeowners to relocate by taking the homeowners list of â€œmust-havesâ€ and finding them new digs.
Set in one of Canadaâ€™s largest real estate markets, the beautiful Pacific west coast, every episode will take viewers on an emotional rollercoaster as Jillian and her soonâ€“to-be announced co-host implement their plans to battle it out for the homeownersâ€™ allegiance. With renovation there are always setbacks and sometimes it means the homeowners must lose one of their â€œmust- havesâ€ on their list to stay. On the realtorâ€™s end, finding everything the homeowners want in their dream home can be more difficult than originally anticipated. The stakes are high as the homeowners weigh in on the financial and emotional decisions of buying a new home or staying in the renovated one.
