The Brady "kids" have been busy all year helping to renovate the Brady Bunch house (well, the Studio City home that served as its exterior shot). You may remember that HGTV bought the house last year and has been updating its interior to look like the Brady home we saw on TV. Well, the show they've been filming, A Very Brady Renovation, has a premiere date: Monday, September 9.
The show's host, Jasmine Roth, was interviewed in The Orange County Register about the project:
...It was completely surreal to be able to work with the Brady kids, and I didn’t know what to expect at first because I was, “OK, are they going to be into this? Are they going to actually swing a hammer? Are they going to be excited? Are they going to remember things?” Because that was part of it, we don’t know the paint colors, we don’t know what stone was used on the fireplace, but being able to research and go back and watch the show and then to have the memories of the six Brady kids, who aren’t kids anymore, to help us was so cool, and everybody was really into it. So that made it so much more fun. They really wanted to work on it, they were super excited to make everything exactly like it was back when they were on the set as children, and for that I couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out.
It’s interesting to see like, the show, it’s been 50 years, to see where everybody’s careers have taken them and all of their various experiences all kind of came back together to work on this project. Mike [Lookinland, who played Bobby Brady] owns a concrete company in Utah, so he was probably the most comfortable around tools. But everybody had their own story, whether they had renovated their own kitchen or their house or they’d helped their kids renovate a house, everybody had their own thing and that experience was super helpful as we went through this project because it was a lot of work. I think we all learned a lot as well.
