Genre: Home Improvement
Premise: Anyone who recalls the 1986 movie ``The Money Pit'' remembers the horrors experienced by Tom Hanks and Shelley Long as they futilely tried to fix up their crumbling new house. Unlike the fictitious film, the renovation nightmares on display in this series are the real deal. Different families are followed as they embark upon their ambitious repair projects, only to encounter stumbling blocks with the elements, treacherous terrain, opinionated contractors and shrinking wallets. Despite the headaches and hassles, the families fight on to achieve the dream home they always wanted.
