HGTV Cancels Show With Christian Stars

Religion News Service — HGTV had announced a new series, “Flip it Forward,” planned for October, starring twins David and Jason Benham.
The concept: After a decade of flipping houses for profit, the Benham guys would now help families buy the home they thought they could never afford — a small-scale, personal “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
In each episode, the brothers would find a fixer-upper and “transform it into their forever home — with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way,” said HGTV in the April announcement.
But on Wednesday, May 7, quietly, in a tweet, HGTV said the show will not be happening: “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.”
“If our faith costs us a television show,” the brothers said in a statement on Thursday, “then so be it.”
