Chip and Joanna Gaines to launch TV network
The lifestyle team of Chip and Joanna Gaines will launch their own Discovery-affiliated television network in the summer of 2020.
Discovery CEO David Zaslav announced the Gaines’ channel Wednesday prior to a sales presentation to advertisers. There’s no name yet. It will replace the current DIY network, which is seen in about 52 million homes in the United States.
No programming was revealed, except for reruns of “Fixer Upper,” the HGTV series that launched the Gaines’ media career. Discovery said topics that will be covered include community, home, garden, food and wellness.
