My Second Hand Home is a competitive property format centred around the growing trend of refurnishing our homes with pre-loved and upcycled goods.
Presented by Sabrina Grant, the show will come full of tips for anyone wanting to bag a bargain for their home.
The 1x60 minute show will see two first time buyer households go head-to-head over four weeks to see who can furnish their home in style – from the bed to the sofa, the fridge to the bath-tub – but for the least amount of money.
Louisa Compton, Head of News Current Affairs and Sport said: “Buying a home is one of the most expensive things we ever do. This programme will offer up an exciting mix of competitive edge matched with great advice on how to save as much money as possible in order to achieve your dream home.”
Adam Vandermark, Commissioning Editor, News and Current Affairs added: “I am delighted we have commissioned this from Wise Owl in Leeds as they have been fantastic to work with. This unique consumer idea has lots of potential given the boom in second hand goods, and with money saving, sustainability and a competitive spirit at its heart it should do well.”
Wise Owl Films’ Creative Director Mark Robinson continued: “It’s such an exciting time to be working in television in Yorkshire with the opening of C4’s new HQ so we’re delighted to be working with them on these two new projects...
“In a way they’re both very different – the potentially global detective work needed to track down a rare Gucci handbag and the much more local search for a pre-owned sofa to transform a living room, but both hit on a very real trend in consumer sustainability. We’ll want to tell the human stories behind the trend”.
