Magnolia Network decided to return “Home Work” to its programming after initially withdrawing the show due to complaints by owners about the quality of work done by the contractors who host the unscripted series.
Investigation by Magnolia, Discovery’s joint venture and lifestyle experts Chip and Joanna Gaines, found no “malicious or malicious intent” involved in the complaints and the show will resume airing in a few weeks after the the network will have helped to resolve these complaints. Home Work is hosted by Utah-based home renovators Andy and Candis Meredith.
“Magnolia Network is dedicated to sharing hopeful and authentic stories,” Magnolia Network president Allison Page said in a statement Thursday. “In doing so, we strive to meet people with compassion and approach difficult times with caution and honest understanding. After speaking with homeowners as well as Candis and Andy Meredith regarding “Work from Home” renovation projects and hearing a mix of positive and negative experiences, we don’t think there was any intention. malicious or malicious. Our commitment now is to provide appropriate resolutions for those whose experience with “Work from Home” does not meet the standards of our network. As the ‘work from home’ will revert to Magnolia Network, we recognize the responsibility we have to act on how we can best support not only our talents, but also those who trust them and this brand. “
Last Friday, Magnolia Network temporarily removed “Home Work” from its range after several homeowners alleged their homes were damaged during renovations. Magnolia, the linear and streaming channel curated by the stars of “Fixer Upper,” had a booming linear launch on January 5th.
Home Work, hosted by Andy and Candis Meredith, focused on renovating homes in the Utah area. But when at least three homeowners featured on the show came out on social media this week with allegations of damaged homes, long delays and off-budget renovations, Magnolia Network decided to remove the show from its programming.
