W NETWORK CHALLENGES HOMEOWNERS TO BEG AND BARTER THEIR WAY TO A FRESH NEW SPACE ON ALL FOR NOTHING?

All For Nothing? premieres on Thursday, October 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

(Toronto, Canada) This October, Corus Entertainment’s W Network presents the premiere of All For Nothing?, a new original series that pits homeowner against homeowner in a competition to ready their neglected homes for sale. Produced by Mountain Road Productions in association with W Network, this 13-episode, one-hour series premieres Thursday, October 7 at 9 p.m.

Each week, two households looking to put their homes on the market are challenged to fix up their design and repair challenged houses on no budget. The seller with the highest increase in value at the end of two weeks will win and receive the commission-free listing services of an expert real estate agent. But it won’t be easy. Under the guidance of top selling realtor Paul Rushforth, and award-winning designer Penny Southam, homeowners have only two weeks to transform their tired properties into beautiful sale-ready homes, without spending a dime.

In the first episode, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Thursday, October 7, two families, the Hermans and the Awadas, adopt completely different strategies to achieve their home renovations. The Awadas take a slow and steady approach to realizing their design plans, resisting some of Paul and Penny’s advice along the way, while the Herman’s start strong with lots of help, strictly following the design plans – and then some! Can the tortoise overtake the hare in this race?

In episode 2, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Thursday, October 14, Darlene Moore and roommate Chris Curry tackle the huge job of re-siding their city home while Al and Jen Greer take on a number of smaller projects around their country home. It’s right down to the wire in this city home vs. country home battle.
