The Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott, have gotten another show that will make them even richer. Their new HGTV show, Celebrity IOU, will be all about celebs giving back to the people in their lives through the magic of home renovation. One of the celebrity guests is Brad Pitt. Yeah, speaking of housing IOUs, maybe Brad should have taken the Property Brothers crew down to the Lower Ninth Ward?
The Scott brothers already have a million TV shows and now they’re getting another one, except this one won’t be about Drew and Jonathan Scott fixing up houses while the audience at home tries desperately not to be blinded by the light reflecting off their teeth.
Variety says that Fox is developing a single-camera comedy series about Drew and Jonathan called It Takes Two. This does not appear to be a made-for-TV adaptation of the 1995 Parent Trap rip-off It Takes Two, starring Steve Guttenberg, Kirstie Alley, and the Olsen twins. It will be based on It Takes Two: Our Story, the 2017 memoir published by Drew and Jonathan. The show will be about two twin brothers who join forces in the real estate market after discovering they’re stronger together than apart. So Property Brothers but with a laugh track.
The show reportedly has a script commitment already, and is being written by Jon and Josh Silberman, who had written for It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Drew and Jonathan Scott will serve as executive producers. Drew and Jonathan already have eight shows, starting with Property Brothers, and most recently Property Brothers: Linda & Drew Say I Do.
It’s not known who will play the twin brothers in It Takes Two. It could be Drew and Jonathan themselves; after all, their HGTV shows are so scripted and corny, a sitcom is the next logical step. But if Fox is going to throw a highly unnecessary TV show at any of the Scott brothers, it should have been the oft-forgotten older brother J.D. Scott. And yes, it would be a reality show about magic called Now You See Me (Please Tell Me Someone Sees Me?).
If you’re into home repair, brunettes, and thick Canadian accents, Drew and Jonathan Scott (Jonathan’s on the left in what appears to be some kind of goth camo tuxedo) are probably hot to you. Drew and Jonathan are suitable hunks for HGTV, but what about primetime? Well, Drew appeared on the 25th season of Dancing with the Stars, and now we’re learning that Jonathan has been courted not once, but possibly four times for The Bachelor.
Another season of Dancing With the Stars (or as it’s known in my house, “Okay, but why is the British version called Strictly Come Dancing?“) will soon be upon us. Stars and the star-adjacent are begging their agents or whoever has a phone with a couple free minutes left on it to get them a spot on the 25th season. Handsome house fixer-upper and aspiring Hallmark movie boyfriend Drew Scott was the first to confirm that he has joined the cast. Great news for anyone who has ever wanted to see a come-to-life male department store mannequin attempt to cha-cha-cha. Another cast member that has been confirmed is former Malcolm in the Middle star and sometime mess Frankie Muniz.
When Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence’s Two Sexy Goofs in Space film, Passengers, came out last December, many hated it. One of the major reasons why people weren’t feeling Passengers was because they found Chris Pratt’s character to be a bit of a creepy stalker. Chris Pratt is surprised that people felt that way.
As one HGTV couple’s marriage crumbles into a pile of dusty plaster and wood lath, the foundation for another HGTV marriage has just been poured. People magazine has announced that last night, Property Brothers Drew Scott, aka the business in the front to Jonathan’s party in the back, got engaged to his girlfriend of six years Linda Phan.
