Contractor Mike Holmes and Son Mike JR Star In New Season Of DIY Network’s ‘Holmes & Holmes’ On July 10
Professional contractor Mike Holmes and his son, home renovation expert Mike Jr., will tackle more father/son projects when the new season of DIY Network’s Holmes & Holmes premieres on Tuesday, July 10, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Armed with Mike Sr.’s personal mission to “make it right,” the 12-episode season will star the pair as they buy and transform three tired properties into dream homes. But it won’t be all business during this family affair as Mike Jr. plans his wedding to fiancée Lisa throughout the season.
“I’ve worked for my dad for well over a decade and now we’re teaming up and going into business together,” said Mike Jr. “This paired with planning my wedding is a new—and challenging—experience for me.”
The series also features the struggles of working with family. In the premiere episode, Mike Jr. was surprised to learn his dad had already purchased the house that will be their first project as official business partners. After the shaky start, the duo agrees to work on the ground rules of their new partnership so they can get along and turn a profit.
“I’ve been in construction more than 35 years, and I’ve seen it all and fixed it all,” said Mike. “The best part is I’ve been able to teach my son everything I know along the way. And now getting to be business partners with him is something I always hoped would be in the cards for us.” (HGTV)
