Star of HGTV Canada’s Decked Out, Disaster Decks, Deck Wars, Custom Built, and co-star of Canada’s Handyman Challenge and Home to Win, Paul Lafrance embarks on an all new adventure with his groundbreaking new series, Backyard Revolution.
After spending nearly a decade creating reality TV shows that follow the design and transformation of outdoor and indoor living spaces, this new series will not only give fans of Paul the creative “wows” and laugh-out-loud humour they’ve come to expect from him, but also the most raw and vulnerable depiction of what REALLY goes on behind the scenes on one of his most challenging projects yet!
“Designers and builders don’t normally like to broadcast their mistakes,” says Paul. “For me, that’s what people want to see: The nitty-gritty stuff that contractors, professionals, and homeowners go through; the arguments, miscalculations, and delays that often get glossed over in the reality tv world.”
The first season of Backyard Revolution follows Paul through the process of an iconic build in a way never before seen in lifestyle television. It chronicles the ups and downs of the job, as well as struggles on and off camera for Paul, the crew, and even the homeowners.
This epic project includes a multi-level, curved composite deck, a curved outdoor kitchen, a putting green, a pond with waterfalls, and a revolutionary four-season room that boasts a state-of-the-art golf simulator.
“The best way to describe it is Decked Out meets Dead Pool,” says Paul. “It’s authentic, it breaks the fourth wall, and it’s funny as hell.”
Look for Backyard Revolution in Spring 2019.
