William Shatner’s homne renovation show, that we originally reported on back in March, is set to premier on DIY Network on Thursday, October 23, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Shatner will act as the project manager of his own home remodel in the six-episode series which chronicles the transformation of his an wife Elizabeth’s Los Angeles home.

“I bought this house when I finished Star Trek. I jogged by it every day and thought it was beautiful,” said Shatner. “One hundred years ago, the original home was a one-room hunting lodge. Over the decades, it was expanded into a family home and then I bought it in the 1970s.”

Press Release:

TV ICON WILLIAM SHATNER STARS IN DIY NETORK’S “THE SHATNER PROJECT”

New York [For Immediate Release – October 8, 2014] Space – television icon William Shatner knows all about it, but not how to renovate it. In DIY Network’s newest celebrity home renovation series, The Shatner Project, premiering on Thursday, October 23, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Shatner stars in a new leading role: project manager of his own home remodel. The six-episode series chronicles William and his wife Elizabeth as they boldly transform their time-warped house into a shining star.

“I bought this house when I finished Star Trek. I jogged by it every day and thought it was beautiful,” said Shatner. “One hundred years ago, the original home was a one-room hunting lodge. Over the decades, it was expanded into a family home and then I bought it in the 1970s.”

The premiere episode features the Shatners, with the help of a designer and a construction crew, as they gut the kitchen for a complete remodel. After the removal of the old, creaky appliances and a “hateful” ice machine, William and Elizabeth get in on the action by wielding sledgehammers to help demolish the old cabinets, countertops and tile backsplashes. The new kitchen – much to William’s disbelief – features multiple ovens and refrigerators.

“The reason I want more appliances is because we entertain a lot,” said Elizabeth. “We often have upward of 30 people here at a time, and because I do all of the cooking, Bill isn’t exactly understanding this request.”

During the series, produced by Scott Sternberg Productions, the couple renovates their 1970s-style California home, including the front patio area in order to create the perfect place for big family parties, as well as remodel Shatner’s favorite hangout spot, the media room.
