Reality shows based on flipping run-down homes are definitely a popular trend right now. Red Carpet Crash shared that the FYI network will debut their own new, eight-episode series called Zombie House Flipping. Justin Stamper, along with his faithful companion and sidekick Marley the dog, looks for abandoned and foreclosed "zombie houses" that most flippers would run from. Stamper and his Zombie House Flipping team are known as the "Robin Hoods of Real Estate" in the Orlando, Florida area.
"The problem of zombie homes blighting neighborhoods across America is ripped from the headlines," said Gena McCarthy, who is the senior vice president of programming and development for the FYI network. "Once again, FYI is tapping into the social zeitgeist to create a unique and entertaining format in the home genre."
