Ty Pennington Gets New Series: ‘American Journey’ To Debut January 12 On HLN [Video]

Ty Pennington has a new series on HLN. The Extreme Makeover’s host new show, American Journey, will debut on January 12 at 8 pm.

Pennington’s new series will take a look at everyday Americans who don’t quite fit into the 9-5 workday mold. American Journey will travel to communes, the Mississippi Delta, and lobster fishing boats and will also include interviews with celebrities like Morgan Freeman and Robert Plant.

HLN writes in a press release:

“American Journey covers stories of individuals and communities who have found inventive and surprising ways to address today’s challenges by applying the lessons of American pioneers. Hosted by Pennington, the series will follow these fascinating people (part of a growing subculture of entrepreneurs and creative thinkers) as they attempt to re-invent America.”

According to a press release, American Journey will be a 10-episode series that will start next Saturday, January 12 at 8 pm.

Pennington added:

“I’ve covered a lot of ground across America as host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and seen first-hand the resilience of the American spirit regardless of the heavy burdens and obstacles they’ve faced. I’m happy to be part of American Journey and work with HLN to uncover inspirational stories that will surely have a positive impact on viewers.”
