TLC’s latest makeover experiment will take on the restoration of entire towns. As announced at the Television Critics Association press tour today, “Trading Spaces” designer Genevieve Gorder will travel the country making over small towns using a crew of designers, carpenters and craftspeople in “Town Haul.”

The series has an initial six-episode run beginning with Jefferson, N.Y., and premiering in early 2005.

“TLC has given me the chance to actually move into towns across the country and work with them to recreate their identity,” Ms. Gorder said. “From the baseball team to the church basement to Main Street, this new series is going to demonstrate the power of what design can really do in a very big way.”

Ms. Gorder will continue to appear on “Trading Spaces.”
