MTV Greenlights Makeover Parody

May 12, 2005  •  Post A Comment

MTV has ordered 10 episodes of “Trailer Fabulous,” a parody of cable makeover shows. In “Fabulous” a team of design professionals renovates trailer homes. Though the show will poke fun of the genre’s conventions, the makeovers are genuine.

“The idea here was to take the home makeover show format and turn it inside out, to poke fun at the conventions of the genre and tell our stories in a unique way,” said Tony DiSanto, senior VP of production for MTV.

The series is hosted by rap artist Brooks Buford and will debut this summer.
