HGTV is reaching out to fans of the classic comedy “The Brady Bunch” for help with a project the channel has undertaken to renovate the famous “Brady Bunch” house in Los Angeles.
The move comes ahead of the September premiere of “A Very Brady Renovation,” which will showcase a full-scale overhaul of the house.
“As the massive renovation continues at ‘The Brady Bunch’ house, HGTV is looking to America’s biggest Brady fans to help it complete the design of the famous television family home,” the channel says in an announcement released today. The announcement adds: “Fans who own vintage furniture and décor items true to the original TV series are encouraged to contact HGTV via social media for a chance to see the special items featured in the series.”
“Many of these 1970s items are very rare and hard to find,” said Abbi McCollum, vice president of convergence and social media for HGTV. “We’ve seen an incredible response from Brady Bunch fans across social media since we first announced the series. Now, we need their help to get the renovation of the house just right.”
The announcement adds: “High-demand items for ‘The Brady Bunch’ home reno include the living room couch and credenza, Greg’s attic radio, the front door handles and several of the home’s legendary tchotchkes, such as the horse statue, fish trivets and stuffed animal giraffe.”
A photo gallery of the sought-after items is posted at HGTV.com/Brady. Fans are asked to post a photo or video of the item on HGTV’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the #verybradyreno hashtag.
“If you have or know where to find similar items that appeared on an episode of The Brady Bunch, let us know!” said McCollum.
