Corkscrew Media launches Paul Brandt’s “BUILD IT FORWARD” TV series

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

On Friday, November 26, 2010, Brookline was proud to be a part of the production launch of Paul Brandt’s new TV series, BUILD IT FORWARD, produced by Corkscrew Media. Approximately 250 guests were treated to a private performance from Paul as well as moving presentations by Habitat for Humanity and Samaritan’s Purse, two major partners of the project. The event kicked off the show’s production, which will take place in Calgary, Cochrane, and an international destination, and wraps up in the spring once seven homes have been built.

The new series will chronicle the emotionally challenging journeys of seven separate families at risk of homelessness who will be receiving a new home. BUILD IT FORWARD moves beyond all other home-building and home makeover shows by pushing the “giving back” envelope. While the recipient family works first hand and receives the goodwill and grace of donations and volunteers in the creation of their new home, they are also required to help build a new home for another family – this time in a developing country.

Brookline is thrilled to be working with Corkscrew Media and the team at BUILD IT FORWARD on this exciting project.

BUILD IT FORWARD is scheduled to air on CMT in 2011.
