NEW YORK (AP) — The DIY television network is proving a comfortable home for rappers turned renovators.
“Vanilla Ice Goes Amish” will debut on the network this year. Network executive Burton Jablin says the former rap star will live with an Amish community in Ohio to learn how they do construction. Vanilla Ice already has a renovation series on the network that will return for its fourth season this fall.
Reverend Run of Run DMC will have a series next year, starring with his wife and three children as they renovate their home.
Keeping with the music theme, DIY will also feature Daryl Hall next year as he renovates a Connecticut farmhouse.
