Flip It Like Disick
E! (DStv 124)
Reality Makeover, Reality
E! is moving into the neighbourhood of real estate and luxury renovation with Flip It like Disick, which goes inside the lavish personal and professional world of Kardashian baby-daddy and annoying hanger-on Scott Disick, as he tackles his most extravagant endeavour yet: high-end home flipping and remodeling.
Fueled by Disick's passion for property development, which began almost five years ago when he successfully flipped his first investment, this series follows him and his team.
The team includes former pop singer-turned-interior designer Willa Ford; Disick's best friend Benny Luciano; their all-star short-tempered contractor Miki Moor; Benny's wife and realtor Kozet Luciano; and Disick's assistant Lindsay Diamond.
Led by Disick, the group will convert unique home projects for his celebrity friends and family, including guestrooms, studios and his kids' playhouse at their mother Kourtney's home, as well as transform an ambitious multi-million dollar property in Los Angeles.
