Can two parents with four school-age kids drop out of their busy lives and move to a tropical paradise for eight months to rebuild and restore a run-down beachfront resort?
On Island of Bryan, master contractor Bryan Baeumler and his wife and designer Sarah are doing just that.
It's a huge personal and financial gamble and it's going to be the ride of their lives...
After 10+ years of building a construction empire back home, Bryan and Sarah are about to escape the daily grind and embark on an unforgettable family adventure.
While on a recent vacation, they came across a vacant resort on a remote island in the Bahamas.
After falling in love with the area and the locals, Bryan and Sarah decided to buy the resort and bring it back to its full potential, with the end goal of running it as a business.
Bryan, a licensed contractor, and Sarah, with her keen sense of design aesthetics, transform the abandoned 10-acre property into a world-class island oasis complete with 18 luxurious hotel rooms, 22 ocean front villas and a host of breezy resort amenities.
We follow the story of this radical life event for the Baeumlers, from a dream of creating and running a luxury boutique resort in paradise, to the reality of leaving their friends, family and life behind to take on their most challenging build yet.
Comedy Central (DStv 122)
The series centres on filthy rich video store magnate Johnny Rose, his soap star wife Moira and their two kids, über-hipster son David and socialite daughter Alexis, after they suddenly find themselves broke.
They are forced to live in Schitt's Creek, a depressing small town they once bought as a joke.
This is a familiar tale but with fresh characters and a quirky spin - rags to riches in reverse.
The Rose family loses their entire fortune when they are informed they have been the victim of a Bernie Madoff-style Ponzi scheme.
They are left with just one asset - Schitt's Creek - a town that was purchased, in jest, by Johnny as a gift for his son.
The Roses have no choice but to live there in a motel and start again.
As extreme fish out of water, they are forced to confront life without the luxurious amenities they once knew.
