Building Roots

Beautiful and innovative home renos inspired by stunning natural surroundings get a spotlight in this series.

Starring husband and wife duo Ben and Cristi Dozier, the series features the couple as they build, design and renovate properties in their dreamy hometown of Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

During the series, Ben and Cristi produce one-of-a-kind, highly personalised work that always exceeds their clients' expectations.

In the series premiere, "Bringing the Outdoors In": The Doziers meet new clients from Texas, who just purchased a family home in the mountains.

Inspired by the property's location along the Rio Blanco River and surrounding national forests, Ben and Cristi will pull out all the stops to update the home and maximize its views of the great outdoors.

From an expanded deck outside to a fresh interior with lots of natural light, the clients are astonished by the Doziers' gorgeous designs.

During the episode, Cristi also manages another stunning transformation, turning a drab basecamp for a local horse-riding outfitter into a magical glamping destination for adventure seekers.


Channel: S3
TX Time: 19h30
Genre: Comedy-Drama


Centers on Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles (Jim Carrey), an icon of children's television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him.

But when this beloved personality's family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairytale, fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope.

The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity.

Throughout the season, Jeff begins to push back against the limits of the well-oiled machine that is "Mr. Pickles' Puppet Time," and of his executive producer, Seb.

Seb fears Jeff's mental state could ruin the branding empire they've built, and thus begins preparing the show for a life after Jeff, while Deirdre, the head puppet maker, grapples with her own personal and professional life issues.
