Magnolia Network, Discovery’s joint venture with Chip and Joanna Gaines, makes its cable debut tonight, marking the official rebranding of the DIY Network. And to celebrate the network’s debut and their return to cable, the Gaineses have released the original Fixer Upper casting tape from 2012, never before seen by the public. You can watch it below.
Magnolia ushers in the new era at 9 PM ET with the cable premiere of Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, starring the Gaineses. The channel will now be home to all existing Magnolia Network original series.
Magnolia Network will also feature episodes of The French Chef, the classic cooking show hosted by Julia Child, along with episodes of home improvement series This Old House and Ask This Old House./em>
“It wasn’t long ago that watching TV meant time together as a family. It was a place where people of all ages could gather and be informed, entertained, and inspired by the kind of honest, authentic programming that brings people closer,” said Chip and Joanna Gaines. “That’s what we’ve set out to build with Magnolia Network, and we’ve been amazed by the stories and storytellers we’ve found, people whose lives are living proof that our world is full of beauty, hope, courage, and curiosity. We can’t wait to see these stories brought to life on cable, and we’re hopeful about the impact it might have—to help reclaim the best of what television can be.”
