Ready, set, tune in! If you’ve been paying attention at all you know the Buffalo real estate market is red-hot. It’s time to show the rest of the world why. Risky Builders – a pilot about a Buffalo couple who renovates homes in their hometown with a super fun, young aesthetic – is back on the air this Thursday, August 9th and 100% ready to put Buffalo on the HGTV map. Get excited, WNY.

Buffalo natives Chris and Lorissa Naugle have flipped 100+ houses around the city with the help of designer Blair Rusin. Did your ears just perk up? Thought so. This new pilot Risky Builders – if picked up by HGTV – would put a major spotlight on Buffalo and hopefully inspire more building and development across the 716.


Here’s how to make it happen:

If the show receives enough support (ask views and ratings) HGTV will give the green light for a full run of episodes. Cue that Buffalo support system we all know and love!

Building up Buffalo on the big screen would be a city-wide win, and it’s no secret we here at Step Out Buffalo love a hometown win. But first, it takes a team effort. Getting HGTV to sign on comes down to numbers. This data starts and ends with literally *all* of us tuning in.

Come August 9 your job is simple — turn on the TV, or better yet get yourself and your besties to the viewing party at Santora’s Pizza Pub and Grill. History is being made here. Come for the show and stay for the Buffalove vibes, snacks and booze. The show debuts at 11 p.m., meaning there’s tons of time to pre-game before then. Clear your calendars for THIS Thursday at 10 p.m.  

Supporting local dreams is what Buffalo is all about. A community collaboration on this scale could make dreams come true for locals all across the region. Think opportunities on opportunities on opportunities.

For example, an increased need for plumbers, carpenters, roofers, tilers, landscapers, retailers, and lumber yards is major for a growing blue-collar city. Also, this type of exposure has the potential to be life-changing for locally based filmers, sound techs, and production assistants. #winning Plus, we’ll all get to watch insane HGTV-worthy transformations on tv from right here in our own backyard. And IDC who you are, that’s just cool.

Ready, set, RSVP on Facebook!
