Actor Mike Epps and his wife, Kyra Epps, have partnered with HGTV for a three-episode mini-series that will showcase the couple’s efforts to fix up buildings in his hometown of Indianapolis.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Buying Back the Block will document the Eppses in action as they buy and fix up houses in the city as a family.

Mrs. Epps, a television producer, has a love for interior design, and the couple plans to restore homes in Indianapolis neighborhoods together, including his grandmother’s house. HGTV announced the project with a press release on Tuesday.

“Kyra and I are restoring two homes on the block, one was my grandmother’s house from the 1960s,” said Epps. “Our kids will see us work firsthand, nail by nail, to rebuild these homes and our community. Our goal is to inspire legacy and family for generations to come.

Mrs. Epps shared a picture of the two on Instagram on Sept. 9 with a caption announcing the upcoming series. The 3-episode series will premiere in the spring or summer of 2023.

“We’ve been fixing houses the last two summers. Now excited to say this time around its going to be on @hgtv wow wow wow! Our show- “Buying Back the Block” coming Spring 23’.”
