The series also features the design team of home improvement contractor and television personality Jason Cameron (Man Cave, While You Were Out) and interior designer Sabrina Soto (Design Star, Trading Spaces).
“Whether they’re ‘In The Heights,’ in the end zone, in tribal council or beyond, our Secret Celebrity Renovation stars have wowed America through their work, and now they can give something back to the most pivotal person from their hometown past,” said Bob Horowitz, executive producer of both Secret Celebrity Renovation and The Greatest #AtHome Videos.
“And on The Greatest #AtHome Videos front, coming back for season two, we are building on what we learned in season one – that there are creative masterworks bubbling up everywhere on social media, and with Cedric the Entertainer at the helm, the Friday night audience can’t get enough of them.
