History is giving Home Improvement fans the next best thing to a full-blown reboot, reuniting Tool Time duo Tim Allen and Richard Karn for a building-themed reality competition series, TVLine has learned.
The 10-episode series, tentatively titled Assembly Required, will “spotlight the best and brightest builders from across the country, at their home workshops, as they compete to breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing. This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build it better. In each episode, Allen and Karn will also dive into the unique history around these items to celebrate the men and women who crafted them, and the techniques used.”
Karn will serve as host, executive-producing alongside Allen. Assembly Required is expected to premiere sometime in 2021.
