Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A weekly, syndicated variation on the popular ABC reality series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Home Team was hosted by baby-faced ex-Apprentice contestant Troy McClain. In each hour-long episode, McClain and the series' producers enabled a deserving family to get their first real home. The show handled ten percent of the down payment and a year's worth of mortgage payments; then, a team of family members and friends fixed up the place from top to bottom before anyone moved in. Small wonder that the series' tagline was "Experience the American Dream." In most cities, Home Team debuted on September 26, 2005; the series was also given international play as a weekly fixture of the WGN Superstation.
