Style Network announced it has ordered Tacky House, a new reality series that will feature former Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star Thom Filicia transforming rooms from tacky to tasteful.
Each Tacky House episode will follow Filicia and two fellow interior design experts as they attempt to convince a homeowner that a room they personally designed needs a makeover from its disastrous decor.
With the help of one of the homeowner's friends or family members, the homeowner is persuaded and the space is then renovated before being revealed.
"Based on the continued success of Style's Clean House, we are excited to bring viewers the next step in home makeover series," said Style Network president Salaam Coleman Smith.
"Tackiness has definitely met its match in our tasteful host Thom Filicia and we couldn't be more excited to have him in a new series on Style."
Style Network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of the series, which is currently slated to premiere in the spring. It is produced by Lynchpin Productions.
Tacky House isn't Filicia's first Style Network reality series, as he previously hosted Dress My Nest -- which used a person's favorite clothing as inspiration for the design of a living space in their house. The series aired in 2007.
