Q&A: the story behind the 'Property Brothers'

About the 'Property Brothers'

Related News/Archive

I'm a big fan of the TV show Property Brothers. What can you tell us about the stars?

HGTV's Property Brothers stars identical twins Jonathan and Drew Scott, who help people buy and then remodel homes.

Drew is the real estate agent who helps find the properties and negotiates a price. Jonathan is the contractor who helps design and direct the renovations and does some of the dirty work.

The brothers, 34 and both single, grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, and had dreams of being actors. In 1997 they were watching a late-night TV show Make Millions in Real Estate and decided to give it a try. They started in Calgary and expanded to Vancouver and Las Vegas. In 2009 they connected with HGTV. In addition to Property Brothers, they star in the show Buying and Selling, in which they follow homeowners who plan a renovation in order to sell their home.

The brothers do not charge for their time, and the people on the show pay for the renovations, though the production company usually kicks in about $10,000, they said in a recent interview.

Looking for 'Eleventh Victim'

I was so looking forward to watching Nancy Grace's movie The Eleventh Victim. Somehow to my disappointment, I missed it. Usually Lifetime plays a movie over and over, but not this time. Is there any chance it may ever play again?

Lifetime has yet to schedule another run date for The Eleventh Victim, a movie based on the novel by TV's Nancy Grace that starred Jennie Garth and aired Nov. 3. To check for future showings, go to and look under upcoming airdates for the next scheduled showing. Lifetime tends to show its original movies multiple times, so we think you'll be able to catch it at some point.

'Body of Proof' will be back

When can we expect Body of Proof to come back on TV? I thought I had read that it wasn't being canceled. Tell me it's true and my favorite program will be back on soon.

Body of Proof, which stars Dana Delany as a medical examiner Dr. Megan Hunt, will be back in January on ABC for a third season. There have been some cast changes. John Carroll Lynch (Bud Morris), Nicholas Bishop (Peter Dunlop) and Sonja Sohn (Samantha Baker) are gone. Arriving is Mark Valley as a police detective and former love interest of Hunt.

No new 'Prudence' story for now

I enjoyed Hallmark's movie with Jane Seymour, Dear Prudence. Is Hallmark planning on another movie with this character?

"We are not presently developing other story lines for the Prudence character, but we are always in business (or hope to be) with Jane Seymour," Hallmark publicist Pam Slay told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
