Luxury dream homes in the Okanagan will be the star of a new cable TV series pilot.
CASSstruction will give viewers an inside look at the development process of creating a custom built, million-dollar Okanagan dream home.
“The pilot is truly character-driver with the aim to showcase personalities, both contractors and clients, as our cameras capture the entire construction process, from a dirt lot to a dream home,” said Render Digital Media producer Pamela Tomlinson. “You can look out and see a home being built, but if you can find the creativity in it and that spark, you can then tell a story. It’s something I’m very passionate about.”
Render Digital Media is a Kelowna-based production company.
The cameras follow Casidy deVeer, a design consultant with residential and commercial construction company 3rd Generation Homes, along with her general contractor Gerald deVeer and their team as they take a new homeowners vision and make it into a reality.
The pilot features three families who are building in some of Kelowna’s newest developments, McKinley Beach and The Creeks, and a luxury home on Lakepointe Drive. Viewers will be introduced to a Yellowknife couple and their young son as they see the progress made on their new home for the first time in three months.
“People save up a long time to build their dream home and I am so fortunate to play a part in making that come true,” said deVeer. “Pam has done a brilliant job capturing those emotions on film. With every unique homeowner comes an equally unique home and no two are ever the same, that truth comes out on the screen.”
Tomlinson hopes to pitch the pilot to HGTV, Cottage Life, and W Network in early 2016.
