DIY Network will trumpet a new series diagramming high-end custom installation in celebrity homes at the Consumer Electronics Show.
The network said that Hollywood Hi-Tech (working title) host Janna Robinson, special guests that will appear on the series, and leaders from the electronics industry are scheduled to appear at the launch party at Crazy Horse Paris Theater at the MGM Grand on Jan. 6 at 6:30 p.m. (PT).
DIY Network's Hollywood Hi-Tech documents lifestyle-technology expert Robinson as she uses innovative gear to give celebrities' homes the ultimate high-tech makeover. Set to premiere in June, the series will feature reality-TV star Khloe Kardashian and her husband Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom, Entourage's Kevin Connolly and Jeremy Piven, and Transformers star Josh Duhamel. The celebrities themselves will be involved throughout the makeover process, from the initial consultation to the unveiling of the finished room.
"While other TV shows have occasionally included short segments about custom-installation home entertainment, it's never been the focus, much less had an entire TV series devoted to it," noted Ross Babbit, DIY Network's vice president of programming partnerships and special projects. "With the launch of Hollywood Hi-Tech (wt), that is about to change, as we bring the latest and greatest technology for the home to a new, nationwide audience."
