Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb are back on HGTV — only this time, they’re the designers!

The Brady Bunch stars who appeared on HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation are bringing their skills to the network’s new self-shot show, Design at Your Door.

The social-distancing inspired series, which premiered on June 11, pairs a roster of HGTV designers with families who are ready to tackle home-improvement projects on their own — with a bit of virtual assistance from the experts.

In place of the typical on-site interactions a home renovation would entail, participants are coached through completing the redesigns themselves via video conference. After a design plan is created, all the necessary materials are shipped straight to their door.
