NEW YORK[Feb. 19, 2018] With its top-rated Sunday fantasy lifestyle programming attracting more than 18 million total viewers to date in 2018, HGTV will add a new title – How Close Can I Beach? – to the night’s lineup. Premiering Sunday, March 11, at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, the 13-episode series will follow buyers who tour coastal towns in hopes of finding the perfect beachside home.
