New York [April 16, 2019] With a booming design business, a new husband, a blended family with four kids and a baby boy on the way, real estate expert and designer Christina Anstead, who first gained fame as the co-star of the hit series Flip or Flop, takes the driver’s seat in her new HGTV docu-series Christina on the Coast. Premiering on Thursday, May 23, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the series highlights Christina as she gives clients luxe spaces filled with distinctive design elements and cool SoCal style. Christina starts each episode cruising along the Pacific Coast Highway in a top-down convertible, celebrating a new life that started with her engagement and wedding to Ant Anstead, star of the MotorTrend series Wheeler Dealers. The series also features the couple’s search to find a perfect home for their growing family.
“You may know me from flipping houses,” said Christina. “But there’s a lot more sides to me than that. I’m a mom with a new business venture, a new man and a new point of view. I’m helping people create beautiful new spaces to spend time with their families. There is something wonderful about reinventing someone’s world.”
In the series opener, Christina takes on the most personal project of her career—an extensive home renovation for her childhood friend, Cassie Zebisch. Christina modernizes the home’s kitchen and living areas and, as a special surprise for Cassie, designs a quintessential outdoor patio for hanging with friends. The season also includes a special episode where Christina and Ant give their pool a full makeover and transform their backyard into an outdoor paradise. A refreshing oasis with a tube water slide, outdoor kitchen, bar and hot tub is just the beginning of a spectacular outdoor haven.
A new digital companion series, Christina on The Coast: Unfiltered, gives fans an inside look into the making of the series. The digital episodes will roll out on the HGTV app, HGTV.com, on demand across all platforms and HGTV's YouTube channel each week after the television episodes air. Joined by friends from the comfort of her new home, Christina shares behind-the-scenes footage, recalls favorite scenes and designs from the series, and talks openly about her exciting new life. Visitors to www.hgtv.com/ChristinaontheCoast can find exclusive before and after renovation photos and videos. They also can interact via social media using #ChristinaontheCoast.
