“George to the Rescue,” NBC’s newest half-hour home improvement show debuting on September 25th has tapped GazeboCreations.com to provide a complete pergola system for the second show in the series. On October 9th, GazeboCreations.com will partner with NBC to create a dream backyard including an 8′ x 12′, 4-beam vinyl pergola to surprise a deserving homeowner and his wife.
Airing on NBC’s owned and operated channels in the top ten markets of the nation, “George to the Rescue” is based on viewers writing in and the show responding by helping deserving individuals improve their households. This backyard make-over is in response to an email written to the show by the wife, Debbie, asking the show to come to the rescue of her husband, John. As a past recipient of the presidential service award, John is a stroke victim suffering from right side paralysis and impaired speech. With his limited mobility and sensitivity to the sun, John now avoids leaving his home.
“We are looking for interesting and emotionally engaging stories involving good people/families that have had bad luck,” said Andrew Scerbo, show producer. “In Debbie’s email, she mentioned John’s love of the outdoors and his desire to escape his home; however, he burns easily in the sun.” Shade became a crucial factor in the design plan and the reason the producer approached GazeboCreations.com regarding their pergola kit that can be equipped with Shade FX, a retractable awning system.
“We are honored to participate in creating a functional outdoor space for John,” said Tim McTighe, president of GazeboCreations.com. “Being able to help create a covered porch for John and Debbie to enjoy together is a privilege.” The episode to feature the pergola is being filmed in Seaside Heights New Jersey.
The vinyl pergola, one of the top selling structures from GazeboCreations.com, is weather resistant and durable in the outdoor elements. The four beam design creates an open yet shaded exterior space. By drawing the Shade FX retractable awning, the sun can be completely blocked and provide a safe area for outdoor enjoyment.
Television exposure is not a new concept to GazeboCreations.com as the company partners frequently with other home improvement and national television shows. Recently Gazebocreations.com supplied a beautiful gazebo for the taping of Live! with Regis and Kelly during the show’s remote broadcast on Prince Edward’s Island. “Our involvement with shows such as this comes with the same focus as our work with residential consumers,” said Hazel Jennings, marketing representative for GazeboCreations.com. “We answer a call to provide the solution to an outdoor living space designed to the exact requirements of the homeowner.” GazeboCreations.com also works with municipalities, educational institutions, resorts and parks by providing structures from arbors to amphitheaters as well as expansive lines of outdoor furniture that can be customized to fit each property’s unique needs.
