When we first wrote up the real estate listing for the Brady Bunch house, we thought it was a cute little story and we would never hear a conclusion to it.
Little did we know. We were so innocent last week.
Over the weekend the Brady Bunch house buyer was revealed to be Lance Bass of NSYNC… until it was revealed it wasn’t Lance Bass of NSYNC. At that point it was said to be a studio, with many believing it was CBS that owns the right to the classic series. There were a few out there speculating that it was either Netflix or Amazon, but only because both companies appear to spend money with abandon.
Now comes news that the Brady Bunch house buyer has yet again been revealed and it is… HGTV.
Speaking on a conference call with investors on Tuesday morning, Disocvery Inc. CEO David Zaslav revealed that HGTV had purchased the Brady Bunch house. “I am excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and will restore the Brady Bunch home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can,” Zaslav said. “More details to come over the next few months, but we will bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories with this beloved piece of American TV history.”
It’s an interesting concept, and not one many people probably considered.
To be clear, Zaslav said “1970s glory,” and nothing specific to the Brady Bunch version of the house. As the real house lacks a second floor, that would be problematic to say the least.
HGTV will announce its plans for the house at a later date.
