HGTV Plans to Restore the 'Brady Bunch' House to 'Its Original Glory'

Discovery Inc.'s HGTV network will restore "The Brady Bunch" house back to its "1970s glory" after winning a bidding war against former NSYNC singer Lance Bass.

"One example of our new project for HGTV will speak to those "Brady Bunch" fans on the call", he said on the earnings call. You may have heard that the house from the iconic series was recently on the market in California.

After a huge bidding war that saw former NSYNCer Lance Bass almost win and then lose the bid for the famous house after it went into escrow, another big name has stepped up to claim that precious real estate: HGTV.

The story, according to Bass: An agent "representing the estate" told him that his bid - which was "WAY over" the asking price of $1.885 million - had won, and he celebrated with friends, family and fans.

The property, located in Studio City, Calif., definitely has a huge stake in American TV history.

Michael Jordan responds to Donald Trump's tweet about Lebron James
James is considered by many to be the greatest player in basketball history, rivaled by Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan . This is the second recent instance of the first lady has issuing a public statement that seems to counter the president.

Sources told TMZ that Lance should never have publicly announced that he'd secured the winning bid, because that invited new bidders and offers despite the expired deadline. The final sale price has not been announced. But as Bass detailed in his tweet (depending on your browser, you may need to click on the embedded image to read it in full), they were then told that a "Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio)" wanted the house "at any cost" and they weren't going to be the winning bidders after all. "We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources", he wrote on Instagram.

The home was only used for its exterior in the show. How is this fair or legal?? Bass asked. "How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity? I feel used but most importantly I'm hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome". "I just hope it is not demolished".

Another losing bidder was Gregory Storm, a Hollywood screenwriter and director, who replied to the same Bass tweet that Scott did.

The network, which specialises in home improvement and gardening shows, will "restore the home to its 1970s glory", Discovery said. The McCallisters are both deceased and their children are selling the home.

Listing agent Douglas Elliman called the 2,477-square-foot home the "second most photographed home in the United States after the White House".
