Builder Homesite, a consortium of 35 of the nation’s largest home builders, is launching a new television show to showcase new-home communities and manufacturer’s products. The show, “New Home Lifestyles,” is being piloted in Orlando, Fla., with plans to expand into other markets in the coming months.

Each 30-minute show features profiles of several new-home buyer experiences, and provides information about a builder’s personal philosophy and how specific problems were solved for that client.

Viewers learn about the community where the home is located, and meet manufacturers who can provide information on specific products.

The show’s host is Robin Hartl, a popular and nationally recognized home improvement expert, and former host of the “Hometime” television show.

“What really sets the ‘New Home Lifestyles’ show apart from other builder-focused television shows is that we are engaging viewers by telling the real stories of real home buyers,” said Michael Maxin, director of business development for Builder Homesite, the company that produces the show. “Hi-Definition Television is the perfect medium to bring these homes and communities to life.”

Participating builders include Beazer Homes USA, Centex Corp., KB Home, David Weekley Homes, Lennar and Pulte Homes.

The show content will also be presented online. Two-minute segments from each builder are featured on

Participating builders include: Beazer Homes USA, Centex Corp., KB Home, David Weekley Homes, Lennar, and Pulte Homes.
