A&E plans show that will give one couple their dream house.
A&E is planning a reality TV show that will follow couples who come “together to plan, design, build and decorate their dream house.”

Not unlike UPN’s cancelled Under One Roof, the winning couple gets to keep the house. The others, however, will have been eliminated week by week, leaving them with no house.

Producers tell The Hollywood Reporter that the show “celebrates the efforts of a group of like-minded individuals who work together to accomplish the same goal.”
