Flipped Off, Russell Hantz’s A&E show, has a debut date

A&E’s Russell Hantz house-flipping series has a new name, Flipped Off, and debut date: April 9. And it also has cast members other than Russell, including his brother, Shawn, and “beautiful and savvy real estate agent, Kristen, … who isn’t afraid to slap some sense into the Hantz brothers when their egos get in the way of making money.”

The show was initially announced as Flipped, and since that May announcement, few details have emerged, and that includes this latest press release, which only really promises fighting: “The brothers butt heads more than a pair of rams in a staring contest.”
