THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - One historic home in Thomasville is getting a much-needed makeover on a new HGTV show.

It's called "Saving America... One House At A Time."

The show will film its pilot episode in Thomasville and Dothan, following families who have moved from big cities to small towns.

Folks in Thomasville said the show will bring much more than just curb appeal.

"We all watch HGTV. We see communities featured across the country all the time. And now our community is going to be on HGTV. It's huge! It's really big for us," said Thomasville Main Street and Tourism Executive Director Karen Smith.

She believes the exposure will bring in tourists wanting to experience the town's charm after the show airs this summer.

The show is casted by The Conlin Company. They also cast for popular reality shows like Hell's Kitchen, Utopia, and The Mansion.
