Would you work on a Murder House Flip?

Once upon a time, reality TV home renovation shows featured a guy like, say, our Editor-in-Chief Jim Caruk, dealing with the trials and tribulations of, ahem, a real reno. But as reality television has continued to grow in popularity, the storylines to these shows seem to get further and further detached from reality.

Once upon a time, reality TV home renovation shows featured a guy like, say, our Editor-in-Chief Jim Caruk, dealing with the trials and tribulations of, ahem, a real reno. But as reality television has continued to grow in popularity, the storylines to these shows seem to get further and further detached from reality. Case in point: Murder House Flip.

Take the new series called Murder House Flip, launching soon on a streaming service called Quibi. As the name suggests, the show revolves around renovating homes where murders have taken place. To up the TV dramatics, apparently the homes were the site of somewhat notorious crimes but have been abandoned for some time. Talk about a killer project.

The final step in each reno? They bring in a “spiritual healer” to cleanse the home before the new owners move in.
