In a new episode of HGTV’s ‘Celebrity IOU,’ premiering Monday, May 30, at 9 pm, Anthony Anderson will pour his heart and soul into a life-changing home makeover for his younger brother and closest friend, Derrick. Derrick is an ER trauma nurse and first responder who, according to Anthony, worked diligently on the front lines to aid individuals in his town throughout the pandemic. Real estate and restoration professionals Jonathan and Drew Scott will collaborate with Anthony, the Multi Golden Globe® Award, BET Award, and Emmy Award-nominated and multi NAACP Image Awards-winning actor and producer, to reconstruct Derrick’s house from the crawl space to the roof. The pair is ready to assist him in giving his brother’s home a functioning open space concept with a high-end flair.
Anthony expresses his satisfaction and admiration for the man Derrick has become. It means a lot to him to be able to help Derrick in this way. What better way to honor him and his family than to provide him with the house he deserves? During the preliminary house tour, Anthony discusses his remodeling wishlist with Jonathan and Drew, which includes getting rid of the small rooms, installing a new heating and cooling system, and fixing the leaking roof. Following the demolition, Anthony and the brothers install high-quality windows, slick flooring, and modern cabinetry to provide Derrick with a spa-like bathroom, chef’s kitchen, and big living space where his family can spend quality time together. Anthony is overjoyed to be able to present such a thoughtful gift because he sees Derrick as an unsung hero who should be lauded for his service.
