Unveiled by HGTV U.S. earlier this week (Oct. 19) alongside 15 other series and pilots for the Discovery-owned network’s 2021 slate, the 10-part, 30-minute series from the Toronto-, Vancouver- and California-based company tracks adult children who still live with their parents as they venture out on their first home-hunt.

Signalling the prodco’s first commission from the U.S. broadcaster, the U.S.-shot show sees Thomas Chenoweth serve as showrunner. Buck CEO and founder Sean Buckley (pictured) is credited as an executive producer on 40-Year-Old Property Virgin, while Buck’s head of unscripted and development Jim Kiriakakis is supervising producer and director of development, scripted, unscripted and branded Emma Fleury Harvey is the show’s creative producer.

“At Buck, we continuously strive to produce original content that showcases our versatility,” Buckley told Playback Daily. “This commission continues our long standing mandate to do just that and we’re excited to be working with a great new partner in HGTV.”

No stranger to unscripted production, the company’s credits also include Merchants of the WildUnder Pressure: 9K and Rich Bride, Poor Bride, to name a few.

Buck’s other recent projects include season two of docuseries Cashed Out for REELZ, which was greenlit this May, and the release of horror feature Making Monsters.
