STUDIO CITY (CBSLA/CNN) — After weeks of drama worthy of an episode of its namesake, the winning bidder for “The Brady Bunch” house has finally come forward.
It was revealed Tuesday morning that the cable network HGTV is the new owner of 11222 Dilling St. in Studio City, also known as the iconic house used for the exterior shots of the beloved 1970s series.
David Zaslav, chief executive officer of HGTV’s parent company Discovery, made the announcement during the company’s second-quarter earnings call, a spokeswoman told CNN.
“One example of our new project for HGTV will speak to those ‘Brady Bunch’ fans on the call. … You may have heard that the house from the iconic series was recently on the market in California,” Zaslav said. “I’m excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and we’ll restore the home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can. More detail to come over the next few months, but we’ll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories with this beloved piece of American TV history.”
HGTV later teased the purchase on Twitter: “Guess who has a big project planned for this iconic ’70s TV home? Watch for more clues, coming soon.”
