Anthony Anderson will put his whole heart into a life-changing home renovation for his younger brother and best friend, Derrick, in a new episode of HGTV’s Celebrity IOU airing Monday, May 30, at 9 p.m. ET/PT and also available to stream on discovery+. Derrick is an ER trauma nurse and first responder who Anthony says worked tirelessly on the front lines during the pandemic to help those in his community. To rebuild Derrick’s house from the crawl space to the roof, real estate and renovation experts Drew and Jonathan Scott will join forces with Anthony, the Multi Golden Globe® Award, Emmy® Award and BET Award nominated and multi NAACP Image Awards winning actor and producer, and help give his brother’s home a functional open concept with high-end style.
“I’m happy and impressed at the man Derrick has become,” said Anthony. “It means a lot for me to be able to do this. What better way to honor him and his family than to give him a new home that he so deserves.”
During the initial house tour, Anthony will share his renovation wishlist with Drew and Jonathan, including replacing the leaky roof, installing a new heat and air system, and eliminating the cramped rooms. After Anthony and the brothers knock out the demo, they’ll lay sleek flooring, hang high-quality windows and install modern cabinets to give Derrick a chef’s kitchen, spa-like bathroom and spacious living area where his family can spend quality time together.
“I’m thankful and grateful to be able to give a gift like this to Derrick, because he is truly an unsung hero,” added Anthony. “He is a hero to me and to our family.”
Celebrity IOU spotlights Hollywood A-listers who wield sledgehammers and pick up power tools to help an extraordinary person in their lives get the renovation they need. The series features Drew and Jonathan and their celebrity friends as they inspire, entertain and bring fans to happy tears with deeply personal stories of gratitude.
