Home Town is a renovation and design show that made its debut on HGTV in 2016. The show is hosted by husband and wife team Ben and Erin Napier who are locals to the small town of Laurel, Mississippi. The show follows the couple as they help families transform rundown and outdated houses into beautiful homes that reflect their personal style and needs. Amber Hayes serves as the executive producer of the show.

Each episode begins with Ben and Erin meeting with a family who desires to buy a fixer-upper property in Laurel. The couple then works with the family to understand their unique needs, personal preferences, and budget. Ben and Erin then begin the process of transforming the property into a stunning home that the family will love.

The unique aspect of the show is the fact that the renovations are not confined to the interior of the house. Ben and Erin take particular note of the outside of the house and how it can be improved. They will typically work to improve the home's curb appeal by adding fresh paint, trimming overgrown shrubs, and planting flowers to make the exterior more inviting.

After the couple has completed the renovation, the family is invited to see their transformed home for the first time. The reactions of the family members are priceless, and it is apparent that Ben and Erin have not only transformed the physical space but also the lives of those who live in the home.

Home Town is unique from other renovation shows in that the finished product is truly a reflection of the family's personal style. Ben and Erin take extra steps to understand the family's needs, and their design choices are customized to meet those needs. They often incorporate sentimental items from the family's past, like a piece of furniture or a family heirloom, to add personality to the home design.

The show also highlights the couple's design expertise. Ben is a woodworker and craftsman, and his attention to detail is evident in the intricate woodwork that is incorporated into the renovation projects. Erin is a talented artist, and she often creates custom paintings and other pieces of artwork to add a personal touch to the home.

Another aspect of the show that is noteworthy is the community involvement. Ben and Erin are passionate about their hometown of Laurel, Mississippi, and they take pride in contributing to its revitalization. The couple often sources materials and products from local businesses and artisans, and they keep the town's history and unique character in mind when designing homes.

Overall, Home Town is a heartwarming and inspiring show that showcases the power of design and renovation to transform not only a home but also the lives of those who live in it. With Ben and Erin's attention to detail, design skills, and passion for their community, the show is a must-watch for lovers of home renovation and design.

Home Town is a series that is currently running and has 7 seasons (119 episodes). The series first aired on March 21, 2017.
