Brooks Atwood On Netflix’s Hack My Home

Netflix’s new show Hack My Home wasn’t so different from other home renovation shows. However, it featured a cast of four experts: Ati Williams, Jessica Banks, Mikel Welch, and Brooks Atwood, who were more than capable of bringing their clients’ dream homes to life. Of course, within the limited budget.

“This is an incredible show that encompasses so many beliefs I have about design and innovation – how messy it is and how many failures you go through and to embrace all of it, failures and all, and collaboration and experimentation and everything. My students know what I’m talking about,” Brooks talked about the show.

Also, he added that much “love and support” went into making Hack My Home. “We had the best of the best people and I want to give a huge shout-out to every single person involved, one way or another, on the show. My love and admiration for the incredible cast! What a blast through tears, laughter, birthday candles, panic attacks, heart attacks, stylish treads, great eats, and lots of hugs,” he wrote on IG.

For those of you wondering if the show’s scripted, the legitimacy of the show can be verified by the impressive credentials of the cast members. For instance, Ati had her own HGTV series, DC Flippers, while Mikel had been hosting Murder House Flip since 2020. As for our star, Brooks, he was an academic in home design and a judge on Disney+’s Shop Class. On the other hand, Jessica, though not as experienced on television, compensated with her MIT degree and notable connections.

Overall, the transformations showcased on the show received positive feedback from homeowners and viewers. The issues faced by the families were relatable, and the experts provide creative solutions that incorporate technology, aesthetics, and convenience.
