Associated Broadcasting Company in the Philippines has ordered a 12 episode first series to run on local channel TV5. The show will be produced in local language Tagalog and will go out as monthly specials.

Other locally produced versions include Brazil’s “Extreme Makeover: Social Edition,” which came to the aid of not just single families but entire communities. 

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has for many years been one of Endemol’s most successful and talked about shows and we’re bringing it to Asia for the first time with great pride,” says Arjen van Mierlo, chief executive officer of Asian operations for Endemol. “It is a feel good format on a huge scale and I’ve no doubt audiences here will become immersed in it, just as they have around the world.”
