PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

A new show will make its debut this fall and our parent company Raycom Media is producing it.

It's called Fix It and Finish It and the show focuses on renovating homes and outdoor projects. The Fix It and Finish It crew spent a very hot and humid day Tuesday at 306 Walker Street in Prattville.

John Bechard didn't quite know what to think when the work crew rang his doorbell around 6 in the morning.

"I was absolutely surprised," said Bechard.

But Bechard remembered his grandson submitted an application to the Fix It and Finish It show to do something with the backyard. Bechard's home was chosen and so beginning at 7 Tuesday morning the team of 20 or so started the back-breaking work of putting together a patio and deck, one concrete paver at a time.

Hollywood actor Antonio Sabato, Jr., is the host of the new show.

"This yard is going to look like a million bucks after we get finished with it. New pavers, new plants, new paint, a patio and a deck," said Sabato.

Sabato had no doubt Mr. Bechard will be pleased when they're finished.

"It's amazing. I don't know how I will be able to thank these people," said Bechard. 

As part of the deal Bechard had to leave his home for much of the day so he wouldn't spoil the 'reveal' at the end.

WSFA 12 News was not allowed to publicly show the finished product because the new doesn't air until the fall.

What we can share is a job like this one typically takes a week, $15,000 worth of work in just one day.
