Melissa McCarthy and Jenna Perusich's labor of love

Home makeover aficionados might remember this acting duo in HGTV's other hit, "Celebrity IOU," which proved to be an astounding success for the network. Now, the cousins are ready to jump back into the home reno game and customize the houses for unsuspecting folks who are nominated by their loved ones. As Melissa McCarthy told Scott Brothers Entertainment, "When my cousin, Jenna [Perusich], and I did 'Celebrity IOU' for her parents, we saw first-hand what a positive impact a home renovation can have in a world where so much emphasis is on the negative, we wanted to show how amazingly kind people can truly be. 'The Great Giveback', which is produced by Melissa McCarthy and Drew and Jonathan Scott, will introduce you to some remarkable people who have given so much of themselves to others. We can't wait to shine the light on them." Plus, she adds, "Also, if I gut another room in my house, Ben will leave me."

So it sounds like fans can look forward to many heartwarming moments with McCarthy, Perusich, and their crew along with some incredible home renovations.
