Beyond the Block is a first-of-its-kind television series that goes beyond the typical house hunt, diving deeper into the other important aspects that accompany buying a home — the neighbors, the surrounding businesses, and the community where roots will be planted; the things that really make a place a home. This season on Beyond the Block , Andrew Tyree journeys across the southern U.S., a market that has experienced tremendous growth due to its relative affordability, attracting Millennial and Gen Z homebuyers who bring a fresh perspective and more diverse demographics. Andrew will explore neighborhoods and communities including Richmond, VA; Nashville, TN; Charleston, SC; Atlanta, GA; and Orlando, FL; changing lives along the way.
"We're excited to continue working with Realtor.com® on a second season of this emotional series that gives viewers a window into what matters most to these homebuyers when searching for a place to call home," said Jeff Imberman, Head of Sales and Brand Partnerships at Tastemade. "The first season was beloved by our audience, who recognizes that the search for a home, especially your first home, is very personal and unique to each homebuyer. We are thrilled to be able to tell the stories of five new first-time homebuyers, each with their own wants, needs, and expectations, which we believe our audience will really connect with."
Beyond the Block explores compelling stories of real first-time home buyers as they search for new communities to call home. In Richmond, Texas-transplants Robert and Landry seek out an LGBTQ+ friendly neighborhood where they can build a support system of young professionals. As they search for a centrally located home close to restaurants and boutiques, Andrew shows them how to narrow their search and focus on the lifestyle amenities that are most important to them. Andrew also helps single mom Shae find a new home for a new life stage. In Nashville, he guides Shae's search for a bigger home in a safe, diverse neighborhood that will accommodate her new role as a foster parent. Andrew's personal experience in the foster care system helps him relate to Shae, and he opens her eyes to what is possible when she prioritizes herself, so she's able to be the best mom and foster parent possible.
"We're pleased to work with Tastemade to share season two of Beyond the Block with audiences nationwide, as it really represents our purpose of 'To each their home'," said Mickey Neuberger, Chief Marketing Officer at Realtor.com®. "The series focuses on real, emotional storytelling, and goes beyond the typical challenges of finding a home to explore real issues faced by today's first-time homebuyers. These include identity, achieving work/life balance and parenthood, to find a home that is personalized to each family while building diverse and inclusive communities."
The second season of the Telly Award-winning Beyond the Block will air exclusively on the Tastemade streaming network, which is available across platforms like YouTube TV, Samsung TV Plus, Apple TV, DIRECTV, The Roku Channel, Comcast Xfinity X1, and more. Beyond the Block will also be available on demand on Tastemade+.
