Former Apprentice TV Show star has new show

After hearing the dreaded words, "You're fired," former apprentice star, Troy McClain, gets to deliver a more positive phrase, "You're home." As host of a new reality series, "HomeTeam," McClain gets the chance to give some very deserving people a head start at achieving the American dream of homeownership. Debuting this week, "HomeTeam" surprises unsuspecting individuals or families with their first home. In each episode, McClain tells the intimate background story of each family's challenges and dreams, through home videos, photographs and interviews from family & friends. Then, at the end of the show, tears fall at the emotional unveiling of the American Dream.
In the premier episode, the recipient, Dedria Seay, is a first grade teacher and single mother from Florida. Dedria has a very busy life, yet she always finds the time to help her students in need or spend time counseling their parents. With a minimal salary, Dedria has stayed true to her strong will. She saves every penny she can to fulfill her long time dream of owning a home. Dedria's church community, fellow teachers and new neighbors join together with HomeTeam and host, Troy McClain, who gets to tell Dedria that the beautiful house in front of her eyes is actually her very first home.
Co-Executive Producer, Robert Scanlon, a 25 year veteran of the television industry and winner of eight Emmy Awards, says, "HomeTeam is an hour of television that exemplifies what makes America great. We get to see people come together to lend a hand for someone deserving. It's an emotional ride for the participants and viewers that elicits smiles, and tears in every episode."
"HomeTeam" begins airing in local markets across the country the week of September 26th. Check your local listings. Families interested in being on the show can register at
