Creators, Course Changers, Dreamers, and Risk Takers that’s what Chip and Joanna Gaines are calling the storytellers on their new Magnolia Network. These entrepreneurs are sharing life stories and fulfilling dreams. They are inspirational regular people pouring their hearts and souls into others. It’s a network with a lot of TLC and it's launching in a few days.
The Gaines premiered some of their shows on discovery+ several months ago. As an avid Fixer Upper fan, I couldn't wait to watch them. Come with me on a journey through my favorites.
Imagine the sun is setting as you walk across the bridge; you pause to watch its fleeting rays beam through the vibrant colors of the changing leaves. You make your way to a renovated farmhouse in Freedom, Maine. A few minutes later you are sitting down to a meal you reserved via a postcard lottery and have waited years to experience. Erin French and her team at the restaurant Lost Kitchen have prepared culinary art of locally grown ingredients. Lost Kitchen is more than a story of food, it’s about starting over and making people feel their best.
All episodes of this show are streaming now on discovery+.
Then picture the crowd going crazy as the lights come up on stage and the music connects you with your soul. Home On The Road With Johnnyswim’s Abner and Amanda Ramirez takes us on tour as they travel the country on a bus with their two young children and crew. 15 people on one bus. Oh, and did I mention Amanda was pregnant with their third child? You can watch their journey now.
When the country went on lockdown, the duo pivoted and created home adventures. The Johnnyswim Show captures it all on the couple’s second Magnolia Network show. Both shows are a love story about a couple who are balancing their kids and careers while creating a community.
Connect with the land and dig in the dirt in an urban garden with Jamila Norman on Homegrown. She’s helping families turn their backyards into farms. Erin and Chris on Growing Floret have you reflecting on your first memories of flowers with their show about Floret, a family-run flower farm and seed company. Indulge in how much fun baking can be as Zoë Francois gets creative with sugar on Zoë Bakes. Get up close and personal with Joanna and start your own traditions inspired by her easy to follow recipes on Magnolia Table. Hang with the chickens, cattle, and horses as rancher Elizabeth Poett shares food and ranch life with you on Ranch to Table.
Starting July 15th, you can stream all of Magnolia Network’s shows on discovery+ and their new Magnolia app. In January 2022 they will take over cable’s DIY Network which will then become the new Magnolia Network. Until then, if you already have a discovery+ account, you are all set for the 15th.
