Darius Rucker is hitting the small screen! The Design Network has created an original show starring the multi-Platinum artist titled Rucker’s Reno, which will take place in the three-time Grammy-Award winner’s hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. Cameras will follow along Rucker’s journey in reviving a historic mansion in the heart of the historic city. The empty landmark will be transformed into a homebase for his family to enjoy.
Rucker’s Reno will not shy away from addressing the history of the American South and reflecting on how much has evolved since the days of slavery. The six-part series is available now for an early view exclusively to Samsung TV Plus – Samsung’s free video streaming platforms – before viewing will be available on other services on May 30th.
The country singer/songwriter has a strong love for his Carolina roots as well as an impressive eye for design. Rucker and his team will be restoring the estate one room at a time while also visiting other establishments around the Charleston area. Teaming up with South Carolina Tourism, the series’ Title Sponsor, viewers will get to see some of the most well-known, vibrant spots in the area as well as see Rucker meet up with local chefs, entrepreneurs, fishermen, and friends.
“We are thrilled to have been entrusted to tell this story and work with Darius and his amazing design team,” shares Jason Harris, founder and CEO of The Design Network. “It’s a big moment for our burgeoning network. It’s the perfect project, with the perfect person at the perfect time.”
“It’s always an honor when I get to showcase my hometown of Charleston to the world, and I’m thankful to The Design Network for such a great platform to do just that,” Rucker expressed. “The team on this project was so talented and made it such a fun, creative process from start to finish. I can’t wait for everyone to see the transformation!”
“We know our viewers love all things design and culture, which makes Samsung TV Plus the perfect place for ‘Rucker’s Reno’ to arrive first,” said Takashi Nakano, senior director of content acquisitions and business development for Samsung TV Plus. “We are excited to partner with The Design Network and bring Darius’ inspirational story set in the beautiful city of Charleston to our viewers.”
