Maureen McCormick is co-starring in a new show titled “Frozen in Time” on the discovery+ streaming service. The show will star McCormick and Dan Vickery. The pair will be renovating southern California homes that are, as the title suggests, stuck in the past.
For instance, the first episode sees the pair renovating a Laguna Beach home with an interior that has been untouched for over half a century. It is their task to bring the house into the 21st century while maintaining the home’s retro feel.
Dan Vickery is a veteran designer. According to his website, Vickery designed over twenty homes in the Portland, Oregon area before moving to Los Angeles in 2009. That year, he was the runner-up as well as fan-favorite on HGTV’s “Design Star” season four. Dan has a Bachelor’s degree in architecture and an eye for design. He will be handling all of the structural changes and the general redesign of the homes.
Maureen McCormick, on the other hand, has an eye for decorating. The bulk of her role will be to seek out stylish furniture and other pieces to help the homes bridge the gap between the past and present.
Maureen McCormick Isn’t New to Renovating Homes
While Maureen McCormick is best known for the role of Marcia Brady, she’s no stranger to getting her hands dirty. She has assisted her husband on several home and rental renovation projects. One thing that McCormick has learned from doing renovations with her husband is that you never know what to expect. She told the New York Post, “We never know what we’re going to walk into. ” with a renovation project.
At the same time, she learned that most clients are looking for the same overall results. “Livable and functional is always what the owners want; usually if you bought the house, you love it because of the year in which it was built — and we want to keep that feeling.”
In the new series, McCormick and Vickery will find the balance between preserving the retro feel of the homes while also bringing the spaces up to modern comfort and design standards.
“Frozen in Time” will not only be a remodeling and renovation show but it will also be a way to look back at vintage homes. Viewers will be able to see how much things have changed in the years since these homes were new. For instance, the home they take on in the first episode has carpet in both the kitchen and bathroom. We’re glad that trend has passed and that Maureen McCormick and Dan Vickery are going to help save that poor house from what must be the worst-smelling carpet ever.
