Craft enthusiasts, prepare for battle. Tori Spelling will host and executive produce "Craft Wars," a new competition series on TLC.
"As a lifelong crafter, I love how crafting gives you the opportunity to really express yourself and show your creativity. It's an amazing outlet and nothing shows love more than something homemade," Spelling said in a statement. "I can't wait to share my passion and be inspired by all the amazing contestants."
Each episode of "Craft Wars" will pit three everyday crafters against each other in two rounds of challenges. Each round encompasses different genres of crafting. The 10-episode series started production in Los Angeles and is set for a June 26 premiere.
As part of her hosting duties, Spelling will act as a guide for the audience and a mentor to the contestants. The reality star has her own line of craft products, "The Tori Spelling Collection," and incorporated her skills in a new party planning book, "CelebraTORI." The contestants will be judged by author and Glitterville Studios founder Stephen Brown, DIY lifestyle expert Erica Domesek and Michaels creative expert Jo Pearson.
"'Craft Wars' continues to re-define crafting as something extremely modern -- this is not your grandmother's crocheting," Amy Winter, GM of TLC, said in a statement. "At its core, the series celebrates the creative sprit, which will resonate with TLC's audience."
