Beloved 80s icon, Mr. T will soon host a show on the DIY Network. The show, called “I Pity the Tool,” will focus on remodeling homes, destroying outdated spaces and giving families beautifully remodeled rooms. Each episode will feature Mr T and HGTV Design Star winner Tiffany Brooks ripping up old carpet and tearing down walls to give a family the ultimate home makeover.
I Pity the Tool — which takes its name from Mr. T’s famed “I pity the fool” expression — joins a roster of celebrity-focused renovation series on DIY including The Vanilla Ice Project, Daryl’s Restoration Over-Hall (Daryl Hall), The Shatner Project (William Shatner) and Rev Run’s Renovation (Run DMC’s Rev Run).
For Mr. T, the DIY series marks his latest nonscripted foray following TV Land’s uplifting advice entry I Pity the Fool.
The show will premiere later this year on the DIY Network.
