Unscripted's Life on the Set - Action! 

When Unscripted was asked to join the Rock The Block crew, we knew it would be hard work, but we're always up for a challenge! Senior designers Risa Burke, Michelle Buster, Lisa Butler, and Stevie Dillman were each assigned to a home, where they teamed up with the star-studded cast to transform their spaces, in hopes of being named the winners! We were thrilled to partner with HGTV and the talented people who came together to make every episode happen. We learned it truly takes a village to create the magic you see on TV!
