An Arkansas couple is set to appear in an HGTV series pilot airing next month, according to the network.

Almost Home, premiering at 10 p.m. Nov. 7, centers around Dave and Jenny Marrs and their work to restore homes in Bentonville. The pilot features a historic house built in 1893.

“It’s a huge undertaking, but Jenny and Dave are always up for a good challenge and will do whatever it takes to give the Newberry family their dream home,” a show teaser on HGTV’s website states.

On Instagram, Jenny Marrs wrote that she and her husband had kept the TV project a secret for about a year.

“Dave and I have always had a particular affinity for neglected old homes. We love resurrecting their former beauty and charm,” she wrote in a post to her blog.

An HGTV spokeswoman said Dave Marrs is a contractor and his wife works as a designer on the homes they renovate.

The couple has four children, including an adopted daughter from the Democratic Republic of Congo they brought home in July 2014, the blog states.
