WGN America will Air a Home Restoration Show like no other; starting Sunday, November 19, 2017 audiences will welcome into their Homes “Flip This Hood”; a show directed by Arthur Muhammad, an award-winning screenwriter, filmmaker, and producer of the 2015 release, “Carter High” (which stars Charles Dutton, Vivica Fox, Pooch Hall, David Banner), has a keen eye, cinematic hands, and a patent gift for storytelling. Muhammad has taken footage he’s gathered from following Real Estate Businessman Michael Phillips and his team in order to give audiences a true journey of will and determination.
“Flip This Hood” will introduce main characters Michael Phillips, true story of coming from nothing… As the oldest of 4 kids raised by a single mother in a tough Fort Worth, Texas neighborhood, Michael bought his first house at the age of 19 for $7k (money he had saved from hustling in the streets). It would be several years later, married with a child on the way before Michael would pursue real estate again. Michael knew at that point “Failure Was Not An Option”, so he disassociated himself from the street life, and began his dream of Real Estate investing full time. Michael went on to sell over 800 houses in 17 years. Tragedy hit the Phillips’ household and Michael lost his wife to heart failure in 2015. Michael now takes on the task of being a single father and continuing to flip houses and building his family’s real estate empire!
No Man is an island and you will also meet Carl Sullivan, Project Manager who oversees the remodeling and or construction projects that Michael buys. Carl is also a real estate investor, who flips his own properties from time to time. They round out this cast with their trusted Assistant Alejandra Ortega-Ramos who has worked for Michael almost 3 years, remodeling his houses with her father Carlos Ortega who has worked on and off 17 years with Michael. Alejandra will often be on the construction site helping her father and serving as a translator. All while maintaining her marriage to her college sweetheart.
