A new series on HGTV called "Renovate to Rent" that will premier tonight (Tuesday, June 11) was filmed entirely in Minnesota and will follows the house-hunting - and renovation - antics of Twin Cities-based real estate investors, Drew Levin and Danny Perkins.

Each of the eight episodes will feature Levin and Perkins as they hunt for the right investment property, renovate it & try to rent it out for top dollar. Perkins and Levin, longtime business partners, said that a Minnesota connection helped them land the program, which ends with a financial break-down of the property featured on that episode.

Levin, a real estate agent, and Perkins, a general contractor, aren't new to the business world. They were Minnesota’s 2013 Young Entrepreneurs of the Year for their efforts launching the first bricks-and-mortar venue for the Turkey-to-Go concept first launched at the Minnesota State Fair in 1959.
