Daryl Hall, On TV, Rehabbing His House

A new show for you to DVR.

Fresh off his band’s induction (with YOUR help) into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, Daryl Hall will be coming to a television screen near you this spring.

This spring, Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates will bring his 18th-century Connecticut farmhouse back to glory on “Daryl’s Restoration Over-Hall.”

It’ll debut on the DIY network, which as the Times reports, is all about…rehabbing, remodeling, and refurbishing their houses. Like: Daryl Hall.

On a recent afternoon, Mr. Hall, 67, was sitting inside his latest little jewel, a 1787 farmhouse with a white picket fence on 40 acres in rural western Connecticut. Outside in the biting cold, workers were erecting a modest addition while a camera crew hovered. The day’s filming seemed to involve Mr. Hall, dressed in sunglasses and a big furry jacket, his blond lion’s mane perfectly coifed, stepping out every few hours to check the progress of reclaimed wood beams being stripped of old paint, and then ducking back inside again.

It’ll never be “Daryl’s House,” but then again, what is?
