A&E Networks’ FYI on Monday announced its 2017 programming slate, including such series as Tiny House Hunting and Food Porn.

The network is offering nine new series this year, and returning five veterans, with a mix of unscripted home, relationship, cooking and competition programs.

Returning series, besides Tiny House Hunting and Food Porn, are Tiny House Nation, Zombie House Flipping and My Floating Home.

You Can’t Turn That Into a House, produced by Red Arrow Industries, follows brothers Taimoor and Rehan Nana, along with architect Kyle Davis, as they build homes out of what seem like impossible spaces, such as converting a rusted-out silo into a high-rise one-bedroom apartment or turning an airplane into a home with wings.

A Question of Love, produced by Noble Savages, follows three couples as they move in together.

Kinetic Content’s Man vs. Master watches chefs as they compete for the opportunity to win a coveted apprenticeship with a world-renowned chef. But first, they must beat their would-be master in a head-to-head cooking challenge. Top Chef’s Richard Blais will host.

Vox Entertainment’s Prefabulous explores the pre-fabricated real estate industry, in which consumers are buying custom homes for reasonable prices on short timelines.

Sheffield Real Estate, produced by Pink Sneakers Productions, trails realtor DeLeon Sheffield as she grows her business while raising three sons with her husband, baseball legend Gary Sheffield. DeLeon’s mother, Debbie, lives with the family and helps both with raising the boys and building the business.

In Virtually Renovated, produced by INvelop Entertainment, homeowners collaborate with high-end designers to renovate their homes, with all the designs presented to the homeowners in virtual reality using the latest in Samsung VR technology.
