Plot Synopsis

HOLMES FAMILY EFFECT is a one-hour reality series that follows professional contractor Mike Holmes, his daughter, Sherry, and son, Michael, as they tackle their most important projects to date. Inspired by people who are making a difference in their communities, each episode follows the Holmes family as they surprise these deserving people by transforming their spaces. From a neglected school building to a rundown youth center, the Holmes family help these heroes in their quest to make a difference.

HOLMES FAMILY EFFECT made its U.S. debut on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 from 8-10pm ET/PT on FOX, as the network premiered back-to-back episodes:

"A Trade of a Lifetime" (8pm): Mike, Sherry and Michael Holmes take on a project that is close to their hearts when 18-year-old Riley asks for their help to save her school's skilled trades program. As the Holmes family transforms three run-down classrooms, they also wear their teachers' hats to give the kids a chance to learn from the pros. The trio and Riley also give back to her extraordinary teacher, Mr. Meleca, as a special thank you for helping to change the students' lives. With a class full of future trades professionals, it's a special project for the Holmes family. This episode features a celebrity guest appearance from school alumnus comedian Russell Peters.

"Think Big. Dream Bigger" (9pm): University student Vanessa calls on the Holmes family to transform Solid State, an entrepreneurial co-op center for minority youth. With the center's headquarters cramped, tired and uninspiring, the Holmes family, along with Vanessa, Solid State co-founder Matt and their cohorts get their hands dirty turning the center into a place where young dreamers can collaborate and flourish. Additionally, the Holmes family faces a major dilemma when they're forced to shut down the work site due to the global pandemic.
