Neon Giveth and Neon Taketh Away

Neon is adding The History of Home Narrated by Nick Offerman to its platform next month.

The three-part series bearing the Parks and Recreation star’s name interviews architects, designers, craftspeople and historians to explain the “story” of various rooms in a house, including hallways, kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms.

The CuriosityStream show features the likes of Highclere Castle — home of Downton Abbey — and Kirkjubøargarður, also known as King’s Farm, which is one of the oldest inhabited wooden houses in the world.

“I love our human capacity for building clever spots in which to cook our meat and make sweet love to our spouses,” Offerman, a master woodworker, says.

“This series is such a beautifully embroidered paean to the varied results of that particular talent, so I was over the moon when they asked me to collaborate with their gorgeous work.”

It was shot in 4K but here, because of Neon’s infrastructural limitations, HD will be its highest streaming resolution.

The late-minute addition coincides with Sky’s streaming service removing a raft of children’s series from its October schedule:

  • Pocoyo: Crazy Inventions (was October 16)
  • Elmo: The Musical (was October 16 )
  • The Wiggles: Ready, Steady, Wiggle! S2 (was October 16 )
  • Through the Woods S1  (wasOctober 22 )
  • The Day Henry Met … S1  (was October 28 ).
