  • HGTV Announced as Winning Bidder for 'Brady Bunch' House

Discovery, which owns cable network HGTV, was the victor in a bidding war to buy the iconic "Brady Bunch" home in Studio City.

The mystery of which Hollywood entity bought the iconic house used for exterior shots in The Brady Bunch has been solved: Cable network HGTV is the buyer.

"One of our projects for HGTV will speak to those Brady Bunch fans on the call", he said, per Deadline.

According to Yahoo, the home improvement simulator that airs non-stop in your parent's living room is buying the home and plans to restore it to "it's 1970s glory" according to David Zaslay, the CEO of Discovery.

Zaslav added that more details would be released over the coming months, "but we'll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories with this beloved piece of American TV history".

The two-story house was used for outdoor representations of the beloved television familys abode.

"The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed-even writing up the "winning bid" for my team after informing me of the good news", Bass wrote.

Johnny Depp's Notorious B.I.G. Movie Pulled A Month Before Release
It was directed by Brad Furman ( The Infiltrator ) from a script by Christian Contreras , based on the book by Randall Sullivan. Last month, location manager Greg "Rocky" Brooks filed suit against Depp for allegedly hurling obscenities at and punching him.

The second most photographed house in the U.S. is this one - the Los Angeles house where The Brady Bunch TV show was filmed in the early '70s.

Among those in the running was Bass, who publicly announced on social media that his offer for the Studio City house had been accepted. Bass said a corporate buyer was interested in the property and prepared to outbid any other party. "I just hope it is not demolished".

The network teased the announcement in a tweet early Tuesday morning.

According to Lance's real estate broker, who spoke to TMZ, the former *NSYNC singer was shamelessly defrauded after being assured by the seller's agent that the house was his.

After the buyer was revealed he changed his tune, saying he knew HGTV would do "the right thing".

Considering the popularity of the show, it's probably no surprise to hear it is reported to be the second most photographed house in the United States (after the White House, but before the Elvis mansion), with more than 30 people taking a drive past every day.
