Just Renting Joins Heartland Programming Lineup

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

The Heartland Network, in cooperation with Just Renting Productions, LLC, has announced the addition of the brand new series Just Renting to the network’s lineup. The 30-minute series will premiere on Heartland Aug. 25, airing on Sundays and Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. Just Renting will also be offered on Heartland’s free Roku live streaming channel.

This new series follows a team of investors travelling to Flint, Mi. where they team up with Gebrael Management, LLC, to buy and renovate local single-family homes on a budget, transforming them into rentals.  Just Renting documents Flint's bizarre rental property market with its own brand of derailed comedy that could spiral out of control any moment, said officials. 

Of the addition to Heartland, Just Renting co-creator and executive producer Jack Galvin said, “The city of Flint has been so supportive of this series since the idea was first brought to life.  With Heartland, we have the opportunity to show Flint’s heart and soul through our own brand of satire, documentary, and reality on a national platform.”

Series executive producer and Gebrael Management owner Nadeem Gebrael added, “Growing up in the Flint area, I have seen it go through its fair share of ups and downs. With both myself and my business embedded in this community, I have loved watching it flourish over the past few years. The partnership with Heartland and this amazing TV show gives us the opportunity to shine a new light on the transformation of our wonderful community.”  

And the team at Heartland certainly agrees.  “We’ve all watched Flint’s struggles the past few years. Our network is thrilled to shine a positive light on this community as they continue to recover. Just Renting is not only an entertaining program, but coupled with the fact that Flint, a unique part of this country's Heartland, has been through so much makes Just Renting a compelling, must-see show,” said Joel Wertman, president of The Heartland Network.
