Love Shack is a six episode, half hour TV series following the journey of one of the favourite couples from the popular TV show, The Block, Dea and Darren Jolly, as they create their dream of a family farm on
the Mornington Peninsula.

Darren is a country boy, a professional home builder and ex AFL star. Dea is a city girl and a well-respected and influential interior designer. Together they are the perfect combination to take on the challenge of transforming this tiny rundown farm into a stunning family rural retreat – with all the challenges of a sensitive environment and harsh coastal weather conditions. A bit like River Cottage but based on home renovating.
