Official synopsis reads: Builder Brothers Dream Factory is inspired by the real-life Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott. The twin brothers are a pair of regular kids who use their extraordinary imagination, creativity, grit and heart – coupled with a big dose of TWINSPIRATION to help friends and solve problems in the neighbourhood by dreaming big – really big – sometimes too big!
Along with best friends Mel and Ayana, the Builder Brothers navigate the highs and lows of trying to make their world a better place – one big dream at a time. Life for the brothers and the Dream Factory Crew in the harbour town of Steamport centres on friends, family, school and community as they use their combined individual skills and interests to GEAR UP and GET IT DONE!
In addition to the recent ITV sale of Builder Brothers Dream Factory, the series has made additional deals with Warner Brothers Discovery for Southeast Asia, Genial Media for Spain, and NRK for Norway. Currently the series airs on Discovery Kids in Latin America, and on Corus Entertainment’s STACKTV and Treehouse in Canada.
