Extreme member Ed takes East Texas behind the scenes

By Layron Livingston - bio | email

MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - Hundreds will see it go up in person. Thousands more will watch online. But there's plenty of stuff going on with the Extreme Makeover build that you don't see.

For example, inside the production trailer, where they monitor more than 100 hours of footage for each episode. Extreme Makeover cast member Ed Sanders took us behind the scenes for an exclusive look in art world. That's where the on-air designers team up with local volunteers to create those very special rooms and unique furniture pieces for the deserving family. "If you could cut our show, it would bleed blue blood. From any one time, we've got anywhere from at least ten, to thirty, to forty men and women doing exactly what you see right here," said Sanders.

"It's kind of hectic, but they really have it together. So much more goes into it than you can possibly get from a camera," said Josh Poston, a volunteer. The crew tells us, on any given build, there are anywhere from twenty to thirty custom projects for the house.
