  • Fixer Upper's Joanna Gaines shared a behind-the-scenes video in a blog post.
  • The short clip shows Jo and husband, Chip Gaines, starting production for their new Discovery television network.
  • In fall 2018, Chip announced the exciting news on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

    Amidst baby Crew Gaines breaking the Internet with his first birthday party photos, his proud mama and Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines took the opportunity to give a sneak peak of the Gaines’ upcoming Discovery TV network—set to premiere in summer 2020.

    In a short video, Jo and husband Chip Gaines sit on a set preparing to start production on their new network. In their usual manner, both joke around with each other and the camera crew, prompting multiple takes.

    "There’s so many stories just waiting to be told," Chip starts saying.

    "Stories that bring us together, that encourage us to listen closer, and let us see one another in a whole new light," they say. "Stories that help us lean in and stand out, that connect us to our roots and to one another. Stories that make us wonder and think in way we never have before."

    In her “Summer Update” blog post on the Magnolia website, Jo is honest about being nervous about the unknowns ahead and having to learn as she goes. But, she says, ultimately the stories told make that journey completely worth it.

    “When I think back to what Chip and I have done together over the past 16 years, it all felt insurmountable at the time,” she wrote in her blog post. “Whether it was flipping our first house together, opening our own business or having kids, there were just so many unknowns.”

    She continued: “When I get nervous or afraid, the part that gets me up every day is that fact that we get to climb these steep mountains together. We have grown to love the unknown and the risks and challenges that come with it. That’s what makes us feel alive and young. We have started the process of exploring ideas for shows and the ways in which we’ll curate and produce them. Since we started this journey we’ve known one thing for certain: we believe there are good stories waiting to be told and we can’t wait to tell them.”

    With less than a year until launch, Chip and Jo are definitely busy bringing their new network to life, not to mention, parenting five children and continuing to oversee their Magnolia empire—the true definition of a power couple.

    We can't wait to hear the stories the two will telling in the near future!
