Last fall, SVA alumnus and faculty member Jimmy DiResta (BFA 1990 Graphic Design) joined forces with his brother, actor/comedian John DiResta, to create Trash to Cash, a program for TV’s FX network in which the duo rehabbed a room using items found in the trash. This season, the DiRestas are back on television with Hammered, a new show in which the siblings will spend each episode building something, exploring the materials and processes while also having some fun.
“I can make anything, and John can make anything funny,” is how DiResta describes the show’s formula, adding, “It is not a reality show with a deadline. It’s about building things and inspiring the viewer to make things.” Hammered will debut at 12 noon on Saturday, September 16, on the cable channel HGTV.
