DALLAS – A television series sponsored by Acme Brick Company since its launch airs its record-breaking 1,000th episode in the Dallas-Fort Worth market on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 11 a.m. on WFAA-TV (channel 8, ABC).

Hot On! Homes, produced by Crozier and Henderson Productions, Inc., showcases new home communities and home builders.

"We are extremely humbled to reach the 1,000th episode milestone,” said Leslie Crozier, co-founder of Crozier and Henderson Productions. "We are proud to have produced the longest running TV series in Dallas-Fort Worth.

"To put this accomplishment of creating 1,000 new episodes in perspective, The Simpsons has aired only 619 episodes, The Big Bang Theory only 240 episodes, and Law and Order only 466 episodes."

Acme Brick has been a co-sponsor of all 1,000 episodes of Hot On! Homes in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Since 1999, Hot On! Homes has been bringing local shoppers, builders and developers together in entertaining, innovative and effective ways. Since that first episode 18 years ago, local home shoppers have watched Hot On! Homes tens of millions of times. Thanks to the many partnerships with home builders and community developers  - and Acme Brick - over the years, Hot On! Homes is able to reach this epic 1,000th episode milestone.

"Hot On! is much more than a popular TV show," said Clint Henderson, co-founder of Crozier and Henderson. "Hot On! is a leader in home builder digital advertising, and we recently introduced a new geo-fencing proximity marketing program, HomeBuilder Proximity, in which a builder can target and advertise to a Hot On! local home shopper ready to buy a new home."

The milestone episode will showcase a new Hot On! logo, new graphics, fresh colors, upbeat music, and current styles on a brand-new set. With all of the changes happening to the show, tens of thousands of local home shoppers will continue to visit the new Hot On! Homes TV show website (www.hotonhomes.com), where they can watch entire shows, share tips, or search for communities and home builder incentives featured on the show.
