PHOENIX -- A Gilbert couple stars in a new reality show about flipping houses.

The name of teh show has not been revealed, but it's slated to air this summer on HGTV.

3TV's Tess Rafols took us behind the scenes of the show, which focuses on people who got in over their heads while trying to flip a home.

"What we're doing in the show is rescuing these folks, getting them out of the red and back into the black," Jason LaFlesch explained. "It's super, super exciting."

LaFlesch and his wife, Jennifer, are experienced when it comes to rehabbing and flipping houses. They've done hundreds, if not thousands, of homes.

This project, however, is a little different. They started on Monday and have to have the house finished and ready to show by Saturday.

"It's been crazy," Jennifer said. "We've been working 14-hour days. The construction crews have been working longer -- overnight. It's been ridiculous. I've never been a part of something like this."

Executive producer Nate Harrington met the couple through a mutual friend.

"They're a master in their trade," he said.

The HGTV open house -- which is the reveal of the project -- is Saturday, 2 p.m.-5 p.m., at 5504 E. Calle Del Santo (near Camelback Road and 40th Street) in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix.
