What to know about Indianapolis HGTV show and its hosts

Since “Good Bones,” premiered in 2016, it’s become one of HGTV‘s most popular shows, raking in nearly 22 million views in its fifth season in 2020. 

The show stars Hoosier mother-daughter duo Karen Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk as they focus on revitalizing classic Indianapolis neighborhoods by rehabilitating old houses. 

This approach, of renovating many houses on the same street or neighborhood, comes from the genuine investment Laine and Starsiak Hawk have in their home.

“We live in the neighborhoods, and we care about the neighborhoods,” Starsiak Hawk told IndyStar in 2019. 

In the years since “Good Bones” premiered, it’s led to six seasons (and counting), spinoffs and stardom for the mother and daughter behind it all.
