He’s back! Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) announced today that Eyes for the Job, starring Chris Judge, returns Tuesday, February 9, at 8 p.m. Eastern on AMI-tv.
In Season four of Eyes for the Job, viewers follow handyman Chris Judge, who is blind, along with co-host Erwan Fresq, as they take on do-it-yourself projects in their community with help from their travelling workshop in a converted camper van. From renovating kitchens and home offices to backyards and basements, Chris and Erwan tackle DIY with a smile.
In the premiere episode on Tuesday, February 9, at 8 p.m. Eastern on AMI-tv, Chris and Erwan revitalize a deck and yard space, and help homeowner Darren overcome his fear of home maintenance.
