NBC's new reality show American Dream Builders puts a spin on the home makeover TV genre.

While the series has all the feel-good inspiration we've come to expect of the genre, American Dream Builders ups the drama by pitting dueling teams of designers against each other in a competition to give two families their dream homes. As people are eliminated each week, the teams grow smaller, forcing the remaining players to take on even more responsibility.

"We are changing the lives of these families. We are changing the way they think about themselves by waking up in a beautiful home that's been designed exactly how they want to live," host Nate Berkus says in this exclusive first look.

American Dream Builders premieres Sunday, March 23 at 8/7c on NBC.
