HGTV's Scoring The Deal' Promises Professional Athletes And Beautiful Homes (VIDEO)

If you love the thrill of searching for the perfect home, or you're just a big fan of shows like "House Hunters," you'll definitely want to check out HGTV's new show, "Scoring The Deal," which premieres tonight at 11 p.m. EST.

Similarly to the channel's other real estate shows, "Scoring The Deal" follows potential homeowners and their real estate agents as they scope out living spaces in big cities across the country. But The Abrams Team's clients are willing to pay much more for the perfect home. Jason Abrams works with all professional athletes, who sometimes only have days before they need to move whenever they sign new contracts. And their budgets? Normally within $5-$15 million.

Abrams notes another difference between his show and other similar ones. "Our show is really happening, in real time, with real people who have real needs," he says. Abrams is proud of the show's authenticity, which gives viewers a realistic view of what his job is really like. "I have a really defined start and finish in my day," he says. "I start the day not knowing where they're going to live, and I end the day knowing," Abrams adds. And this is what makes his work so fulfilling.

The series premiere includes two episodes, Abrams tell us, both with equally as impressive homes. The first features NFL running back Clinton Portis as he looks for a home in Miami. Abrams says you can expect to see some pretty amazing places, including a gorgeous penthouse with a swimming pool that overlooks the ocean. The second episode follows NBA player Jordan Farmar's very pressing search for a new home -- it all takes place overnight -- as he needs to move in the next day.

Tune into HGTV tonight at 11 p.m. EST for the premiere, and watch the video above for a sneak peak at a future episode.
