norm-abram-new-yankeeAfter twenty-one successful seasons on PBS, the producers of THE NEW YANKEE WORKSHOP will no longer be making new episodes. But the popular how-to series will not leave the OETA schedule immediately. The producers will supply PBS stations with enough encore episodes to last until the end of the year.

The NEW YANKEE WORKSHOP's companion Web site,, will continue to provide viewers the opportunity to get into the shop with project plans, DVDs, a Q&A section, and more.

Host Norm Abram isn't hanging up his toolbelt anytime soon. He will continue his work on the weekly series THIS OLD HOUSE.

Replacing NEW YANKEE WORKSHOP in the OETA schedule will be ASK THIS OLD HOUSE, a question and answer series that takes the THIS OLD HOUSE team to viewer's doorsteps to help solve their home repair problems. ASK THIS OLD HOUSE will air Saturdays at 1pm starting January 2, 2010.
