A Detroit public high school will receive needed repairs while being featured on a network makeover reality show expected to air this fall.
Executive Producer Denise Cramsey said Thursday that work on the exterior of the 481-student Communication & Media Arts building will run Aug. 1-7 as part of NBC's "School Pride."
The district says Communication & Media Arts was removed from a list of schools to be closed partly because of the renovations coming for the show.
Crews in Detroit on Thursday doing advance filming for the show captured student excitement after they were told about "School Pride."
Cramsey says the school was selected because its poor physical condition and passionate students and parents fit the show's profile.
