Sneak Peek Behind The Scenes Of NBC Interior Design Show "George To The Rescue"

In April, Philadelphia interior designer Susan Hopkins received a surprising call from someone who saw her website. That one phone call turned into a life-changing opportunity for her.

Gail Doby: How were you contacted to become a part of the George to the Rescue project?

Susan Hopkins: The producer called and left a voice mail for me while I was in a client meeting late one evening. The voice mail said, “Hi, Susan. This is Andy S. at 30 Rock …” I couldn't believe it was real. I believe that they found me just from searching through Google. 

Gail: They just called you out-of-the-blue? 

Susan: Right, they did! I have a photo on my website. The producer told me that he felt that I had the right look for the show. 

Gail: Tell us about George to the Rescue.

Susan: It is a mini-version of Extreme Home Makeover Home Edition. George Oliphant typically helps single families, and he helps people who are helping others as well.
