The actor best known as Balki from the 1980s TV sitcom "Perfect Strangers" is coming back to TV with a show about restoring his historic Pennsylvania homes.

Bronson Pinchot (PIHN'-cho) lives in Harford, a town of about 1,300 people in Susquehanna County in northeastern Pennsylvania. His new show, "The Bronson Pinchot Project," premiered this month on the DIY Network.

Pinchot bought his 172-year-old Greek Revival home in Harford more than a decade ago. Since then, he's purchased five more old properties and is restoring them.

The show follows Pinchot and his crew of local carpenters and craftspeople as they renovate the properties using only salvaged materials.
