Tim Allen Reveals Biggest Hesitation Over New Show With Home Improvement’s Richard Karn

  • by

ALLEN: There was a hesitation on my part, when I developed this a long time ago, an idea with the other executive [being] Kate Fox. We put this thing together a long time ago, and pitched it, and never would I consider Richard would be interested for some reason. I just, I don’t know, I see Richard, you know, socially, and I never even thought about it. And then one of my management team [members] says, ‘Why don’t you ask Richard to host with you?’ The only hesitation was I didn’t want to embarrass myself by going, ‘Would you mind doing it? It’s kind of a look at fix-it [shows].’ And he jumped at the chance. Then, all of a sudden, it became the two of us, kind of a live version of ‘Tool Time,’ if you will. We’re very similar to the characters we’ve played that show.

KARN: Yeah, we don’t like to ask questions we don’t know the answers to. [Laughs.]
