An episode of “Military Makeover with Montel” featuring an Ashville man will air Friday, May 31, on the Lifetime network.

Cody Willett, a U.S. Air Force veteran, was selected earlier this year along with his family to be the recipient of a home makeover.

Volunteers began demolishing areas of the family’s home on April 29. Filming began shortly after with various Chautauqua County locations set to feature on the show.

A reveal was held on May 9 with host Montel Williams, a U.S. Marine and Navy veteran, appearing at the Ashville residence.

The entire experience will be released in five, 30-minute episodes, from May 31 through July 18.

Each episode that airs will have a rerun date shortly after.

Episode one will air May 31 and June 7; episode two will air June 14 and June 21; episode three will air June 28 and July 4; Episode four will air July 5 and July 11; and Episode five will air July 12 and July 18.
