The company claims it intends to return it to its "1970s glory."Lance Bass has someone who is squarely siding with him in the mess over the sale of the "Brady Bunch" house. that someone is his real estate broker, who says his client was shamelessly defrauded". After all, it served as the exterior image of the ultimate TV family home for the entirety of "The Brady Bunch" run, from 1969 to 1974 - and again in a few specials, one spinoff and endless reruns.

Discovery Inc. Chief Executive David Zaslav announced the news Tuesday morning on an earnings call with Wall Street analysts.

"You may have heard that the house from the iconic series was recently on the market in California", Zaslav said.

N*SYNC singer Lance Bass was also trying to snag the property, but as he told his fans, his attempt to score the TV home was thwarted by a "Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost".

The Brady Bunch was about a clean-cut family formed by the marriage of a widow with three children and a widower with three children.

This year's headliners were Judas Priest, Danzig , Sepultura , Hatebreed , and In Flames . "How cool is that, please?" Wacken is one of the world's largest heavy metal music Festivals and has an attendance of about 75,000.

Sadly, it wasn't mean to be for Bass -two days later, he was back on social media expressing his heartbreak over losing out as his bid was passed over due to "unforeseen circumstances", and that a Hollywood studio with "unlimited resources" would be purchasing the home instead. The final sale price has not been announced. "I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it's not a good feeling", Bass said.

"How is this fair and legal?" McCormick tweeted at Bass.

"How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity?" he wrote. "I feel used but most importantly I'm hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome".

The two-bedroom, three-bathroom split-level home was put up for sale after the children of the original homeowners, George and Violet McCallister, chose to sell the property when their parents died. That included the shows opening and closing scenes as well as numerous interludes to denote the time of day.

"This iconic residence is reportedly the second most photographed home in the United States after the White House", the description read on selling agent Ernie Carswell's website.
