Associate Producer, Ask This Old House
As Associate Producer of Ask This Old House, Sarah Chasse is responsible for finding unique houses, compelling homeowners, and relatable projects to fill twenty-six episodes of television per season. With more than 2,000 emails coming in from homeowners around the country each month, it’s her job to identify the most viable projects and then see those projects through to completed TV segments.
Sarah joined the TOH crew in 2014, shortly after graduating summa cum laude from Quinnipiac University with a degree in Film, Video and Interactive Media. Her first several months on the job were spent in the office, answering phone calls and viewer emails. It was clear that her talents were more valuable in the field, so she was soon named Production Coordinator for both This Old House and Ask This Old House. In 2017, she was promoted to Associate Producer and turned her attention full time to Ask This Old House, earning an Emmy nomination in her first year producing.
Sarah learned the TV craft at Quinnipiac, where she produced several student productions and also held three internships at The Dr. Oz Show; GEM, a local production company in Connecticut; and Chronicle, a local news magazine on WCVB-TV. She also produced 26.2: Miles Closer to Living, a documentary about Boston Marathon bombing survivors who decided to run the race again the following year. Her film was selected to screen at multiple film festivals including the Boston Film Festival.
While Sarah brings strength to the production side, she’s no stranger to the construction aspects of the job either. Her father and brother are both land surveyors, and she developed an interest in CAD software her father used at an early age. She wanted to be an architect until she took a media class in high school and saw the value of visual storytelling, so she decided to enter the production industry instead. Thanks to her time on Ask This Old House, she is able to combine the two passions.
Sarah recently got married and is currently living in an apartment in the Boston area with her new husband. While they save up for their first home together, Sarah’s already creating a mental list of all the projects she’s looking forward to doing. “I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and apply all that I’ve learned from our talented cast over the years.”
