EXCLUSIVE: A new unscripted show about a woman named Kate and her family is coming to TLC. The network of Jon and Kate Plus 8 has picked up What the Sell?!, a reality series about a large antique store just outside Chicago, Illinois run by a three-generation appraising team: Kate, the daughter, Judy, her mother, and Gloria, her grandmother. TLC has picked up 14 episodes of the show, which will premiere on March 29. “Viewers will get an inside look at dealing in antiques through the unique perspective of this multi-generational family,” TLC’s SVP production and development Howard Lee said.
What the Sell?! started off as a pilot, which TLC aired in November to solid ratings – it drew 1.9 million viewers. The series is executive produced by Brent Montgomery and Colby Gaines, with Courtney Montgomery co-executive producing. Antique appraisal has been an evergreen unscripted genre with staple Antiques Roadshow.
