Just when you think they’ve come up with every reality show possible, along comes “Family Trade,” a new show premiering on GSN that brings new life to old-fashioned bartering. The show debuts Tuesday, March 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and it looks really fun.
The show follows the crew at G-Stone Motors, a state-of-the-art GMC and Ford dealership in Middlebury, Vermont where the saying is, “We’ll take anything in trade.” And they mean it.
Founder Gardner Stone will trade you a beautiful new car or truck for anything you’ve got that he thinks he can sell — pigs, a hot air balloon, coffins, maple syrup, dolls, a shoe collection. But Stone’s son Todd and daughter Darcy, who work with him in the business, usually have very different ideas about what makes a good trade, and they have the unenviable task of re-selling whatever their father has bought.
Each 30-minute episode will feature the outrageous, hilarious, hotly contested barter stories at G-Stone Motors—with a simmering stew of family drama cooking alongside. FAMILY TRADE is produced by Eli Frankel’s Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate, with Frankel as Executive Producer.
