truTV Takes Viewers into the High Stakes World of Estate Sales With All-New Series BIG BRIAN: THE FORTUNE SELLER, Premiering March 22

Estate sales can be great places to go for bargains on everything from collectible knick-knacks to used furniture. But they can also turn up a hidden cache of items that can sell for thousands of dollars. truTV heads into this high-stakes world with one of the best in the business in the all-new series BIG BRIAN: THE FORTUNE SELLER. Each week, this fascinating and exciting one-hour show will follow estate sale supervisor Brian Elenson and his hard-working crew as they try to turn a house full of junk into a goldmine. The series is set to premiere Tuesday, March 22, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), following two all new episodes of the hit truTV series HARDCORE PAWN.

The average home has thousands of personal effects, from earrings to grand pianos, antique tin toys to priceless baseball cards. When a homeowner needs to liquidate in a hurry, "Big Brian" is the man to call. His company, 2 Much Stuff 4 Me, handles estate sales like no other. When Brian comes into a person's home, he follows a careful three-step process: 1) Find anything of value; 2) Sell it to the highest bidder; 3) Donate or destroy anything that's left over. Brian's work isn't done until the entire house is broom-clean from basement to attic.

Brian has a big, bold personality that's as loud as his voice, but he also has the extensive knowledge of antiques and collectibles that make him a top estate salesman. Assisting him in his estate sale endeavors are Brian's three trusted crew members: Assisting him in his estate sale endeavors are Brian's three trusted crew members: Vinny, the picker, who will crawl into any space to find a treasure; Anna, Vinny's girlfriend and the team's jewelry expert who is sensitive to spiritual presences; and Joe, the tough guy and security enforcer.

Room after room, negotiation after negotiation, Brian and his crew work hard and fast to get the most money they can for the clients. Together, they conduct more than 200 estate sales a year featuring thousands of unusual items and hidden treasures, each with a story to tell. From a trio of stuffed Bengali tigers to a sketch that may have been penned by Picasso, Brian has seen - and sold - it all.
