TLC UNCOVERS UNIQUE ANTIQUES IN NEW SERIES "WHAT THE SELL?!" SET TO PREMIERE ON MARCH 29TH
Los Angeles, CA - TLC announces it will premiere new series WHAT THE SELL?! on Tuesday March 29th airing at 10PM (ET/PT).

Fourteen 30-minute episodes have been ordered and will air back to back with the finale airing May 23rd.
The shop is run by a three-generation appraising team of: Kate, the daughter, Judy, her mother, and Gloria, her grandmother. Viewers will be taken into their hectic days managing their extremely large antique store just outside of Chicago, Illinois.

With quick wits and savvy business sense, these ladies barter, buy and sell these timeless treasures like it's just another day in the office.
