LIFETIME TO PREMIERE UNSCRIPTED SERIES "PICKER SISTERS" ON AUGUST 2

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's TRACY HUTSON and TANYA MCQUEEN Beg, Borrow and Buy Their Way across the U.S. in Search of Rare Materials To Create Eclectic Furnishings for their Los Angeles Store

LOS ANGELES (July 27, 2011) - Lifetime Television has set Tuesday, August 2, at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) as the premiere date for its all-new unscripted series Picker Sisters. A second original episode will follow at 10:30pm only on this premiere date. Starring best friends and renowned interior designers Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), the program reaffirms the classic saying "one person's trash is another's treasure" by following the design duo as they crisscross America in search of rare relics and materials to create stunning pieces for their Los Angeles home décor pop-up shop.

Throughout the episodes, Hutson and McQueen together embark on the biggest and craziest business adventure of their lives - starting their own store. With keen eyes for style and intuitive design instincts, they travel far and wide to find jaw-dropping bargains on any interesting materials they discover before driving back to California and transforming them into pieces that will fetch top dollar. Whether it's a tarnished fuel tank sitting in a junk yard, mangled barbed wire, rusty tire wheels or the weathered wood from an entire barn, Hutson and McQueen meet and negotiate with some of the country's most interesting people willing to part with their belongings... for the right price. Once back in Los Angeles, Hutson and McQueen work with their contractor, Alan Luxmore, on realizing their design vision and create beautiful furnishings shrewd Los Angeles buyers looking to decorate their homes or offices will die for.

Picker Sisters is produced by RelativityREAL for Lifetime Television. RelativityREAL's Tom Forman (Lifetime's Coming Home, creator of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) and Josh Bingham (Obsessed, The Two Coreys) serve as executive producers.

Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Sandy Varo Jarrell of Lifetime Television also executive produce. RelativityREAL's Brad Bishop (Find My Family) is co-executive producer.
