Lifetime Network’s newest unscripted series Picker Sisters sees interior designer best friends Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen travel across America looking for treasures for their Los Angeles-based home d├ęcor pop-up shop.

Picker Sisters will premiere on August 2 at 10 p.m. EST and stars Hutson and McQueen, both of whom appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The series was formerly known as To Live and Buy.

The series promises to reaffirm the classic saying “one person’s trash is another’s treasure,” as episodes see the duo sourcing bargains for their new store. They will, for example, take tarnished fuel tanks sitting in a junk yard, negotiate the right price and bring it back to LA, to reconstruct the findings into beautiful furnishings.

Picker Sisters is produced by RelativityREAL for Lifetime Television. RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman and Josh Bingham serve as exec producers, while Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Sandy Varo Jarrell exec produce for Lifetime. RelativityREAL’s Brad Bishop is co-executive producer.
