U.S. cable network History is to begin airing the eight-part series Down East Dickering (pictured) on April 2.

Produced by Pilgrim Studios, the show is about a group of Maine residents who rely on “dickering” – or combing classified ads in local magazine Uncle Henry‘s to find odd jobs, barters and goods to make fast cash – to earn a living.

“A dickerer’s currency can be made up of anything from a bucket of hubcaps to a bushel of pears, and every dickerer worth his salt is an expert haggler who knows how to spot a deal,” the network said in a statement. “As long as they can get their hands on something that needs fixing, swapping, or selling, the dickerers can use their skills and a hard day’s work to fuel their freewheeling lifestyle.”

Elaine Frontain Bryant and Susan Werbe serve as executive producers for History, while Craig Piligian, Mike Nichols and Bryan Severance serve as exec producers for Pilgrim Studios.

Down East Dickering premieres on April 2 at 10 p.m. EST.
