Billy Buys Brooklyn (pictured; working title) follows the eccentric businessman and appraiser as he opens Billy’s Antiques & Props, a vintage, antiques and collectables store in Brooklyn.
The 20 x 30-minute series will follow Leroy and his team as they utilize their network of antiques experts to seek out unique items – from a rare ’80s Haro BMX Bike, to a Victorian walking cane hiding a gun – to ensure his latest venture is successful.
Discovery’s Jon Stephens serves as executive producer alongside MY Entertainment’s Michael Yudin, Joe Townley and John Yakovou.
Billy Buys Brooklyn is to broadcast globally on dplay and linear channels including DMAX in the UK, Italy, Spain and Germany, as well as via Discovery Channel in the U.S. and throughout Europe.
A premiere date has yet to be announced.
