More About the Program
Host Matt Paxton, a nine-season veteran of A&E’s Hoarders, is joined by a small team to help families find the key valuables on the families’ legacy lists. The specialists include Mike Kelleher, a walking encyclopedia of pop culture collectibles and antiques; Avi Hopkins, a military and religious memorabilia expert; and Jaime Ebanks, an expert in fashion, textiles, and travel collectibles.
This season, Matt and the team visit with and help families in Richmond and Mechanicsville, Va.; Llewellyn Park and Aberdeen, N.J.; Norristown, Pa.; and Newark, Del.
While Matt and the team hunt through the house under deadline pressure to find the items on the legacy list, the program periodically cuts away and explores the fascinating history behind the objects the team is searching for. These segments will also delve into the history of the house, family, and the surrounding region to create a completely immersive viewer experience into one family’s big, surprising, and often bittersweet life transition.
