"DOWN EAST DICKERING"

New HISTORY(R) Series Premieres Wednesday, April 2 at 10 p.m.

New York, NY - March 4, 2014 - In "down east" Maine, a group of colorful locals known as "dickerers" live on their own terms - no time clocks, no bosses, no rules. How? By scouring Uncle Henry's - a local magazine filled with classified ads - and wheeling and dealing their way through its pages of odd jobs, crazy barters, offbeat goods and other jaw-dropping ways to make a quick buck.

DOWN EAST DICKERING, a new 8-part series premiering Wednesday, April 2 at 10 p.m. (ET) on HISTORY(R), follows four groups of New Englanders for whom "dickering" is a way of life. Whether it's building a bridge, climbing a bell tower or officiating a wedding, they'll do whatever it takes to make a few bucks so they can enjoy life on their own terms.

For dickering pros Tony, Clint, Yummy and the rest of their gang, opportunity knocks every Thursday when their "bible" - the latest issue of Uncle Henry's - is published. 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. 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. Each has a different strategy, but all have the same goal: spend a little, make a lot, and do it before the next the guy.

DOWN EAST DICKERING is produced for HISTORY by Pilgrim Studios. Elaine Frontain Bryant and Susan Werbe are Executive Producers for HISTORY. Craig Piligian, Mike Nichols and Bryan Severance are Executive Producers for Pilgrim Studios.
