Pilot Episode Filming

Chris Fernandez of 1980 Something Co took to his IG account with an audience seeking call out for the filming of a pilot episode to an unnamed show. Could this be the MTV show? Cottonuity thinks so.

“Seeking an audience for a very special Virtual Flea (for a major cable network) September 14th in Los Angeles If you would like to be in the building for the filming of the pilot episode email Thanks for your support • 18 and over only!”

What’s it Called?

The title has yet to be announced.

What’s it About?

Described by Cottonuity as an American Pickers / Storage Wars-style show. It sounds like it will be a “reality show” that follows the trials and tribulations of the owners of vintage clothing-based businesses.

Who’s in the Cast?

1980 Something Co has stated that a cast has yet to be selected/confirmed. Chris, Tara, and Big Mike are rumored to be in talks with the show. No pilot currently exists, it is set to be filmed on September 14th.

When will it Air?

We can only assume it’s only recently been greenlit, so there is no word on a premiere date.

Stay tuned for more details as they emerge. You can watch Cottonuity’s breaking report here.
