Flea Market Reality Show Being Shot in Houston
Stormville is not the location, in case you're confused
The Pawn Stars may be elsewhere, but when it comes to flea-market superstars, Houston is about to shine.
The National Geographic Network is producing a show that
rips off is inspired by the various pawn-shop reality TV series on the air, and it's shooting it in the Houston area.
This news comes to us via Flea Market Zone, which is not some flea-market version of TMZ but rather an industry publication.
Fleaman is the working title of the show, and it will feature "a 'true flea market veteran' who will help people on the show evaluate and sell items at flea markets and swap meets."

So not only is it not at all like Pawn Stars, it's also not at all like Antiques Roadshow.
FMZ reports that the show plans to shoot at a large flea market about an hour outside of town, but it's not Traders Village.
Traders Village is busy opening a San Antonio location, but a representative said it would be amenable for future seasons of the show. As if.
