History is developing a new series called Rusty Nuts, which will be a spin off from their popular reality hit Pawn Stars [THR]:
The network has made a deal with Leftfield Pictures for “Rusty Nuts,” in which restoration expert Rick Dale brings trashed treasures back to life.
Dale owns Las Vegas-based Rick’s Restorations and is the go-to guy for the “Pawn Stars” team whenever the shop has an antique that needs improvement (such as a Coke machine, barber chair or 1937 gas pump).
Each episode of “Nuts” follows Dale, his staff and teenage son as they restore objects to their original, mint condition.
The series is set to debut on Monday, October 18, 2010 with two half-hour episodes at 9:00 and 9:00 p.m.
