Reality TV show featuring G-Stone Motors to premier Tuesday
MIDDLEBURY — The Stone family’s tradition of taking virtually anything in trade for vehicles at their G-Stone Motors dealership in Middlebury will be on full display to the nation through the new reality television show, aptly named “Family Trade,” that will premier this Tuesday, March 12, at 8 p.m. on GSN (formerly known as Game Show Network).
The Addison Independent reported last August that the Route 7 South automobile dealership had signed a deal with GSN to star in the show, during which customers present the Stones with interesting items in trade for vehicles.
“Founder Gardner Stone will trade you a beautiful new car or truck for anything you’ve got that he thinks he can sell — pigs, a hot air balloon, coffins, maple syrup, dolls, a shoe collection,” reads a GSN press release previewing the show. “But Stone’s son Todd and daughter Darcy, who work with him in the business, usually have very different ideas about what makes a good trade, and they have the unenviable task of re-selling whatever their father has bought. Each 30-minute episode will feature the outrageous, hilarious, hotly contested barter stories at G-Stone Motors — with a simmering stew of family drama cooking alongside.”
Paul Gendreau, publicist for GSN, said the network has ordered eight episodes of “Family Trade.” Those episodes will air on consecutive Tuesdays, all at 8 p.m. Gendreau said GSN will determine after the eight-episode run whether to order additional shows.
“It’s a great looking show,” Gendreau said of “Family Trade.” “It’s world-class television.”
