HGTV recently announced that after 11 years, it has greenlit six new episodes of its popular series Cash in the Attic.

The show’s latest iteration has been retooled to highlight collectible items relevant to today’s audiences and will star Hightower High School alum, Courtney Tezeno.

In the series, Tezeno, a passionate collector, accompanied by her team of expert appraisers, Elyse Luray, Jean David Michel and Marvin Jules, sort through homes looking for classic toys, vintage comics, original video games and other valuable pop culture treasures. Once the items are sold for top dollar at auction, the homeowners will use the money to fund life-changing dreams, such as a down payment on a new house or a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Cash in the Attic is slated to air later this year.

“We expect a wide audience to tune in for Cash in the Attic because they appreciate the nostalgic value of sports memorabilia or Beanie Babies and they may find out that they can turn something that’s gathering dust into good money,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV, in the recent press release.

The Missouri City native calls the show a true “blessing.” “I can’t thank God enough for blessing me with this opportunity and a dream team,” said Tezeno.

She describes the show as “fresh, heartwarming” and a perfect fit for her, as she and her team of professional appraisers change lives one house at a time.
