Moving out of a family home can be an incredibly emotional experience; as each room is decluttered and every box filled up with a lifetime of belongings, decades of personal history can be unearthed.
US pubcaster PBS has renewed antiques series Legacy List with Matt Paxton for a second season, produced by Michael Yudin’s New York-based MY Entertainment (MYE).

Matt Paxton is filming a new show called “Legacy List” that will air on local PBS station VPM.
Paxton and his team go through the house of someone 50+ who’s about to downsize and they scour for family memorabilia — often items the owner can’t locate. Some of the possessions to unearth are sentimental; some are historic; some seem to tell stories of descendants. Earthly treasures, all.
After leaving the show and TV, Matt told me recently, “I started to kind of look for a real job and I didn’t want one.” He create that job instead: he started his own production company and developed a new reality show focused on telling positive stories, which he thought the world needed and wanted—and that networks rejected.
Matt Paxton helps people downsize their homes and shares the stories on PBS television.
Matt Paxton is right where he wants to be. He’s back in his hometown, raising his kids in the Bon Air neighborhood where he grew up, and he’s back on TV telling the stories he really wants to tell.
When you think about downsizing your home and relocating, there’s a word that probably comes to mind: yecch. The process can be time-consuming, agonizing, frustrating and just plain sad. But, as the new public television series Legacy List shows (check local listings), downsizing also has an upside.
As baby boomers downsize living spaces and settle estates, THE LEGACY LIST WITH MATT PAXTON helps aging homeowners catalog a lifetime of belongings, locating treasured heirlooms and unexpected valuables in the attic, closet, or even under the floorboards.
