An upcoming PBS show that’s a spinoff of its popular "Antiques Roadshow" has tapped comedian Fred Willard to narrate the program and provide wry commentary, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Market Warriors," which will debut Monday, July 16, at 9 p.m., tracks four expert antiques shoppers who will visit flea markets to find items to resell for a profit at auction, the piece adds.

"We are sometimes criticized for not having a sense of humor, and I think Fred will enable us to counter that a little bit,” said PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger.

Willard himself is a collector, focusing on sports memorabilia, the story adds.
