Premise: No cash, no problem for the entrepreneurs featured in this reality series. Focusing on the thriving subculture of cashless trading, ``Barter Kings'' follows Steve McHugh and Antonio Palazzola, ``two of the best barterers in the business,'' says A&E Network, of trading up from low-value items to items worth thousands of dollars. Value is subjective, but the guys rely on their knowledge of current market prices, and they're not afraid to make multiple transactions in order to get their hands on what they really want. Steve's attempts, for instance, to find a speedboat for his family begins with trading some vintage Elvis memorabilia, while a used computer is Antonio's starting point to secure a pickup truck.
