After Toby Barlow's recent piece in The New York Times about a couple that moved to Detroit to buy a $100 home, it was only a matter of time before the story got more play. So we weren't surprised when, last weekend, Design 99 and Power House couple Mitch Cope and Gina Reichert told us that news crews from ABC were coming to interview the them about how they helped the out-of-towners find the home that would sell for a Benji. And tonight, at 10 p.m. EST, ABC's 20/20 will tell their story. Tune on in.
