'American Pickers' calling for 'hidden treasures'
A TV troupe that scours the U.S. for pieces of America’s past is looking for people with “hidden treasures” in Michigan.
“American Pickers,” a documentary series that airs at 9 p.m. on Mondays on the History channel, said today that it will film episodes in Michigan in August.
The shoot locations will be determined based on where the team can find sizeable collections of antiques between now and August.
The show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz through back roads and small towns from coast to coast as they hunt for America’s most-valuable antiques.
When they find a treasure trove of historic items, they spend the episode hearing stories about the items from the collectors.
“Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items,” according to Cineflix Productions, producer of the series.
Call for “treasures”
“American Pickers” is looking for leads in Michigan.
The show is inviting those with a large “private collection” or an “accumulation of antiques” that will take a day to sort through to send their name, phone number, location and description of the collection, with photos, to americanpickers at cineflix dot com or call (855) OLD-RUST.
