'Market Warriors' Premieres July 16
The producer of Antiques Roadshow -- a WKAR viewer favorite -- has a new treat for treasure seekers! Market Warriors premieres Monday, July 16, at 9 p.m.
Each episode follows antiques pickers Bob, John, Kevin, and Miller on a nationwide treasure hunt, scouring flea markets for antiques and vintage valuables with an eye toward selling their finds for profit at auction. Over the course of 20 one-hour episodes, viewers will get to know the pickers, enjoy an up-close look at the fierce competition in each episode and obstacles they face in the marketplace each week, and make their best guesses about who will come out ahead at the end of each episode.
“Our pickers aren’t your amateur weekend-flea-market hobbyists," says executive producer Marsha Bemko. "They are pros looking to turn a profit in a highly competitive setting where the element of chance and a little luck sometimes trump expertise. And who better to guide viewers through the challenges our pickers face than Fred Willard, who brings to the series both his signature improvisational skills and the eye and know-how of a collector.”
