CASH IN WITH TLC'S NEW SERIES AUCTIONEER$
New 8-part series premieres October 9 at 10 & 10:30 PM
Los Angeles, CA - TLC bids on an all-new Saturday night, taking viewers into the world of high-pressure auctions with AUCTIONEER$. The new eight-part series airs over four weeks starting October 9 at 10 & 10:30 PM ET/PT.
AUCTIONEER$ introduces viewers to the unpredictable and exciting world of auctions - an industry that generates an estimated $276 billion each year in sales of goods and services. TLC goes behind the scenes at one of the busiest auction houses in the country - Phoenix based Auction Systems Auctioneers & Appraisers - where owner Deb Weidenhamer and her staff manage the thousands of items hitting their auction block each week, ready to be sold to the highest bidder.
At these fast-paced events, auctioneers chant away while bidders go head-to-head trying to get the deal of the century. And since the staff never knows what amazing item will come through the door next, or what story it will bring, every auction proves to be a captivating journey into the history of the items put up for bids and the auction world itself. From finding a new item to ensuring its authenticity to getting the best possible price, the series tells the complete story of each item and not only its seller, but the buyer as well.
"Auctions date back 2,000 years, but still prove to be the greatest way to partner sellers auctioning their treasures with buyers who are looking for that once in a lifetime find, creating a cooperative with the seller and buyer alike that results in a winning experience for all," said Deb Weidenhamer, founder of Auction Systems Auctioneers & Appraisers, Inc. "AUCTIONEER$ will share the excitement and opportunity of a live auction, from the famed chant to the final bid."
AUCTIONEER$ is produced for TLC by Mike Mathis Prods., Inc.
