TY PENNINGTON FINDS A NEW WAY TO CHANGE LIVES AS HE BRINGS PEOPLE'S HIDDEN TREASURES TO "THE GREAT BIG AMERICAN AUCTION," THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8 ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

Ty Pennington has spent years making dreams come true by transforming people's homes. Now the host of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" has found an exciting new way to change people's lives -- by helping them turn their collectibles and hidden finds into treasures.

In "The Great Big American Auction," Pennington travels the country scouring flea markets, cellars & attics, yard sales and back alleys to find one-of-a-kind items whose owners have no idea of their real value. With exceptional collectibles ranging from a first edition classic comic book to a pristine and extremely rare Abraham Lincoln $500 bill from the late 19th century, Ty and his team of experts from Heritage Auctions unearth an amazing array of extraordinary finds. The best items from around the country are tagged and brought to "The Great Big American Auction," where a room full of potential buyers outbid each other in a suspenseful standoff. Random objects originally bought for mere dollars will go for hundreds of thousands, as their lucky owners' lives are forever changed. Let the bidding begin, on "The Great Big American Auction," THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on The ABC Television Network.

"The Great Big American Auction" is produced by Cineflix (Auction) Inc. for ABC. Executive producers are Lisa Levenson, Ty Pennington, Joe Houlihan and Simon Lloyd.

Cineflix is a leading international media company that brings together global broadcast and production partners, major talent, and key executives to create top quality original content produced and distributed for television and other platforms.

A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
