STAKES ARE HIGHER THAN EVER IN DISCOVERY'S NEWEST SERIES "FINAL OFFER"

(New York, NY) - Buying and selling may seem like simple tasks, but when it comes to valuable antiques and rare collectibles, the stakes are higher than ever. In Discovery's new series hosted by Michael Kalish, FINAL OFFER, premiering on Thursday, May 31 at 10 PM ET/PT , Jacob Chait, Patrick Painter, Billy Roland and Jordan Tabach-Bank, four of the country's smartest , shrewdest and most successful dealers will battle it out to bid and buy some of the nation's most desired items. This isn't your typical bidding war - these dealers will be shelling out their own big bucks for unseen high ticket items that demand the necessary expertise to strike a good deal.

From historical artifacts to instruments owned by rock and roll legends, original artwork to motion picture props, these four experts will immediately know the value of these prized goods. In FINAL OFFER, sellers will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to haggle with the series' experts -- one on one, one seller to one buyer, in the order they so choose -- to acquire these rare items for the best possible price. But there's a catch - once they pass on an offer, there is no turning back. The offer is off the table for good and they must head to the next buyer they choose, who hopefully will have a bid at least as high as the last.

It's an intense and dramatic high stakes face-off. If they jump the gun, they may pass up on a future offer that rakes in more money. Viewers will learn from the pros and take a look at the intense, detailed approach to ensure that nobody goes home empty-handed.

Who will take the FINAL OFFER?

FINAL OFFER is produced for Discovery Channel by FremantleMedia North America. George Moll is executive producer and Jeff Altrock is co-executive producer for FremantleMedia North America, and Anna Geddes is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
