Series Features the Outrageous Adventures of Collector Richie Marcello, Part Indiana Jones, Part James Bond as He Travels the World to Find Treasures Many Considered Lost Forever

"Treasure King" to Air Wednesdays at 10pm ET/ PT

(Albuquerque, NM) Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - ReelzChannel today announced that Treasure King, the network's new weekly, half-hour reality series will premiere on Wednesday, January 22 at 10pm ET/ PT taking viewers on a wild ride with larger-than-life collector Richie Marcello as he scours the globe to buy and sell some of the world's most highly sought after museum-caliber treasures and rare Hollywood memorabilia many believed to be lost forever. Joined by his team of stunning Gallery Girls, Richie is always on the hunt to uncover relics that naysayers have sworn would never be found. Each week, viewers will see Richie showcase the lucrative items he's found and hear the insider stories that defy belief. Treasure King airs Wednesdays at 10pm ET/ PT and is produced by Asylum Entertainment.

After years in the antique business, Richie is now expanding his territory right into his own backyard - Hollywood. But with a penchant for big-ticket items and a collection that includes The Dukes of Hazzard's General Lee car, R2D2 from Star Wars and Whitney Houston's Schimmel piano, he has to be on his game if he is to avoid being fleeced for hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single sale. One wrong move and he could destroy his business. With a steady stream of high-rolling clients eager to sell Richie their remarkable items, he needs an eagle-eyed team to help him vet through the treasure - and the trash. Helping Richie make his deals are his Gallery Girls Georgina Leahy, Kristen Bitting and Amber Ettinger, all of whom bring their own unique talents and flair to the table.

Georgina Leahy

Georgina is a singing, dancing, snake charming, fire-breathing South East Londoner who has spent most her life on stage and screen - which is exactly why Richie sought her out to be his Music Memorabilia Expert. From musicals and operas to Britain's Got Talent, she just loves all things music. Georgina spent 2011 touring the UK as a backup singer for 80s legend, Adam Ant. Georgina is currently following her dreams in the City of Angels, working for Richie while recording her debut album with the assistance of her snake Slinky Sebastian.

Kristen Bitting

Kristen hails from Philadelphia - home of Rocky, so she knows how to take a punch and give one too. Strong-minded and motivated, this hard-nosed bombshell is a tough negotiator and an even feistier colleague. Not a fan of chick flicks, this gorgeous tomboy prefers movies like Rocky, Death Race and anything with Jason Statham. Although Richie never plays favorites, she's the one he goes to when it comes to getting the job done.

Amber Ettinger

If you recognize Amber, perhaps you're one of the 100 million people who saw her as Obama Girl in the 2007 Internet video sensation. The video led to numerous sketch comedy appearances including Saturday Night Live and nationwide interviews which eventually led her to Richie. Amber is the HNIC... Head Nerd in Charge. Her expertise is science fiction and she has a special place in her heart for all things Battlestar Galactica and Back to the Future.
