‘American Pickers' Seek East Texas Opportunities
Texas is excited to welcome Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and Antique Archeology to the area. The team will film episodes of their hit series American Pickers throughout the state and is working with the Northeast Texas Film Commission, Longview, for possible work in East Texas. Filming is scheduled for early October.
American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on the History channel. This hit show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Wolfe and Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars, and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. The pair is on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.
The TV show’s crew is looking for leads and would love to explore what you may have. They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what they look for: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, and pre-1950s western gear.
American Pickers is produced by Cineflix Productions for the History channel. New episodes air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. CT.
