Join KUED Monday July 16th at 8:00 p.m. for Market Warriors
From the producers of Antiques Roadshow, the hit PBS series and the forerunner of television’s popular antiques and collectibles genre, comes a new adventure for treasure seekers: Market Warriors, beginning Monday July 16.
Market Warriors follows antiques pickers—Bob, John, Kevin, and Miller—on a nationwide treasure hunt, scouring flea markets for antiques and vintage valuables with an eye toward selling their finds for profit at auction. Over the course of 20 one-hour episodes, viewers will get to know the pickers, enjoy an up-close look at the fierce competition in each episode and obstacles they face in the marketplace each week, and make their best guesses about who will come out ahead at the end of each episode.
Fred Willard (Best in Show, Modern Family) is Market Warriors' off-screen host, offering wry commentary throughout the show. As host, the show is filtered through his eyes.
“With Market Warriors, we wanted to turn the lens on the antiques pickers themselves,” says series executive producer Marsha Bemko. “Our pickers aren’t your amateur weekend-flea-market hobbyists. They are pros looking to turn a profit in a highly competitive setting where the element of chance and a little luck sometimes trump expertise. And who better to guide viewers through the challenges our pickers face than Fred Willard, who brings to the series both his signature improvisational skills and the eye and know-how of a collector.”
"Market Warriors" is a perfect complement to Antiques Roadshow, building on our audience’s passion for history and antiques. Together they offer an addictive two hours of flea markets, antiques and unique finds,” said John F. Wilson, Senior Vice President & Chief TV Programming Executive.
