“Antiques Roadshow” will air three Charleston-based episodes on South Carolina ETV on February 15, 22 and 29 at 8 p.m. as part of its new 20th anniversary season.
The 13-time Emmy®-nominated series came to Charleston in August of 2015 as part of its six-city summer production tour. More than 4,500 guests attended the all-day appraisal event where guests received valuations of their antiques and collectibles from specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers.
“We were thrilled to film in Charleston as part of our 20th season, where we found some amazing treasures,” says executive producer Marsha Bemko. “Unexpected discoveries included items like a collection of Jimi Hendrix items acquired by a concert-goer at a 1970 show in Stockholm, Sweden held just weeks before the famous musician’s death.”
“Ticket requests for our Charleston taping last summer were the second-highest in the nation,” said Linda O’Bryon, President and CEO of South Carolina ETV. “Our most popular local programs usually involve South Carolina history and culture, and ‘Antiques Roadshow’ is a wonderful way to share our stories with a national audience.”
As part of its new season, “Antiques Roadshow” reveals a surprising scope of treasures, and viewers will see a new show opening, a new set and new “snapshot” feature that ultimately delivers more appraisals than ever before in each hour-long episode.
