American pickers Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are heading to North Carolina this fall to film episodes of the hit series American Pickers.
“We’re looking for leads throughout the region, specifically interesting people with interesting items and lots of them,” said Cat Raynor, American Pickers casting associate.
American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on the History Channel. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques.
As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.
“They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them,” said Raynor. “Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before.”
Individuals with a large, private collection or an accumulation of antiques that the pickers can spend the better part of a day looking through, can send their name, phone number, location, and description of the collection with photos to [email protected] or call 855-OLD-RUST (855-653-7878).
