American Pickers to film in Michigan
CASPIAN/NEW YORK—The popular History Channel show “American Pickers” will return to Michigan in August, and hosts Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team are seeking people in the area with unique antique collections and interesting stories behind them.
“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking.” The hit show follows Wolfe and Fritz, 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,” stated a press release from Cineflix, USA. “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.
“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. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.”
“American Pickers” is looking for leads. Those who have or know of someone with a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the ‘Pickers’ can spend the better part of the day looking through are asked to send name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 855-OLD-RUST.

Wolfe and Fritz can only pick private collections, so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public are eligible.
