DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S ALL NEW SERIES, AUCTION KINGS, PROVES THAT ONE MAN'S TRASH IS ANOTHER MAN'S TREASURE

Series to Premiere Tuesday, October 26 at 10 PM

October 4, 2010

(Silver Spring, Md.) - From 19th century vampire hunting kits to softball-sized meteorites to jewel encrusted gold pencils, Discovery Channel's all new series AUCTION KINGS reveals to viewers a rare look at timeless items that take the audience back to historical moments, while giving them insight to the long-standing tradition of auctioning. The show captures the emotional journey of discovering one-of-a-kind riches - or disappointing rags - on Tuesdays at 10 PM ET/PT, starting October 26.

AUCTION KINGS showcases one of the country's most storied auction houses, Gallery 63. Paul Brown is the owner. He grew up in Atlanta and worked for 20 years at Red Baron's, his dad's antique store and auction house, learning the art of selling and how to tell trash from treasure. Today, Gallery 63 is known for bizarre, high-end items. Paul has made a name for himself as the go-to guy for bidders looking for those one-of-a-kind pieces that can only be found inside his doors.

Paul simultaneously manages his feisty staff, eager buyers and rare items like a circus under the big top. The bidders and sellers come from all walks of life, looking to make money, buy a unique piece or simply enjoy the excitement of winning. When bidding starts, the gloves come off and it's every buyer for himself. AUCTION KINGS is a roller coaster ride filled with thrills and distress, and you never know if it's the buyer or the seller who will get the deal.

In the world premiere episode, a seller comes into Gallery 63 with a softball-sized meteorite from outer space. While he hopes to win enough money to take a second honeymoon to Paris, office manager Cindy hopes it isn't radioactive. Then a weapons collector brings in a vampire hunting kit from the 19th century that could go for big bucks - if it's legit. And Jon, the newest employee, is tasked with sifting through a house jam-packed with junk to find "auction gold." He locates a signed copy of Gone with the Wind and a genuine Nazi handbook from World War II. Or are they?

AUCTION KINGS is produced for Discovery Channel by Authentic Entertainment, Inc. John Moffet is executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Chris Rantamaki is executive producer.
