Spike TV to Premiere First Ever Live Auction Event Wednesday, March 21 at 9:00 pm

Mike Catherwood Hosts One Hour Live Broadcast From A High-End Auction In Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 29, 2012 -- Spike TV raises the stakes as for the first time ever the networks highest-rated non-scripted original series "Auction Hunters" premieres a special, one hour LIVE auction event. Showcasing two of the best prospectors in the business, Allen Haff and Ton Jones, the episode will broadcast LIVE from an exclusive storage auction in Los Angeles. Hosted by "Loveline" co-host and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Mike Catherwood, "Auction Hunters: Live" premieres Wednesday, March 21 at 9:00 PM, ET, immediately followed by the series premiere of "American Digger."

"Auction Hunters: Live" follows Haff and Jones at a white-glove only auction in Los Angeles, as the duo is challenged to condense a week's worth of work into one hour of LIVE television. Haff and Jones will have to hurry to buy a unit, dig through it, and select a few items to present for sale to the assembled group of on-set experts. The pressure is on as this rare auction could potentially lead to their biggest payday or greatest loss to date. With the cameras rolling and the stakes higher than ever, Spike's "Auction Hunters" are primed for the ultimate challenge.

"Auction Hunters: Live" kicks-off season three of the series on its new day and time Wednesday, March 28 (9:00 PM, ET/PT) with back-to-back episodes filmed in Alaska. Additional locations for the new season include New Orleans, Washington D.C., New York City, Honolulu, Denver and Los Angeles.

"Auction Hunters" is produced by Gurney Productions and executive produced by Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney. Sharon Levy is Spike TV's Executive Vice President, Original Series, Tim Duffy is Senior Vice President of Original Programming for Spike TV, and Jeff Savaiano serves as the Executive in Charge of Production.

About "Auction Hunters"

Every year in America, 50,000 storage facilities hold auctions for abandoned storage units and, at these auctions, over $1 billion worth of goods changes hands. Each unit has the potential to be a goldmine or a bust for those who make their living hunting unclaimed property. "Auction Hunters" cuts the lock and opens the door into the high stakes, financial risks and potential rewards where the right purchase can bring in serious cash. The series follows Haff and Jones in their quest to win auctions, dig for abandoned historical treasure and sell them for a profit.
