LOS ANGELES, CA (January 23, 2014) -- Celebrities welcome viewers into their homes for a trip down memory lane and an exclusive look into their lives and prized possessions in Lifetime's all-new unscripted series Celebrity Home Raiders. The series premieres Thursday, March 6, 2014, at 10pm ET/PT.

In each half-hour episode of Celebrity Home Raiders, host Kit Hoover (Access Hollywood Live) and renowned auctioneers Darren Julien and Martin Nolan from Julien's Auctions, reminisce with celebrities as they search through their belongings for beloved treasures to be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting a charity of each celebrity's choice. The stars invite Kit, Darren and Martin into their homes to discuss the history and sentiment of their personal memorabilia while haggling over each item's value. Potential items up for auction include David Hasselhoff's replica of KITT from Knight Rider, an Axe guitar owned and used by Gene Simmons from KISS, and many other highly coveted items. Will the objects' final price meet the celebrities' expectation and - more importantly - will they reach their charitable donation goals? The featured celebrities and their charities are:

· David Cassidy benefiting Alzheimer's Association of America

· David Hasselhoff benefiting Starlight Foundation

· Debbie Gibson benefiting Children International

· Fran Drescher benefiting Cancer Schmancer

· Ice T & Coco benefiting The Long Island Bulldog Rescue Group
