REELZCHANNEL ANNOUNCES “TREASURE KING” TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 2014 AT 10pm ET/7pm PT
Weekly Reality Series to Follow Richie Marcello and the Gallery Girls Hunting For Treasures Many Considered Lost Forever
(Albuquerque, NM) Monday, February 24, 2014 – ReelzChannel today announced the premiere date for its original reality series Treasure King will be Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT. Treasure King takes viewers on a wild ride with larger-than-life collector Richie Marcello as he scours the globe to buy and sell some of the world’s most highly sought-after museum-caliber treasures and rare Hollywood memorabilia many believed to be lost forever. With a collection that includes the General Lee car from The Dukes of Hazzard, R2D2 from Star Wars, Whitney Houston’s Schimmel piano and other big-ticket items, each week viewers will see Richie showcase his lucrative findings and hear the insider stories that defy belief.
After years in the private antique business, Richie is now expanding his territory into his own backyard – Hollywood. With a steady stream of high-rolling clients eager to sell Richie their remarkable items, he needs an eagle-eyed team to help him vet through the treasure – and the trash. Helping Richie make his deals are his Gallery Girls: Georgina Leahy, Kristen Bitting and Amber Ettinger, all of whom bring their own unique talents and flair to the table. Richie always has to be on his game to avoid being fleeced for hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single sale – one wrong move and he could destroy his business. Treasure King is produced for REELZ by Asylum Entertainment.
