Aussie Pickers Coming To A&E Channel On Foxtel
Foxtel told me a couple of months ago that they were commissioning a local version of a show that is screened on A&E. I thought it might be Storage Wars, however it has been announced it is Aussie Pickers, based on the format of you guessed it American Pickers.
The premise of the show is two “pickers” hit the back roads and barnyards of Australia, earning a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person’s trash into another’s treasure.
A&E are commissioning a 10 part series with Shine Australia producing it.
The series will follow the Australian pickers as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and sheds, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories.
The hosts of Aussie Pickers will be announced in the coming weeks.
Aussie Pickers will be on A&E in 2013.
