See Jesse McClure, who shot to fame in US reality show Storage Hunters is back on UK television screens this autumn in brand new six-part series British Treasure, American Gold premiering on Quest every Wednesday at 8.00pm. He will be appearing at the Platinum Theatre at 1pm on Friday and is ready to field your questions about what’s popular in the world of British collectibles and how by pure, pester power he made this series happen. Go Jesse! Jesse has put $100k of his family’s hard earned cash on the line as he hits the streets in search of the biggest and boldest bargains Britain has to offer before shipping them back to the US in an effort to turn a profit in the family’s LA antique store. At Comic Con he will be showing an exclusive episode prior to airing on Quest TV.
This all new series is a vibrant and original take on the world of antiques and trading. Jesse McClure, self-dubbed ‘Resale King’ heads to the UK complete with his 1978 black Pontiac Firebird (named Lily) to travel the length and breadth of the country searching for antiques and collectibles. He visits stately homes, collectors’ markets and even car boot sales on the hunt for typically British curios and valuable artefacts to send back to his family’s antique business in Los Angeles.
From bone china vases to Elton John’s gold plated sink, vintage one armed bandits, armoured military vehicles and Britney Spears’s thong! ‘British Treasure, American Gold’ focuses on the unique and unexpected side of British history, shining an American spotlight on the country’s eclectic past.
Quest is available on Sky 144, Virgin 172, Freeview & YouView 37.
