<strong>‘American Pickers’ to film in Arizona</strong>

American Pickers is returning to Arizona with plans to film episodes of The History Channel hit television show throughout the state in September 2023.

American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking.” The show follows skilled pickers as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, they are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, they meet characters with amazing stories and fun items. They hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

The Pickers are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them. The show is looking for leads and if you or someone you know has a unique item, story to tell, and is ready to sell, American Pickers would love to hear from you.

While they do not pick stores, flea markets, malls, auctions, museums or anything open to the public, if interested email americanpickers@cineflix.com, call 646-493-2184, or on Facebook @GotAPick.
