- Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to
Illinois! They plan to film episodes of the hit series AMERICAN
PICKERS throughout Illinois with filming scheduled for May.
AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the
fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show
follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, two of the most skilled pickers
in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable
antiques--from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles, to
one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.
As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank
continue their mission to recycle America by rescuing forgotten
relics and giving them a new lease on life, while learning a thing
or two about American history along the way.
AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your
buried treasure. They are on the hunt for characters with
interesting and unique items.
