Cash in the Attic will make a comeback to highlight collectible items relevant to today’s audiences. Courtney Tezeno, a passionate collector, and her team of expert appraisers will sort through homes looking for classic toys, vintage comics, original video games and other valuable pop culture treasures to sell at auction. Homeowners will use the money to fund life-changing dreams, such as a down payment on a new house or a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Premieres on HGTV Friday, October 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
It is based on the original BBC format, which ran in the UK to nearly 600 episodes, with the US version produced by Argonon-owned Leopard USA. Executive producers are Argonon duo Lindsay Schwartz and James Burstall, with Gabe Cunningham attached as showunner.
“We expect a wide audience to tune in for Cash in the Attic because they appreciate the nostalgic value of sports memorabilia or Beanie Babies and they may find out that they can turn something that’s gathering dust into good money,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV.
