Season 18 Expands to Eight City Visits
COSTA MESA, Calif. (January 7, 2013) – Antiques Roadshow, PBS’s highest-rated ongoing primetime series, is coming to Anaheim, Calif. where local PBS SoCaL fans will be able to attend this unique event and get appraisals from nationally known experts.
The series will be taping in Anaheim on June 22, and the Southern California stop is part of a larger tour this year. “By adding more cities to this year’s tour, Roadshow fans will get their fill as we’re producing more Roadshow than ever before,” said executive producer Marsha Bemko. “We’ve expanded to include two additional stops, which means meeting an additional 10,000 guests this summer. With an eight-city tour we’ll be treated to even more discoveries of America’s stories.”
Programs taped during the 2013 summer tour will make up Roadshow’s 18th broadcast season on PBS SoCaL, premiering in January 2014.
