In search of America’s hidden treasures for the series’ 25th season, Antiques Roadshow is coming to Williamsburg on Tuesday, April 28, as part of its 2020 production tour! PBS’s most-watched ongoing series celebrates this milestone with stops exclusively at distinctive, historic locations across the country.
“Holding events at these locations allows our cameras to film appraisals in and around places that are treasures in their own right, adding an exciting depth to our show,” said Roadshow executive producer Marsha Bemko. “I can’t wait to see what treasures we uncover in Williamsburg. And stay tuned, we’ll be revealing the historic location we’ve selected very soon!”
From each of the 2020 events, three episodes of Roadshow per city will be created for inclusion in the 17-time Emmy® Award nominated production’s 25th broadcast season, to air in 2021. Produced by WGBH Boston, Antiques Roadshow is seen by up to 8 million viewers each week. Antiques Roadshow airs locally Mondays at 8 p.m. on WHRO.
