TV series based on Morphy Auctions debuts in Australia
An exciting new series based on Morphy Auctions of Denver, made its primetime debut on Australian television Oct. 22.
Titled Million Dollar Auctions, the show is carried on FOXTEL’s A&E channel, which delivers original and exclusive programming from the U.S. cable giant to Australian audiences in high definition. Million Dollar Auctions joins a powerful lineup of hit shows on FOXTEL A&E that includes American Pickers, Storage Wars and Dog the Bounty Hunter.
The Australian deal with FOXTEL was concluded at Mip TV (Cannes, France) earlier this year by exclusive sales agent and production company Icon Television. Icon TV will have 13 half-hour episodes of Million Dollar Auctions finished by December. The show has generated interest from networks in 10 other countries, including the United States.
"What sets our show apart from some others is that it’s not a reality show as most people would think of the term," said Morphy Auctions CEO Dan Morphy, the central figure in Million Dollar Auctions.
"From the beginning, we set out to produce a series that was genuine and unscripted, with the goal of entertaining as we educated viewers about antiques and collectibles."
Million Dollar Auctions is the creation of Dan Morphy (executive producer), award-winning filmmaker Glenn Aveni (director, executive producer) and Bob Newman (executive producer).
Each episode of Million Dollar Auctions incorporates privileged visits to advanced collectors’ homes, valuations of items that might be lying dormant in anyone’s attic; and actual auction footage taken at Morphy’s gallery, where winning bids decisively reveal what’s hot in today’s marketplace.
In the opening episode, Morphy and his team visit the world’s largest Coca-Cola collection, appraise a rare Mr. Peanut window display, and auction a fantastic lineup of valuable robots.
Episode 2, which aired Oct. 29, includes a visit to a $3 million private collection of marbles, plus segments on superhero comics and a prized 19th-century slot machine.
Million Dollar Auctions airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. local time on FOXTEL A&E. For info on upcoming episodes and repeat times, log on to foxtel.com.au. View the video trailer at http://vimeo.com/78014195. Visit Morphy’s online at morphyauctions.com.
