In the newly announced A&E series, What’s It Worth?, comedian and collector Jeff Foxworthy remotely travels the USA in search of hidden treasures lurking in your home.
Everyone has an inherited collectible, or an old piece that they aren’t quite sure about. Now Foxworthy will find out—with the help of experts—to determine if you may have a true treasure.
In a 30-minute format, Jeff goes in search of hidden treasures and unusual objects owned by everyday people with hopes to maybe find a truly valuable asset.
The new series debuts ahead of the previously announced two-hour live series, What’s It Worth? Live which will launch this Fall, 2020.
A&E says: “From the comfort of their homes, Foxworthy and a team of experts examine a variety of heirlooms, trinkets and treasures to help people determine if they are sitting on a gold mine, or if they are just holding on to items for the sentimental value.”
They add: “With people across the nation spending more time inside their homes than ever, this half hour series follows Jeff as he scours the country in search of truly unique possessions and collectibles with shocking values—without ever leaving his Georgia man cave.”
A&E August Summer lineup news
Also today, A&E announced not just Foxworthy’s new series, but another as part of its Summer 2020 lineup.
Joining What’s It Worth? is new series Extreme Unboxing. The series shows a group of entrepreneurs as they buy large boxes of discounted merchandise for pennies on the dollar, sight unseen.
What’s in those boxes? Who knows, as viewers at home will watch as each team bets big and reveals the contents of the boxes which could be a financial windfall or a total bust.
