Hollywood Treasure is a fun and enjoyable show. Although not specific to a certain genre of movie or television program, the series highlights the Profiles in History Team in their adventures to many locations where extremely rare and unique artifacts of a science fiction, fantasy and or adventure movie nature can be found. The show documents the finding of the ‘treasure’ that is among the most popular blockbuster movies or long lived television series artifacts in history.

Hidden in closets, garages and storage areas across the globe, the owners of the entertainment antiques, set used costumes, scripts, set used vehicles or other rare artifacts are often stunned at the value of the items when Brian Chanes and Tracey McCall of Hollywood Treasure shares with them how much they will garner when sold at auction.
