NEW YORK – Syfy’s hit series Hollywood Treasure, starring collectibles expert Joe Maddalena, will return for its second season Tuesday, May 22 at 10PM (ET/PT). Each episode takes viewers into the fascinating world of showbiz and pop culture memorabilia, with the season opener traveling to “Middle-earth” and featuring actor Sean Astin’s fantastic Lord of the Rings collection.
Upcoming season two episodes will showcase the Whitney Houston costume from The Bodyguard; the house in American Horror Story; items from the television series Lost; the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard; the original camera George Lucas used to film Star Wars and Maddalena’s personal Holy Grail – the lost pair of Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz.
During its Summer 2011 season, Hollywood Treasure ranked in the top 10 cable unscripted series in its 10PM time period, finishing #7 among Adults 25-54 and #8 in Adults 18-49.
Each episode of the documentary-reality series follows Maddalena – owner of Profiles in History and the world’s largest auctioneer of original movie, television, science fiction, fantasy and pop culture collectibles – as he and his crew travel the globe searching for the most compelling, rare, and sought-after Hollywood memorabilia.
Some of Maddalena’s previous finds include the Wicked Witch of the West’s hat from The Wizard of Oz and the vintage Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car. Last season, he worked with Debbie Reynolds to auction off her extraordinary estate of film costume and prop memorabilia.
