History Channel picked up a new game show, Pawnography, based on hit series Pawn Stars.
The new game show is set to premiere on the History Channel this summer. Leftfield Pictures produces Pawnography and there is an order for 10 episodes. The announcement of the new game show came from History Channel’s Senior Vice President of Programming and Development, Elaine Frontain Bryant.
“We are thrilled to work with Leftfield Pictures on this exciting and challenging new game show that combines the two elements that make Pawn Stars an absolute fan favorite – history and the fun, family-dynamic between the Harrison’s and Chumlee,” said Frontain Bryant. “This show gives viewers the chance to go head-to-head with the man who knows a little bit about everything, Rick Harrison, and take home treasurable items from the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawnshop.”
Pawnography will have contestants competing against each other and ‘The Pawn Stars‘ in order to win money and coveted items from the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawnshop. The show will have three rounds trivia style questions that progressively get more difficulty as the rounds advance. Each episode will have Rick, Corey and Chumlee defending their treasured items from the contestants. Some of the items come from Rick’s personal collection. This may be the only game show where they do not want the contestants to win.
Executive producers for History are Russ McCarroll, Zachary Behr and Elaine Frontain Bryant with Brent Montgomery, David George, Shawn Witt, and Michael Binkow as executive producers for Leftfield Pictures.
