American Pickers

Cineflix Inc. Produces a documentary series called "American Pickers" which explores the fascinating world of antique 'picking'. Which is aired on the "History Channel".

The high profile show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business 'Mike Wolfe' and 'Frank Fritz' as they embark on an epic road trip across the US. The show offers a fascinating insight into what it's like to be the men on the ground who are on the front-lines of the antique industry. The show follows the pickers in their truck as they go on a mission in search of America's most fascinating and valuable antiques - treasures that have been long forgotten in junkyards and barns across the country. The team tracks down unique and interesting items from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.

The series follows the highs and lows of the trade as our team gets their hands dirty in the search of weird and wonderful hidden treasures. The show examines how determination and amazing instincts drive the picker.
