DISCOVERY UK ANNOUNCE NEW COMMISSIONS

Discovery UK has commissioned three new series: Secret Life of the Auction House (w/t), Vintage Brokers (w/t) and Supercar Airport (w/t).



Secret Life of the Auction House (w/t)

8x60 Curve Media series goes behind the scenes to show the inner workings of Hansons Auctioneers. Each episode unveils a variety of objects, from the first edition of a Harry Potter book to Queen Victoria’s night dress.



With exclusive and full access, Secret Life of the Auction House (w/t) follows items with fascinating stories from when they come in for valuation to the day they go under the hammer.


Vintage Brokers (w/t)

8x60 show in which antique dealers compete to find their clients the perfect antique item.



From antique lovers looking for something special for their home to hoteliers and restaurateurs looking for an eye-catching centrepiece for their businesses, the customers set a brief and decide which dealer has found their dream antique.


Supercar Airport (w/t)

8x60 series produced by Air TV that follows supercar-dealer supremo, Dean Bartle, as he gives potential buyers a unique test-drive experience at an airport runway, just metres away from his dealership.



Due to the location, Dean is able to offer his customers a no-strings blast in a wide range of supercars at twice the legal speed limit. In each episode, the dealership team will work to get the deals done. The show is due to air on Quest next spring.


Fifth Gear: Recharged

More motoring shows will return in 2023, including the second season of North One-produced Fifth Gear: Recharged. Season 2 will see the 8×60 series delve into the ins and outs of electric cars, including exclusive access to test drive Lamborghini’s new £2.1 million hypercar.



Kings of the Wood

In addition, Quest will welcome the 10×60 second season of Ricochet and Krempelwood-produced Kings of the Wood, with Rich Miller, judge on The Great Pottery Throwdown, joining the show.


After a popular debut season, the show will expand beyond the craft of carpentry to feature metal workers, leather experts and ceramicists all working together to create amazing bespoke items for well-deserving members of the public.



The series were commissioned by Victoria Noble, VP Factual Commissioning, and executive produced by Oliver Wilson and Jon Stephens.
