ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, the beloved TV icon known for sharing the hidden treasures and stories of people across America, will for the first time give fans a peek inside the personal collections of celebrities in four one-hour ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, Celebrity Edition special episodes airing in May on SO PBS.  

“A secret of ROADSHOW’s success is the instant connection between the viewer and the guest, forged through the authentic personalities and surprising histories seen on screen,” said ANTIQUES ROADSHOW executive producer Marsha Bemko. “That winning quality is amplified in these special episodes as fans will get to know our celebrity guests and their treasures in that same way. Because it’s true, stars really are just like us!”  

Part of the 18-time Emmy® Award-nominated series’ 25th season, the four special episodes will reveal the personal stories and intriguing collections of well-known figures from the worlds of film, television, music, comedy, journalism, literature and sports.
