Live-action production has been one of the pandemic’s biggest challenges for TV networks but they are figuring out ways around those challenges. One of them is to go virtual, which is what A&E did with new reality series, What’s It Worth?, starring comedian Jeff Foxworthy. In the series, people show Foxworthy and his team of experts their objects via remote video chat and then they go to work determining that item’s value.
A&E also rolled out the trailer for another reality series, Extreme Unboxing:
In this series, similar to Storage Wars, treasure hunters hope to make their fortunes by buying, sight unseen, pallets of goods that have been returned to online retailers. If what’s inside the pallets is good, the buyers stand to make money by reselling the items online. But sometimes what’s inside isn’t worth anything. And they only find out what they’ve got on their hands when they open the box.
What’s It Worth premieres Tuesday, August 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on A&E, with Extreme Unboxing following at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
