"America's Lost Treasures" on National Geographic Channel is a reality series from acclaimed Emmy Award-winning executive producer Thom Beers ("Deadliest Catch," "Ice Road Truckers") that will visit 10 cities across America in search of objects with historical importance and unexpected value.

Across America, in basements and barns, attics and backyards, there are forgotten links to our national history. Objects with unexpected value and incredible true stories are just waiting to be uncovered. Five to six objects per city will be chosen to be featured in the show, and the two series hosts, with the aid of key staff from a prestigious museum in each city and other independent experts and appraisers, will investigate the object further to reveal the story behind the artifact as well as its worth. Each episode will also take viewers on a behind-the-scenes look at museum research facilities, advanced equipment and authentication teams as we investigate each potential American treasure.

At the end of each episode, owners and their families will gather back at the museum to learn the true story behind their treasured objects. Top possessions featured in the series will receive $10,000 as special recognition for the importance of their artifact in American history.

"America's Lost Treasures" is produced by Thom Beers' Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company. For Original Productions, executive producers are Thom Beers and Philip D. Segal; co-executive producers are Gayle Gilman and Jeff Conroy. For the National Geographic Channel, executive producer is Kathleen Cromley and executive vice president of programming is Michael Cascio.
