"Pawn Stars" is a reality docu-series on History Channel. For thousands of years, people all over the world have found themselves with one problem in common: the need for fast cash. Long before banks, ATMs, and check-cashing services, pawnbrokers have provided monetary loans in exchange for personal items of value, and are still helping everyday people make ends meet today. The fascinating world and history of the pawning business is revealed in the hit History television series, "Pawn Stars."

"Pawn Stars" takes viewers inside the doors of the only family-run pawnshop in Las Vegas, where three generations of men from the Harrison family— grandfather Richard, son Rick and grandson Corey—jointly run the business, with clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. This family lives and breathes the pawning business, using their sharp-eyed skills to carefully assess the value of items their colorful customers bring in, objects ranging from the obscure to the truly historic. Their pawnshop shelves are filled with an eclectic array of items— each with its own unique story and past.

From a 15th century samurai sword to a Picasso painting and vintage cars, there isn't much these guys haven't seen or heard, inevitably making them experts in rare collectables and negotiating, as they must carefully appraise the worth of each item, determine if it's real or fake and then reveal the often surprising answer to, "What's it worth?" And, when these amateur historians don't have the answer, they call upon their network of experts for help.

Each episode of "Pawn Stars" features an array of quirky characters attempting to sell, purchase or pawn items. Everything and everyone has a story and it's the Harrison family's job to decipher fact from fiction, because in this business the customer isn't always right.

"Pawn Stars" is produced for History by Leftfield Pictures. David McKillop and Mary Donahue are Executive Producers for History. Executive Producers for Leftfield Pictures are Brent Montgomery and Colby Gaines.
