Collector's CallSeason two!
Sundays at 9:30 PMeastern (on most MeTV stations)
MeTV Network, America's No. 1 classic television network, proudly presents its first original TV series, Collector's Call. Hosted by Lisa Whelchel (Blair on The Facts of Life), the unscripted series introduces you to some of the biggest collectors of pop culture memorabilia in the country.
- 1/19 9:30PMMeet George"Elvis superfan George has spent decades building a collection covering the entire reign of the King of Rock and Roll. His hundreds of records, movie posters, fan magazines and more take up nearly every inch of his home. He shares with Lisa such prize rarities as a life-size movie-theater cutout for 1956’s Love Me Tender; a mint-condition Elvis board game; a pristine Mylar banner for the King’s 1973 Hawaiian concert; and a pair of vintage, never-worn Elvis sneakers. George is joined by his wife Joanne, who has become his partner in all things Elvis; and we’ve brought certified appraiser (and lifelong Elvis fan) Judy Martin to put a price on the collection. Judy has also brought a rare Elvis comic-book appearance that she’ll try to persuade George to take in trade for one of his other treasures."
- 1/26 9:30PMMeet Ralph Garman"As a well-known radio personality, actor, author and entertainer, Ralph Garman knows the ins and outs of show business; but his Batman ’66 collection is a product of his lifelong love for the TV show, not to mention his friendship with Adam West, who played the Caped Crusader. Ralph’s extensive collection, which he houses in his very own Batcave, includes the costume West wore as Batman; Catwoman’s screen-used belt; and even a limited-edition pedal-car replica of the famous Batmobile. Joining Ralph is his friend Nina Tooley, Adam West’s daughter, who has never even seen many of these Batman collectibles. Rob Klein, a pop-culture historian, will appraise Ralph’s collection, and then see if he can convince Ralph to give up something from his collection in trade for some Batman items Ralph doesn’t already have."
- 2/2 9:30PMMeet Ed Montalvo"Ed Montalvo is an engineer by day, wood-burning artist and The Twilight Zone collector by night. He has roughly 1,600 unique The Twilight Zone related items in his collection, including a script signed by the show’s creator, Rod Serling; props from the original The Twilight Zone series; and over 1,000 autographs of actors who appeared on the iconic show. We’re joined by Ed’s sister, Annette Kirscher, as well as auction house owner Gabe Fajuri, who will put a value on Ed’s extensive collection. We also have a very special surprise for Ed: a message from accomplished The Twilight Zone director Robert Butler. And in the end, Gabe, our expert, will try to trade away a unique The Twilight Zone-related item for one of Ed’s most frightening possessions."
