A&E announces 'Quest for Lost WWE Treasures' memorabilia series
July 26, 2020
A&E and WWE Studios are partnering together for a new series focused on WWE memorabilia.
It was announced today that A&E Network has greenlit a series with the working title “The Quest for Lost WWE Treasures.” It will be hosted by Stephanie McMahon and Paul “Triple H” Levesque and will take viewers “on the ultimate hunt to find some of WWE’s most iconic, lost memorabilia.”
The series will feature 10 one-hour episodes.
Here’s A&E’s description for the series:
In each episode, WWE’s Stephanie McMahon and Paul “Triple H” Levesque, will lead a team of collectors, WWE Superstars and Legends as they investigate, negotiate, bid and travel across the country to hunt down and reclaim some of the most elusive WWE collectibles.
Throughout history, WWE’s action-packed storylines have spawned iconic, one-of-a-kind memorabilia, most of which is lost in attics, hidden in boxes or even claimed by competitors. Guided by McMahon and Levesque, the series will unearth these rare items in the hopes of preserving and sharing the legacy behind the memorable moments in WWE history. Episodes will feature exclusive WWE footage as well as unprecedented access to the WWE Archives, which holds more than 10,000 rarities including Andre the Giant’s custom boots, Vince McMahon’s cement-filled Corvette, The Undertaker’s caskets and more. Over the course of ten one-hour episodes, WWE Superstars and Legends will give viewers a unique look into WWE history as they seek out the missing treasures that have left a lasting mark on pop culture.
WWE Studios’ Susan Levison and Ben Zierten and A&Es Elaine Frontain Bryant, Dolores Gavin, and Jonathan Partridge are serving as executive producers for “The Quest for Lost WWE Treasures.”
It was noted that the new series joins the previously announced greenlight of five “Biography” documentaries that A&E and WWE are partnering together for. Those were announced last year and will be focused on Randy Savage, Roddy Piper, Booker T, Steve Austin, and Shawn Michaels.
