The Adventure Continues!

Planet Pictures launches second season of AUCTION ADVENTURE on Scripps-owned Fine Living Network.

Series premieres weekends, primetime. Check your local listings for airdates and times.

Our viewers have already witnessed the sale of Eric Clapton's most renown guitars.

We've seen dinosaurs crowd a preview hall and march off to the four corners of the world with new owners. We've even welcomed the Titanic--what's left of it--finally making port in New York, only to run aground once again--on the auction block.

That was last season. Now the adventure gets even better.

Intrepid Auction Adventure host Michael Eldridge matches nerves and strategy with the most auction-savvy bidders in the world and shows us how to walk away with one-of-a-kind treasures at bargain-basement prices. This season we'll find out how to land a deal on everything from rare rock music memorabilia to Arabian horses. We'll see our favorite superheroes fly once again at the world's biggest auction of rare comic books. And we'll discover a unique case where maybe crime DOES pay--at least in terms of the "steals" bidders can walk away with at a recent law-enforcement auction of seized property!
