History to air competition series 'Picked Off'

NEW YORK, June 14 (UPI) -- America's History channel says it plans to air a six-part competition series in which amateur antiquers compete for a $10,000 prize.

"Picked Off," from the producers of "American Pickers," is to debut July 11.

"Weekend pickers go head-to-head in a series of elimination challenges to find items they think will fetch top market value," a synopsis said. "Four teams begin with $100 each to spend on one item … and the clock is ticking. Teams dig through barns and meet interesting characters all in pursuit of the perfect pick. It takes more than knowledge and a good eye to win this competition. Teams will need to be just as strategic as the pro pickers -- and just as tough at hardcore negotiating -- if they're going to out-wheel and out-deal their opponents."
