NBCSN Will Produce An Episode of “Mecum Prime” At Every One Of The 12 Mecum Car Auctions in 2014
STAMFORD, Conn. – February 19, 2014 – NBC Sports Group’s coverage of Mecum Collector Car Auctions continues with an all-new one-hour series “Mecum Prime” which will premiere tomorrow, Thursday February 20th, at 7:00 p.m. EST/PST on NBCSN.
“Mecum Prime” is an all new kind of car show. Part car auction, part reality show, “Mecum Prime” gives the car enthusiast a hugely entertaining peek behind the curtain of Mecum Collector Car auctions: the cars, the characters, and the auction block chaos. NBC Sports and Mecum Auctions will produce an
episode of “Mecum Prime” at every Mecum Auction – 12 total in 2014 on NBCSN.
The first episode of “Mecum Prime” will feature the best moments of the Kissimmee Car Auction, the largest collector car auction in the world. The Kissimmee Auction featured more than 3,000 classic and collector vehicles. You can view the trailer of “Mecum Prime” at the link provided: innovativei.com/mecum/
"We love Mecum Auctions, and we think MECUM PRIME will introduce them to an even bigger audience," says Jon Miller, President of Programming at NBC Sports. "By combining these classic cars with the irrepressible characters on the Mecum auction block, auto fans will get two shows for the price of one: a great car show, and an exciting, character-based transaction show."
Nobody sells more than Mecum. Nobody. The Mecum Auction Company is the world leader of collector car and Road Art sales hosting auctions throughout the United States. The company has been specializing in the sale of collector cars for 26 years, now offering more than 15,000 vehicles per year and averaging more than one auction each month.
