Reality TV show “Salvage City” to feature St. Louis’ hidden treasures
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Reality TV is no stranger to St. Louis. Shows like “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” “Funeral Boss” and “Mom Friends Forever” are set in the Gateway to the West. Now, a show called “Salvage City” premieres on the Discovery Network in December. The show’s premise: Breaking into abandoned buildings and rescuing historic treasures to sell to collectors.
St. Louis native Sam Coffey and his salvage crew lead camera crews into a burlesque theater, abandoned hospitals, and sand mines. They will look high and low for anything of value left behind in forgotten corners of the city.
This show is another “Coolfire Original.” The local production company has made a splash on basic cable. You can watch their shows based in town on the OWN, NickMom, and the Discovery Channel.
