STV Studios wins Warner Bros Discovery commission

STV Studios announced it has secured a 40-episode commission from Warner Bros. Discovery UK & Ireland to produce a brand-new series of The Yorkshire Auction House, Celebrity Yorkshire Auction House, and spin-off version, The Derbyshire Auction House, for the Really channel.

The commission includes the fifth series of hit show The Yorkshire Auction House fronted by Angus Ashworth.

Across 23 new episodes, Ashworth will travel across the UK, clearing homes of treasures whilst discovering the stories behind the objects and the people who owned them.

STV Studios will also produce a fourth 7 x 60′ series of Celebrity Yorkshire Auction House, which will see Ashworth joined by famous faces to hunt through cupboards for forgotten heirlooms and auction their once-prized possessions.

Following the success of the original show, which was one of the channel’s most-watched programme of 2023, Really has also commissioned STV Studios to produce a brand new 10 x 60′ episode spin-off – The Derbyshire Auction House,” said STV.

“Coming to Really in July, the show features antiques dealer, Irita Marriott, one of the few women in the country to helm an auction house, as she builds her business in the heart of South Derbyshire.

“Rare medals, an unassuming yet expensive clock, and a huge collection of tractors go under Irita’s gavel as she helps her vendors make money from unwanted or inherited collections.”

Craig Hunter, Creative Director of Factual at STV Studios, said: “We’re thrilled to be back in production with a new series of The Yorkshire Auction House and the popular celebrity version.

“It’s a much-loved format that holds great appeal for the Really audience, so the introduction of The Derbyshire Auction House, with Irita at the helm, is an exciting development for us and one we hope viewers will appreciate with equal enthusiasm.”
