New Show Will Feature Branson Pawn Shop


Discovery Channel is putting a unique spin on pawn shop reality shows.  

A new program, “Pawn in the Game” — which should air sometime later this month — is filmed in Suddenlink-served Branson, Mo., and features Branson Pawn owner Scott Velvet and manager Brian Roman bartering with customers. The twist: When Scott and Brian reach a negotiations impasse, they give customers the opportunity to earn their asking price by answering trivia questions.

Scott and Brian recently spoke with The Branson Tri-Lakes News about the show.

Discovery Channel is available to all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.

      I did some digging and it looks like the name of the show was changed to “Game of Pawns.” Discovery debuted six episodes on Dec. 29, and then it seems to have fallen off the radar. I can’t find any sources confirming it has been cancelled, but it doesn’t appear on the Shows tab of the Discovery website. If I learn more, I’ll let you know.

        Thank you for your quick responce to my inquiry. I, also, went on the Discovery channels website and noted that the program was not listed in their line up. I only watched the show on 12/29/12, but i thoroughly enjoyed it and I have been researching it ever since. Please advice if you find out any additional information. Thanks again.
