VIDEO: Clips from Series Premiere of SyFy's DEALS FROM THE DARKSIDE
In case you missed the premiere of SyFy's new reality series DEALS FROM THE DARKSIDE, check out two clips from the episode below! The series airs Wednesdays on SyFy (10-10:30 & 10:30-11 p.m. ET).
Syfy delves into the the world of some of the creepiest and most notorious antiques and relics in existence in the new half-hour reality series, "Deals from the Darkside." The 13 episode reality series was acquired from CABLEready.
Jack the Ripper’s knife, an executioner’s sword, a Titanic deck chair and a piece of the Hindenberg are among the dark relics with which eccentric collector Steve Santini comes face to face in his quest to expand his extensive collection of twisted treasures – many of which are on loan to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, DC.
Follow along as Santini, his sidekick Robert “Biker Rob” Duguay and researcher Stef Proctor travel far and wide to call on experts to prove that the artifacts are (or aren’t) what they’re claimed to be. When Santini isn’t driving a hard bargain for the real deal relics, he engages in his other passion – escapology. Santini, who’s been dubbed the world’s most extreme escape artist by "Ripley’s Believe It or Not," works with dangerous materials such as machete blades, power drills and water chambers as he perfects his craft in this most unique of hobbies.
