HGTV's "If Walls Could Talk" is coming to Atmore and needs help from area residents on story ideas.
"If Walls Could Talk" is a weekly series on HGTV that airs on Sundays. The show is coming to the Atmore area to film different homes that have an interesting past and unusual stories.
"We are looking to be in the area in about the next month, the end of November or early December," said research/casting producer for HGTV/High Noon Entertainment Jason Mercado. "However, it depends on the response we receive. We are looking for three to five strong stories and if we can find them quickly, the sooner we'll come. If it takes a little longer, then we'll come a little later."
"If Walls Could Talk" is in its ninth season. The series begins with new homeowners that find little surprises in their homes as they explore and refurbish them. A few homeowners could find historic artifacts in their home that are worth a lot of money. When the "If Walls Could Talk" appraiser stops by their home, he or she can let the homeowner know just how much of a fortune their home has been holding.
The historical artifacts could range from old letters to pictures to art to books. Some toys and clothing could even have historic value.
The show is a half-hour long and it features homeowners from all over the United States that share their discoveries. The show began in 1998 and has aired more than 200 episodes. Each episode was filmed in different historic neighborhoods across the U.S. The show is produced for High Noon Entertainment.
Mercado said it is important that people who are interested in being on the show get in touch with him as soon as possible.
"We are very excited to come to the area," he said. "We are going to be in the area soon and are hoping to hear from homeowners by next week."
Homeowners who would like to be considered for "If Walls Could Talk," call Mercado at 303-712-3109 or email him at
