Premiering on March 6 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, the 8 x 30-minute series will feature David Hasselhoff, Ice T and wife Coco, Lance Bass, Fran Drescher, David Cassidy, Debbie Gibson, the Simmons family, and Rick Harrison.

Items will potentially include Hasselhoff’s replica of KITT from Knight Rider and Gene Simmons Axe guitar from KISS.

The executive producers for Celebrity Home Raiders are DiGa Vision’s Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto; Leftfield Pictures’ Brent Montgomery, David George and Matthew J. Braley; Mary Donahue and Paul Hardy for Lifetime; and creator Lance Bass.
