A Winter Park family will be featured in the premiere episode of A&E’s “What’s It Worth?” hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy.

On the show, which debuts Aug. 4, a team of experts and authenticators appraise various antiques and collectibles that families have had in their households for years.

Winter Park resident Dane Koller and his 12-year-old son Kamron hope to find out if their Donkey Kong arcade machine is worth big bucks during the premiere.

Dane had posted his classic Donkey Kong arcade machine on Facebook Marketplace for $2,000. After sinking $1,100 into it, he was looking to make a return on his investment. Then the show contacted him, asking if he would like to appear with his game.

He said the filming experience, which took place about three weeks ago at their home, was great.

“They were wonderful, and they sent us equipment, the cameras. They shipped everything to us.,” Dane said. “We went through several takes and a couple weeks of back and forth, emails, videos, things like that.”

Both the father and son have acted and modeled, so filming wasn’t new to the pair, but the method was.

“It was kind of neat seeing how they did everything through Skype,” said Dane, who noted that viewers should tune in to the show for a surprise.

“There’s something that’s gonna be pretty exciting about something I did for Jeff that he didn’ have any clue about,” Dane said.

Catch new episodes of “What’s It Worth” at 9 p.m. Tuesdays on A&E.
