The locally made television reality-comedy series Flea Market Fanatics,” filmed at Rogers Community Auction and flea market, is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Hollywood Top Productions began filming the series, which focuses on the offbeat situations and people at the flea market, last summer.

The first-season episodes include guest appearances by former NFL great Larry Csonka, WQED-Pittsburgh film producer Rick Sebak, comedian Jess Faulstich, artist Gail Trunick, singer-songwriter Candace Campana, Chicken Boy Braydon Bowyer, Judeye the hula-hoop girl and others.

Hollywood Top Productions and Rogers Community Auction Inc. are co-producing the show.

Steve Kreider, owner of Hollywood Top Productions, is a Waterford, Pa., native, who retired from the Army in 2013 after serving 25 years.

Since then, Kreider worked as a producer on “Duck Dynasty,” and on the Army reality show “Starting Strong.” “We wanted to make an original show, and you can’t get more original than Rogers Flea Market,” said Kreider. “Our relationship with Amazon Prime Video gives us a great opportunity to have our work distributed across the globe.”

Director Steve Swanson said the show was fun to make. “We met many fascinating people who truly love the flea-market experience as much as we do,” said Swanson. “Those are the stories that you’ll find in the seven episodes of Season 1.”
