From a media release:
Get Rich or Die Buyin’! OLN Greenlights New Original Series Storage Wars Canada
It’s time for Canada to go bid or go home as the popular Storage Wars franchise arrives north of the border. OLN, Proper Television, and FremantleMedia today announced that Storage Wars Canada (36 x 30 minutes) has been greenlit with production slated to begin May 2013, and filming to take place in locations across Ontario. Additional production and broadcast details to be announced at a later date.
Commissioned by OLN’s original content team and produced by Proper Television, Storage Wars Canada is a modern-day treasure hunt, as four professional buyers use their knowledge, expertise, and wit to bid on the contents of abandoned, repossessed, and forgotten storage containers. With only a matter of minutes to scan the contents of the locker using only the beam of a flashlight, the high stakes fun begins when the buyers have to out-bid each other for the locker, which could be full of trash…or treasure.
