OLN Announces Cast and Start of Production on Original Series, Storage Wars Canada
- One auctioneer and six bidders cast for first ever Canadian version of the hit Storage Wars franchise
- Start of production on 36, half-hour episodes now underway
After auditioning hundreds of bidders looking to score big, OLN today announced cast and production details for the highly anticipated original reality series Storage Wars Canada. With principal filming on the 36-episode, half-hour series now underway in Ontario, the cast features a seasoned auctioneer and six determined professional bidders, each with the same amount of motivation, but all with their own unique strategy. Commissioned by OLN’s original programming team, produced by Proper Television, and licensed by FremantleMedia, Storage Wars Canada is slated to premiere on OLN this summer. Full broadcast details to be announced at a later date.
Storage Wars Canada is a modern-day treasure hunt, as professional bidders use their combined knowledge, expertise, and wit to bid on the contents of abandoned, repossessed, and forgotten storage containers. Second-generation auctioneer Don Reinhart is joined by six fierce bidders, including: Roy Dirnbeck – “The Instigator”; Cindy Hayden and Rick Coffill – “The Veterans”; Ursula Stolf – “The Knock Out”; and father-and-son duo Paul and Bogart Kenny – “High Roller and The Kid.”
