A modern-day treasure hunt based on the smash-hit Storage Wars franchise, Storage Wars Canada cuts its inaugural lock Thursday, Aug. 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) on OLN. The half-hour homegrown reality series follows six professional bidders who use their combined knowledge, expertise, and wit to bid on the contents of abandoned, repossessed, and forgotten storage containers. In each of the of the 36 uniquely Canadian episodes, watch as the auction-goers attempt to outbid each other â€“ uncovering everything from grand pianos and rare antiques, to sex toys and vintage riding crops.
The battle for the biggest payout heats up this August with the previously announced Storage Wars Canada cast, including: self-taught, veteran auctioneer Don Reinhart, no-nonsense buyer Roy Dirnbeck â€“ â€œThe Instigator,â€ fashionista Ursula Stolf â€“ â€œThe Knock-out,â€ long-time bidders Cindy Hayden and Rick Coffill â€“ â€œThe Veterans,â€ and father-and-son duo Paul and Bogart Kenny â€“ â€œHigh-roller and the Kid.â€
In the series premiere entitled â€œNorthern Lights. Northern Fights,â€ the buyers travel to Aurora, where they hope to uncover a wealth of treasures. Roy spots something unusual that may give him the upper hand, and Rick and Cindy find something that needs closer inspection. Father-and-son duo Paul and Bogart are played for suckers, and Ursula quickly learns â€œthere are no friends at auction.â€
In advance of the eagerly awaited series debut on August 29, Fan Expo 2013 attendees can be the first to watch the Storage Wars Canada world premiere at an exclusive sneak-peek screening on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the super fan event in Toronto. Held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the screening will be followed by a panel and autograph session with the cast. Additional details to be announced in the coming weeks.
