A&E(R) PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL REAL-LIFE SERIES "STORAGE WARS"

FROM THE PRODUCERS OF "ICE ROAD TRUCKERS," 12-EPISODE HALF-HOUR SERIES FOLLOWS TEAMS OF BIDDERS LOOKING TO SCORE BIG IN THE HIGH-STAKES WORLD OF STORAGE AUCTIONS

PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY, NOVEMBER 8, 2010 - A&E presents the new original real-life series "Storage Wars," which follows four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure. Part gamblers, part detectives, these auction pros have found everything from coffins to the world's most valuable comic book collection, paying as little as ten dollars for items valued in the millions. The 12-episode half-hour series premieres on A&E, Wednesday, December 1 at 10PM ET/PT.

Each episode of "Storage Wars" follows a group of bidders as they get a quick peek inside the units, aided only by the beam of a flashlight. They then must assess on the spot if the unit is worth a bid and how high they will actually go to grasp the gold. The high-stakes fun begins as we see if the resulting buy is full of mostly trash... or true treasure. Driven by Dan Dotson, one of the most successful and outrageous auctioneers in the country, the cast of buyers is as colorful and varied as the treasures they uncover.

It's "get rich or die buyin'" in season one of "Storage Wars" as our wily auction heroes try to outfox one another in the pursuit of storage treasure. Collector Barry Weiss finds everything from micro-cars to shrunken heads, proving you never know what's inside a storage unit. After buying a locker for $800, consignment mogul David Hester rakes in $40,000 profit for one day's work. "Storage addict" Darrell Sheets unearths a unit filled, literally, with gold and silver, while upstart Jarrod Schulz uses every trick in the book to keep his business afloat and his wife Brandi happy. It's a modern-day treasure hunt on the savage self-storage battleground.

"Storage Wars" is produced by Original Productions ("Ice Road Truckers" and "Deadliest Catch") for A&E Network. Executive producers are Thom Beers and Philip Segal. Jeff Conroy and Dolph Scott are co-executive producers. A&E executive producers are Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant.
