A&E ORDERS 20-EPISODE SECOND SEASON OF THE NEW HIT SERIES "STORAGE WARS"

SERIES AVERAGING 2.3 MILLION VIEWERS IN ITS FIRST SEASON

PASADENA, CA, JANUARY 7, 2011 - A&E Network has picked up a second season of the original hit real life series "Storage Wars." Production on 20 episodes for season two of the series is currently underway, which are slated to premiere in second quarter 2011. The announcement was made today by Bob DeBitetto, President and General Manager of A&E and BIO Channel.

Season one to date; "Storage Wars" has averaged 2.3 million total viewers. The December 1, 2010 series premiere become A&E's most-watched nonfiction series premiere of the year and has continued to grow week after week.

New episodes of "Storage Wars" premiere every Wednesday night on A&E.

"Storage Wars" follows fast-talking auctioneers Dan and Laura Dotson and the group of loyal bidders that frequent their storage unit sales. As the bidders get a quick peek inside the units, aided only by the beam of a flashlight, they have mere minutes to decide if they're going to take the gamble. "Storage addict" and 32-year bidding veteran Darrell and his son Brandon Sheets, second hand store owner Jarrod Schultz, entrepreneur Dave Hester and antique collector Barry Weiss return for more high stakes fun as they all try to out-bid one another in the pursuit of storage treasure.

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