A&E PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL REAL-LIFE SERIES "SHIPPING WARS"

10-EPISODE HALF-HOUR SERIES FOLLOWS TEAMS OF INDEPENDENT SHIPPERS BIDDING FOR THE CHANCE TO TRANSPORT THE UNSHIPPABLE

PREMIERES TUESDAY, JANUARY 10 AT 9PM AND 9:30PM ET/PT

New York, NY, December 1, 2011 - A&E presents the new original real-life series "Shipping Wars," which follows six independent shippers who have discovered that fortunes could be made transporting items that traditional carriers won't touch. The 10-episode half-hour series begins with back-to-back episodes Tuesday, January 10 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT.

Each episode of "Shipping Wars" dives into the cutthroat world of these heavy-duty movers as they battle for the chance to transport the unshippable. The competition begins with uShip, the world's largest online auction house for independent truckers. Every day, thousands of shipments are put up for auction. The battle is fierce as the movers have only minutes to bid, and the lowest bidder gets the load.

From oversized loads and bulky packages to the truly bizarre, these shippers will haul anything if the price is right. The high-stakes race is on as they set out to deliver the loads in time, and any setback can cost big bucks.

From rookie haulers to seasoned veterans, no shipment is too big for these professionals to handle. Marc Springer has been shipping less than a year but he clearly has a knack for the business. He always manages to keep his 18-wheel tractor trailer full, and looks for nothing but the biggest, "baddest" loads he can find. Rookie Jennifer Brennan may be new to the shipping world, but she's about as tough and competitive as they come. She began her career transporting farm animals across the country, but her typical shipments have expanded to be just about anything from a water buffalo to a million-dollar Ferrari. Jarrett Joyce has only been in the business for a few months, but he's never one to shy away from a unique load. He's shipped everything from kittens to a hot dog stand to a Civil War cannon. Know-it-all Roy Garber has two years of experience under his belt. A serious handyman, he's never found a load he couldn't tackle, and this determination has made him one of the top earners in the country. Veteran shippers Scott and Suzanne Bawcom may seem like your typical suburban couple, but they are anything but ordinary. A former bomb squad specialist, Scott spent his pre-shipping days diffusing bombs in Iraq for the Marines, and he's not the kind of guy to run away from a challenge. For the Bawcoms, shipping is a family business. While Scott hauls shipments across the country, Suzanne bids and books loads constantly.

"Shipping Wars" is produced by Megalomedia for A&E Network. Executive producer is Jonathan Nowzaradan. Co-executive producers are Tom Mireles, Jeff Keels and Graham Davidson. A&E executive producers are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Neil A. Cohen.
