NEW YORK, NY — JUNE 12, 2013 –A&E Network is breaking the locks off the tri-state area’s abandoned storage units with the season premiere of its latest hit series “Storage Wars: New York.” The East Coast treasure hunters are back for an action packed new season, and the drama that brews in the Big Apple is almost good enough to eat! Back-to-back new episodes of “Storage Wars: New York” premiere Tuesday, July 9 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT.
“Storage Wars: New York” ranks as A&E’s number one new nonfiction series of the year among adults 25-54. During its January run, the series averaged 2.9 million total viewers, with 1.5 million adults aged 25-54 and 1.2 million adults aged 18-49.
“Storage Wars: New York” follows a group of urban explorers in a modern-day treasure hunt for forgotten gems. In the nation’s most populated city, with its notoriously small apartments and storage dilemmas, there’s no telling what amazing valuables might exist within the storage units of New York and its surrounding areas. Joe P (“The Legend”), Mike (“The Hustler”), Candy and Courtney (“The Flame and The Firecracker”), Chris and Tad (“The Loud Mouth and “The Conscience”) and auctioneer John Luke are back, along with larger than life newcomer Big Steve. It is a constant battle to find and own the lost and precious items of the city, and when New Yorkers are bidding, a whole different attitude comes to the auction!
In the season premiere episode at 9PM, the buyers head to Trenton, New Jersey and Chris and Tad find a crate of fireworks that makes them wonder if they’ve found the best bang for their buck. Joe P finds out whether an antique hearing aid whispers the sweet sound of success or leaves him empty handed. At 9:30PM, the bidders venture out to Harlem, New York and Mike explores his feminine side with the purchase of a woman’s locker.
“Storage Wars: New York” is produced by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company for A&E Network. Executive producers are Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, Jeff Conroy and Dolph Scott. A&E executive producers are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Fred Grinstein.
