Delving into the fast-paced, high-stakes buy-and-sell world, OLN today announced that production has begun on original Canadian series The Liquidator.
The 13-part, 30-minute reality series follows haggler, trader and pawn shop owner Jeff Schwarz as he navigates the adrenaline-packed world of buying low and selling high.
Commissioned by OLN and produced by Anaid Productions (X-Weighted), The Liquidator is currently filming in Vancouver. The series will debut on OLN this summer. Additional broadcast details will be announced at a later date.
“Jeff Schwarz’s dicey and high-intensity life of wheeling and dealing is a perfect fit for OLN’s adrenaline-fuelled programming lineup,” said Claire Freeland, Director of Original programming, Rogers Media Broadcasting. “The series is wildly entertaining and filled with larger-than-life characters at every turn. We’ve seen buy-and-sell on television before, but never with the craftiness of a liquidator like Schwarz.”
When it comes to moving discarded merchandise, Schwarz has done it all. Setting his sights on the big-time deal, he’s trading up to become the “Liquidation King,” living out his mission of buying low, selling high, and keeping the merchandise moving. From getting the tip and checking out the goods, to making the deal and finding a buyer, viewers will see it all –and it isn’t always pretty.
The Liquidator is an OLN original series. Executive Producers are Margaret Mardirossian (X-Weighted) and Helen Schmidt (X-Weighted) for Anaid Productions. Claire Freeland is Director of Original Programming, Rogers Media Broadcasting and Marni Goldman is Production Executive for Rogers Original Programming.
OLN’s ongoing support of Canadian independent productions has been a major contributor to the success of series such as Mantracker, Survivorman, Departures, Beyond Survival, Word Travels, Ed’s Up, Angry Planet and Which Way To.
