Who says reality television has to be boring? A&E has hit a home-run with their show Storage Wars which features an eclectic blend of personalities who bid on abandoned storage units. The show about modern day treasure hunting has already branched off from California to Texas and it looks like the network is looking to expand the show yet again.
Starcasm is reporting that the show will branch off into the cities of New York and Miami. According to the site, Barry Weiss (from the original series) confirmed the news to a Florida newspaper. Interestingly, it looks like Weiss may be getting a spin-off of his own as well!
Weiss is a fan favorite on the show and is best known for his crazy antics. Some of his stunts include taking psychics to “see” what the lockers hold and flying a remote controlled camera helicopter into the units, which ultimately crashed. However, the spin-off featuring Weiss may be different than Storage Wars.
It is set to be called What Are You Worth? and would feature families that are in need of some extra cash. It is unclear what role Weiss would play and details are scarce, but it looks as though casting has started. Barry Weiss is a likeable personality and is fans are sure to watch the new show, but will his popularity be enough to carry his own show?
Obviously, fans are excited to see Storage Wars branching off into new cities where new treasures are sure to be found. Are you more excited for the new cities or for Barry’s own show?
