Canadian Pickers picked by History

Local junkyard scavenger series starts production in Nova Scotia this week.

After making American Pickers a hit south of the border on History, Cineflex Productions has sold Canwest Global’s History Television the format to make a local junkyard scavenger series Canadian Pickers.

Canadian hosts Sheldon Smithens and Scott Cozens will take the crew of the hour-long, 13-episode reality series through Nova Scotia this week, and then countrywide, to discover hidden treasure from collectors and hoarders to sell for hard cash. The show is expected to premiere in spring 2011.

A Canwest spokesperson has confirmed that the network is open to brand integrations on this production.

The US series has drawn impressive numbers airing on History Television.
