UKTV has commissioned two more ten-part series of Storage Hunters UK for its free to air entertainment channel, Dave.
Based on T Group’s original US hit, the show is one of Dave’s biggest audience pullers, with one episode drawing a consolidated audience of 2.5m. Dave also airs the US original version.
The first of the new runs will air this summer, with the third series airing later this year. Both will again feature legendary auctioneer Sean Kelly.
Catherine Catton, UKTV’s Senior Commissioning Editor, said, “North One, Sean Kelly and T-Group have worked hard with us to make Storage Hunters UK a stand-out success.
“I’m very much looking forward to working with the team on the next two series, we have the most exciting format along with some of the biggest characters who will do anything to win!”
Steve North, General Manager for Dave, added, “There was an element of risk in bringing a format that was so well-loved by the Dave audience to our shores.
“But injecting Dave’s personality into a format that blends jeopardy, tension and laugh-out-loud moments has resonated with our audience and I’m very pleased we are able to bring them more of what they love.”
