OLN WEEKNIGHTS GO FULL THROTTLE WITH KING OF CARS, PREMIERING DEC. 12

- Gear up for the Canadian broadcast premiere of season one –

(Toronto – November 24, 2011) – OLN is supercharging its prime-time lineup with nightly, back-to-back episodes of the 13-part reality series King of Cars. Premiering Monday, Dec. 12 at 8pm ET/PT, each 30-minute episode offers a raucous, behind-the-scenes look at the fast-talking world of car sales. King of Cars follows Chop, the ‘King of Cars’ himself and the brains behind a Las Vegas automotive empire. The top of his shop, Chop is also a father, rap impresario, radio host, Vegas player and TV infomercial star.

Kicking off with the Canadian broadcast premiere on December 12, season one of King of Cars airs weeknights at 8pm ET/PT and 8:30pm ET/PT for six straight weeks on OLN.

In the premiere episodeWe Dooz it Large,” Chop pushes his sales crew to sell 40 cars on a single Saturday. Throughout the challenge, he keeps his eye on two particular staffers: Ali, a relatively green salesman who wants to prove his worth to Chop; and Barry, the ‘class clown’ of the dealership who desperately needs a sale to get out of his slump.

King of Cars also gives viewers an all-access pass behind the scenes of the Chopper Show, which features one-of-a-kind infomercials with a local cult following that include hilarious skits with real salesmen and Chop delivering his unique brand of high-energy hosting. With 80 per cent of sales generated from these weekly improvised infomercials, Chop’s automotive dynasty is the No. 1 used car dealership in the United States.
