TORONTO (December 13, 2012) Introducing viewers to a roster of fresh, outrageous, and diverse characters, OLN adds new series Duck Dynasty, Duck Commander, and Toy Hunter, along with original series Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan, to a lineup of envelope-pushing, spine-tingling, and cringe-worthy programming this mid-season. Kicking off the season with some familiar “faces,” Whisker Wars returns to OLN starting January 8, followed by fan-favourites including Baggage Battles, Ghost Hunters, and Operation Repo.
From Lord of the Rings to Wild Things, internationally renowned actor Dominic Monaghan (Lost) takes viewers on an exhilarating search for some of the most frightening and fascinating creatures on the planet in the new, original series Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan. Then, new series Toy Hunter plays right into viewers’ TV screens, as collectibles and toy expert Jordan Hembrough scours the U.S. searching for hidden treasures to buy and sell around the world. From digging through thousands of toy stashes, to poking through cramped attics and dirty garages, Hembrough is looking to turn people’s old trash into cold cash.
The Robertson family shares its true rags to riches story in the new series Duck Dynasty. Once poverty-stricken and surviving on the limited means of their homegrown operation selling duck calls, the family business has grown into a multi-million dollar sporting empire. Watch the trials, tribulations, and hilarious day-to-day events of this southern redneck family as they run Duck Commander. Viewers can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the business on new series Duck Commander. Making its Canadian network premiere, the series offers viewers an exclusive look into the family-run operation, home, and life on the road as the family stakes its claim as the world's greatest duck hunters.
Viewers can catch outrageous new episodes of Whisker Wars Season 2, Operation Repo Season 5, part 2, Ghost Hunters Season 8, part 2, and Baggage Battles Season 2.
