DESCRIPTION: (from A&E's press release, February 2014) America's favorite treasure hunters are back in action and ready to up the ante on the auction and trading business. Season five of A&E's hit original series "Storage Wars" premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, March 18 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT immediately followed by the premiere of the new limited original series "Barry'd Treasure," featuring the incomparable and beloved Barry Weiss, at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT. "Barry'd Treasure" follows the exploits of Barry Weiss, the eccentric "collector" America fell in love with on "Storage Wars." Now retired from the storage auction game, each week he'll embark on a cross-country journey unearthing some of the nation's rarest and most fascinating collectibles. Riding shotgun in Barry's enviable assortment of automobiles is his motley crew of sidekicks who aid his efforts to haggle with the toughest, and sometimes oddest, collectors in America. But Mr. Weiss has an insatiable thirst for misadventure and often strays from his intended treasure route. Whether it's co-piloting a buggy in Amish country or taking a ride on a camel in Appalachia, ultimately for Barry, nothing's more valuable than a good time.
