Canadian specialty network OLN will launch two unscripted series in July– one focused on strange competitions, and the other on the inner workings of one of Vancouver’s largest liquidation stores.

Get Stuffed, produced by WorldWide Bag Media, is a 13 x 30-minute series following the adventures of Erin Simms, Josh Rice, Ryan “6 Pack” Lapadat and Kalyn Miles as they compete in such bizarre contests as ostrich races in Arizona and greased pig racing in Quebec.

In addition to the physical challenges, the competitors must also partake in a food side-bet, in which losers must eat cuisine ranging from a pig’s ear sandwich to a plate called the “quadruple bypass burger.”

The series (pictured) launches on July 3 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

Get Stuffed is executive produced by Anna Wallner, Kristina Matisic and Heather Hawthorn-Doyle. Claire Freeland is director of original programming for Rogers Broadcasting and Marni Goldman is production executive for Rogers original programming.

OLN’s other new program launch is a 13 x 30-minute series starring Jeff Schwarz, owner of one of the biggest liquidation houses in Vancouver.

The Liquidator premieres on July 5 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, and goes inside the world of buying and selling. It’s executive produced by Margaret Mardirossian (X-Weighted) and Helen Schmidt (X-Weighted), while series producer is Candice Tipton (X-Weighted). Producers are Keely Booth and Blake Maddox for Anaid Productions.
