AZCentral: Alaska has a reality show about ice truckers trying to survive deadly hauls. New York has Donald Trump’s cutthroat competition to be his apprentice. And Georgia has Billy the Exterminator, who battles rodents and alligators.
Soon, Phoenix will be the setting for a new reality show about one of the region’s most competitive and heart-racing activities – bidding on foreclosure homes.
Agents who work at Maricopa County’s foreclosure auctions are in negotiations to appear on the show, which is planned to start airing on the Discovery Channel next year.
New York-based Sharp Entertainment, producer of the show, also created “Punkin Chunkin” for the Discovery Channel, “Man vs. Food” for the Travel Channel and “Extreme Couponing” for TLC.
Now, cameras will be filming outside the county courthouse in downtown Phoenix.
