Suddenly SeeMore….Productions Announces “Pawnathon Canada” Renewed by History Television for Extended Second Season


Toronto, Canada  – December 02, 2011 – Suddenly SeeMore… Productions is pleased to announce that History Television has renewed Pawnathon Canada for a second season. History Television has increased the number of episodes of the one-hour series from four to eight for Season two.

Pawnathon Canada is a multi-day event that gives the public an amazing opportunity to showcase their personal histories through everyday objects. The show offers the public the opportunity to get a free session with appraisers who are experts on everything prized and treasured, such as jewelry, antiques and collectibles. The good stuff is sent to the Pawn Masters who are standing by with cash in hand. Extraordinary items, based on history, mystery and value, are offered the chance to be included in a bidding war where the Pawn Masters go head-to-head in a battle to outbid each other. Pawnathon Canada is set to air on History Television in the summer of 2012.

Morgan Elliott, President of Suddenly SeeMore… Productions will once again produce the series in association with History Television. Jonathan Dueck is returning as show-runner. Pre-production begins in November with filming to take place in Toronto in March 2012.


“We are thrilled that Pawnathon Canada is returning for a second season on History Television,” said Morgan Elliott, President Suddenly SeeMore… Productions. “As soon as the first episodes aired, people started contacting us wanting to know when the next event was taking place; so we anticipate even more amazing items this time with great stories, like last season’s blueprints from the iconic Canadian Avro Arrow, a sword from a soldier that fought for Canada in the Boer War, a 200 year old pine armoire from Quebec, Bruce Springsteen’s harmonica, and a pile of rare antiquities. We are primed to deliver an incredibly exciting second season.”
