Operation Hidden Treasures: New Series Premieres on Discovery Channel and American Heroes Channel October 2021
Hard-working Military Veterans find, recycle, and transform junk into treasures in this feel-good reality TV series
BERWYN, Pa. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - June 01, 2021 - Operation Hidden Treasures follows enterprising U.S. Military Veterans and their families whose mission is to salvage and repurpose otherwise unused items and turn them in to ‘hidden treasures’ for people in need.
Returned from active duty, a large group of Veterans discovered that their skillsets can be put to use helping families in need, while providing a service that most people don’t want to do – getting rid of never-used stuff in their homes and apartments. JDog Junk Removal & Hauling is a franchised operation wholly owned and operated by Veterans and their families who haul away people’s unwanted ‘junk’ and then work to find new homes for items such as furniture, musical instruments, clothing, toys, games, and even remodeling leftovers.
It’s American Pickers meets Storage Wars, but with a new twist!
Giving back to people in need is part of Military tradition. In every episode, we witness JDog’s quest to recycle or repurpose as much as 80% of the objects that their teams pick up from each job - with unexpected items embarking on a new journey to benefit a family or person in need. “It’s like going on a treasure hunt!” notes a longtime JDogger.
- Donated tables, lamps, and bedframes provide a fully furnished apartment for a single mother and her daughter.
- A husband and wife offer their no-longer-used pool table to a Veteran’s center.
- Helping a family that once owned a renowned local toy store by clearing out decades’ worth of STUFF, including rare dolls, games, and collectibles.
- Through JDog, a 12-year-old boy donates all his old clothes, toys, and games to a charity that finds homes for all of it.
- Repurposing lumber, used appliances, and other building materials for a local Habitat for Humanity.
- An abandoned boat gets a new life when it is given to a Veteran and her son who loves to fish.
Currently, there are more than 200 local JDog Junk Removal & Hauling franchisees across the country. As part of the series, we’ll witness the fascinating process that JDog founders Jerry and Tracy Flanagan employ to bring on a new franchisee - including their no-holds-barred JDog Boot Camp that teaches new franchisees everything they need to know to join the JDog ranks as a trusted, benevolent partner in their local community.
Every episode will also include a “JDog Auction” of an intriguing item discovered during a cleanout and made available to bid on by the public via the JDog website. Profits from every auction are donated to the JDog Foundation, which helps fund PTSD and education resources for Veterans and their families.
The series is overseen by award-winning Hollywood producer Jim Milio. Patriotic lifestyle retailer Grunt Style is the primary sponsor of the series. Operation Hidden Treasures is a co-production of JDog Media, LLC and Alliance Cinema.
There have only been a few unscripted TV shows featuring America’s Veterans. Operation Hidden Treasures is a television series that showcases Veterans who are serving their country once again, this time in their own backyards.
