(Los Angeles, California--August 6, 2014) When "Storage Wars" main cast member Barry Weiss found a "Revenge Of The Jedi" jacket in a locker, he took it to Mark and Matt Harris for an appraisal. The identical twin Harris brothers, who are experts in Hollywood memorabilia, grabbed America's attention and became regular cast members of "Storage Wars" themselves. In short time, they have turned into famous pop culture icons.
Many unusual and fascinating things are found in storage lockers – but Mark and Matt Harris know there are many unusual and fascinating things in the world itself. In their new television series, The Harris Brothers’s World Of Wow!
the twins will take viewers on all kinds of journeys searching for the wow factor
– in other words, people, places and things that will simply make you say, “Wow!”
The show airs on the FirstRun.tv Network (http://www.FirstRun.tv
In the debut episode of The World of Wow!

episode where Mark and Matt appeared for the first time. My reaction was, who are those guys? They sure are funny and charismatic.
