TWO AMERICAN ROOKIE GOLD MINERS PUT IT ALL ON THE LINE IN HOPES OF STRIKING IT RICH IN GHANA IN DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S ALL-NEW SERIES "JUNGLE GOLD"

New Series Set in the West African Jungles of Ghana Premieres October 26 at 10 PM ET/PT

Determined gold miners from around the world seek their fortunes in the dangerous and gold-rich jungles of Ghana, Africa's second largest gold producing country. JUNGLE GOLD premieres on Discovery Channel Friday Oct. 26 at 10 PM ET/PT, and follows Americans George Wright and Scott Lomu, two hard working men who risk it all to strike it rich as part of a golden plan to recover from losing everything in the real estate crash of 2008.

Former real estate high-rollers George and Scott regularly turned over million dollar deals. Their families reaped the rewards of their hard work as both men enjoyed the American dream. But after missing the warning signs of a real estate market about to crash and burn, both men lost everything. In desperate economic straits, Scott planned to move his family into his father's basement as George worked to postpone the foreclosure on his home. With their futures on the line, they make a bold decision to risk it all to mine for gold in the West African jungles of Ghana, a region with vast reserves of gold-rich ground that could ensure even these rookies with aging machinery can strike it rich.

With little money and everything on the line, they beg and borrow anything they can to succeed. After securing a $150,000 from an investor, the pressure is on from the very start to find gold to pay back this loan, as well as their other debts that exceed one million dollars. But mining for jungle gold is the easy part for George and Scott. Armed neighbors, miles of broken roads, roadblocks manned by Ghanaian gangs, and shady and ruthless gold buyers are among the daily hurdles they must face and overcome to succeed in their plan to safely escape Ghana with enough gold to secure their families' futures.

United by their will to survive and provide for their families, every moment is spent with passports in pocket in a dangerous world where one wrong move could result in a race to get out of the country alive. Against stacked odds, their stakes have never been higher.

JUNGLE GOLD is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw Television, where Dimitri Doganis and Sam Maynard are executive producers and Charlie Clay is show runner. Christo Doyle serves as executive producer for Discovery Channel with Meagan Davis.
