NEW DISCOVERY SERIES "DEVIL'S CANYON" FOLLOWS LONE GOLD MINERS DEEP INTO THE BUSH IN SEARCH OF MASSIVE GOLD
'DEVIL'S CANYON' Premieres Tuesday, June 6 at 10 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel
(LOS ANGELES) - Deep in the bush of British Columbia there is a new gold rush happening in area known as Devil's Canyon. Hundreds of millions of dollars in gold are waiting for anyone who is willing to risk their life to get it. On Tuesday, June 6 at 10 PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel will premiere DEVIL'S CANYON, an all-new series that follows three men as they venture deep into the bush, alone, on a quest to unearth a massive fortune.
Extreme prospectors Boyce Goff, Ben van der Valk and John Belchik travel separately into the areas of Devil's Canyon that are far beyond the reach of big mining companies, in search of the next big pay streak. No roads, no trails, no camera crew, no help. They must pack in everything they need to mine and survive in the cruel wilderness of Devil's Canyon. Alone for weeks, and self-documenting their experiences, both men are caught in a tug-of-war between searching for gold and doing whatever it takes to survive.
With the threat of winter quickly approaching, Ben and Boyce must decide on how far they are willing to push themselves in this canyon that has claimed the lives of thousands of men before them. It's man vs. nature in one of the harshest environments on Earth, all for the chance to steal the Devil's gold.
DEVIL'S CANYON is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment in association with AMS Pictures, where Jason Fox, Matt Ostrom, and Laura Johnson are Executive Producers. For Discovery Channel, John Slaughter is Executive Producer and Katlyn Higgins is Associate Producer.
