TOP HIGHLIGHTS

GOLD RUSH

Returns Friday, October 13 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery

The gold miners of Discovery's #1-rated show are back. And this year, the rivalry among the miners has reached new levels. But will they be able to put their money where their mouth is? Before the new mining season even kicks off, gold miner Todd Hoffman lays everything on the line and wagers a massive bet with 22-year-old Parker Schnabel. The ever-confident Todd believes he can pull in the most gold this season. If not, he owes Parker 100 ounces of gold worth over $100,000 dollars. This sets off a head-to-head competition for the season between these two rivals. At 8 PM ET/PT, just before the official GOLD RUSH season premiere, Discovery will broadcast an all-new live event featuring the mine bosses hashing it out and fielding real-time audience phone calls and Facebook questions

THE BUSH LEAGUE (W/T)

All-new series premieres this fall on Discovery

Across the country, the bushcraft movement is growing. It is built on primitive wisdom, ingenuity, hard-won wilderness skills and a desire for self-reliance. But who are the best at their craft? THE BUSH LEAGUE (w/t), an all-new competition series, will see a group of wild artisans set out to prove who is the ultimate master. Born out of primitive skills gatherings happening all over the USA, the art of bushcrafting was once handed down from person to person. But today it's on a much larger scale with the power of social media allowing bushcrafters to challenge each other to more and more elaborate builds. Now legendary Bush Master Matt Graham is leading the charge on a whole new level of competition and hosting an elite series of bushcraft summits deep in the wilds of Matt's home state of Utah. In these summits, two master bushcrafters will compete head to head in a bushcraft build-off themed to a specific environment, topography and primitive living challenge.

HOT GREASE

All-new Discovery Impact film premieres this fall on Discovery

HOT GREASE hits the streets of Houston, Texas, the energy capital of the world, telling the surprising story of how an environmentally beneficial industry has been built around an ostensibly worthless raw material - spent kitchen grease. With Congress considering elevating renewable fuel standards to unprecedented levels, potentially yielding billions in profits for the industry's evangelists, the film is a real-life illustration of the challenges in trying to achieve the American Dream on the expanding green energy frontier - and the rewards that come with triumph. With insights from the innovators, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, and grease collectors, HOT GREASE follows the start of an industry as people are trying to carve out their piece of this modern-day "gold rush." Directed by Sam Wainwright Douglas, Paul Lovelace, and Jessica Wolfson.

KILLING FIELDS ISLE OF WIGHT (W/T)

All-new series premieres this fall on Discovery

Across America, there are isolated places that appear untouched. In these desolate and sprawling areas -- known as killing fields -- dozens of deaths remain mysteries. This fall, Discovery will travel to the farmlands of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, a small town located near the Chesapeake Bay. But this seemingly idyllic community reveals a dark past when the sheriff's office re-opens a brutal homicide case and discovers more than anticipated.

CASH CAB

Returns this fall on Discovery

In a city with over 13,000 taxis, there's only one New Yorkers should keep their eyes peeled for... the CASH CAB! The Emmy(R) winning series will return to Discovery in 2017, with a new spin, as unsuspecting passengers will be ambushed by America's favorite celebrities! Revived and revved up, with Ben Bailey in the driver's seat, unwitting passengers enter the Cash Cab expecting a normal taxi journey, only to discover they're instant contestants in for a potentially lucrative ride. Dodging New York City traffic, these lucky passengers will take on classic CASH CAB trivia en route to their destination. If they get stumped, pedestrians and friends can help them out via phone, text or social media shout outs. If these riders get three questions wrong, though, they're out on the street. All new episodes will feature some of the top names in comedy, film and TV... who will even get behind the wheel of the cab itself, picking up lucky passengers.

FAST N' LOUD

Returns this fall on Discovery

An all-new season of Fast N' Loud returns as motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and his crew search the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. Usually showcasing the local customs and characters while they're out on road trips. But will their blood, sweat and beers translate into cold hard cash?
