DISCOVERY CHANNEL TO PREMIERE FIRST "GOLD RUSH" MULTI-PLATFORM SERIES "GOLD RUSH: DAVE TURIN'S LOST MINE"
(Los Angeles) - Two years ago, Dave Turin left the mining world, setting out on new ventures, but now, the fan-favorite from Discovery Channel's #1 rated series GOLD RUSH is making his return to the network in a brand-new GOLD RUSH spinoff and Discovery's first GOLD RUSH multi-platform series, GOLD RUSH: DAVE TURIN'S LOST MINE. Discovery Channel will premiere seven brand-new mid-form episodes Friday, March 8 on the Discovery GO platform that will lead to the series' broadcast premiere on Friday, April 5 at 10PM ET/PT.
"Dave Turin cemented himself as a fan favorite as viewers witnessed his successes, failures, persistence and now, a whole new chapter," said Scott Lewers, EVP of Multi-Platform Live Event Programming and Network Strategy, Discovery & Science. "This digital-first series invites everyone to join him on his latest adventure and thrilling pursuit for gold."
Dave Turin spent years working alongside Todd Hoffman and earned the nickname "Dozer Dave" after spending countless hours bulldozing in the quest for gold. After his departure from GOLD RUSH, people around the country started reaching out to Dave, asking for his help resurrecting their failing mines. Now, Dave is planning a spectacular return to gold mining, as he searches for a lost and abandoned mine to resurrect, and chase the gold the old-timers left behind. Using his expertise, and the backing of financiers, Dave is on a mission to become his own mine boss and make his fortune in GOLD RUSH: DAVE TURIN'S LOST MINE.
As Discovery Channel's first GOLD RUSH multi-platform series, seven all-new mid-form episodes will follow Dave's search for the one abandoned mine that he's willing to risk everything for and will air exclusively on the Discovery GO platform, which is free to viewers with their cable subscription. Dave will explore the history of each mine and prospect the land to figure out which mine could see him win big. The search will culminate with Dave picking the one abandoned mine he can turn into newfound riches.
DAVE TURIN'S LOST MINE is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw TV, with Mike Griffiths and Sam Maynard as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Matt Vafiadis and Christina Bavetta serve as executive producers with Jessica Mollo serving as associate producer.
