DISCOVERY CHANNEL TAKES VIEWERS TO THE AMAZON FOR AN EPIC QUEST OF EXPLORATION IN BRAND-NEW SERIES "CURSE OF AKAKOR" PREMIERING MAY 26

In the 1980's, three explorers set out to find the legendary cities of Akakor and Akahim in the Amazon jungle, but one by one, they disappeared. Now, guided by the legend of Akakor and equipped with the latest technology, an international team of investigators are following in the footsteps of those missing explorers. They're aiming to solve a dual mystery. First, do Akakor and Akahim exist? And second, what happened to those explorers who went missing? The new series, CURSE OF AKAKOR premieres Wednesday, May 26 at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery.

Led by Irish investigate journalist, Paul Connolly, the team will include American geologist and explorer Dr. Martin Pepper, Brazilian wilderness doctor Dr. Karina Oliani, former FBI Agent Bobby Chacon, British survival expert Megan Hine and tech expert Brennon Edwards. Their journey will begin in the dark jungles of Peru, east of the Andes, where Akakor is said to be located. From there, they'll trek to northern Brazil - the rumored site of Akahim, and the last known location of the missing explorers.

The deeper they go into the jungle, the stranger and darker the mystery becomes. In an effort to solve this mystery once and for all, their search leads them to come face to face with the only man who may have the answers - river guide, Tatunca Nara.

In addition to watching CURSE OF AKAKOR on Discovery, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #CurseofAkakor and following Discovery on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
