HISTORY'S "THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND" REACHES SERIES HIGH 3.1 MILLION VIEWERS IN SEASON TWO FINALE

Unscripted Series is Cable's Top Program for Night

NEW YORK, NY - January 15, 2015 - The season two finale of HISTORY's unscripted series THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND (#OakIsland) reached a series high 3.1 million Total Viewers Tuesday evening, making it the number one program on cable for the night in total viewers, as well as Men 25-54 (863,000), according to Nielsen Research. The program, which follows two brothers who employ new technology, recorded history and old-fashioned know-how to attempt to discover one of the greatest treasures ever, also reached a season best 1.4 million viewers among Adults 25-54, placing it as Tuesday night's top original/non-fiction program in the demo.

In season two of THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND, brothers Rick and Marty Lagina came closer than anyone before them to solving this 200-year-old mystery. Located in the North Atlantic, Oak Island is believed by many to be hiding one of the greatest treasures in history. Since the late 1700s, fortunes have been spent and lives have been lost, but no one has ever been able to crack the code to get at the prize. A local legend says that seven people actively involved in the search must die before the treasure is found. So far, six have perished in accidents across the years. In this season, Rick and Marty upped the stakes after they found a 17th century Spanish coin at the end of season one. This time around, the brothers and their partners brought in experts and researchers from around the world to learn even more about the island's incredible history. They also used that research to find the location of the original Oak Island Money Pit, where they found evidence of what is believed to be an ancient treasure vault. Using scanning sonar, they also verified the existence of mysterious man-made objects and tunnels located at the bottom of a 235 foot shaft, objects that 92 year-old treasure hunter, Dan Blankenship claims he discovered more than forty years ago.

THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND is produced for HISTORY by Prometheus Entertainment. Kevin Burns serves as executive producer for Prometheus. Matt Ginsburg, Mike Stiller and Elaine Frontain Bryant are executive producers for HISTORY.
