"Dangerous Grounds" (TV show) is a reality series on Travel Channel that features coffee magnate and adventurer Todd Carmichael as he traverses the globe, zip-lines on a makeshift cable thousands of feet in the air, and dodges machine gun-toting adversaries all on the hunt for rare strains of coffee beans in some of the most fascinating and unseen places in the world. Why? With nearly a billion people drinking coffee every day, coffee has become the second most-traded commodity behind oil, and most importantly to Carmichael, his livelihood depends on the success of finding the perfect hidden coffee bean!

Viewers will follow Carmichael as he travels to remote locales including Haiti, Bolivia, Madagascar and Borneo — while showcasing sites and cultures that few have even seen, let alone visited. These are places where things can get out of control at the blink of an eye. Whether sleeping under his truck to avoid being detected by dangerous robbers or using makeshift repairs to fix a broken engine, Carmichael risks it all in search of the ultimate coffee beans. Travel is his life, and coffee fuels his passion for adventure.

In the premiere episode of "Dangerous Grounds," Carmichael travels to a poverty-stricken Haiti still devastated by the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. The country, despairing and dangerous, is home to what was once one of the most savored coffees in the world. After averting a brewing riot in the marketplace, Carmichael travels deep into the mountains where he navigates treacherous roads, dodges dangerous armed middlemen and finds an ancient bean hidden in the deepest area of the elevated terrain.

"Dangerous Grounds" is produced by Nancy Glass Productions for Travel Channel. For Nancy Glass Productions, the executive producers are Nancy Glass and Brian Lovett. The executive producer for Travel Channel is Bill Howard.
