"Klondike" (TV miniseries) on Discovery Channel, based on Charlotte Gray's novel "Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike," brings to life the tale about six strangers and their collective fight for survival and wealth in a small, frontier town in the remote Klondike.

Starring Academy Award winner Chris Cooper, the miniseries follows the lives of two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein, in the late 1890s as they undertake the next, gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory. This man-versus-nature tale places our heroes in a land full of undiscovered wealth, but ravaged by harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters including greedy businessmen, seductive courtesans and native tribes witnessing the destruction of their people and land by opportunistic entrepreneurs.

"Klondike" is a co-production between Discovery, Entertainment One Television (eOne) and Nomadic Pictures in association with Scott Free Television. Paul Scheuring ("Prison Break," "A Man Apart") is the primary writer and serves as executive producer, along with Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker; as well as John Morayniss and Michael Rosenberg for eOne; Mike Frislev and Chad Oakes serves as co-producers for Nomadic. Josh Goldin & Rachel Abramowitz are also writing episodes as consulting producers. Eileen O'Neill and Dolores Gavin serve as executive producers for Discovery.

The miniseries is produced with assistance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Film Development Program. International distribution is handled by eOne Television.
