"Treasure Quest: Snake Island" is a reality series on Discovery Channel.

Hidden somewhere off the south eastern coast of Brazil, could lie hundreds of millions of dollars-worth of lost Incan gold. For 400 years, many have searched, fought and died looking for this elusive bounty. But all have failed to hold onto it. This series takes viewers along an epic journey with an elite team of treasure hunters who have a new theory on where the treasure lies: a remote spot home to 1,000s of deadly vipers.

In 1524, a horde of Incan gold — known as the "Treasure of the Trinity" — was stolen. For 500 years, Jesuits priests, privateers such as Thomas Cavendish and mathematician Paul Thiry have all searched the coast of Brazil for this legendary bounty, but in all that time, no one has cracked the code as to where the treasure might have been hidden ... until now.

Discovery Channel will follow the adventures of these real-life treasure seekers who set out for two months in search of this priceless booty.

The team will stop at nothing — scaling peaks through the jungle, exploring treacherous caves and diving among the galleons that sunk to the ocean floor centuries ago. Treasure hunting is nearly impossible and the team will face dangers both on land and at sea. It's a place where modern-day pirates still exist and word has gotten around that they are looking for treasure.

But they're going to need more than pure brawn on this quest. The team will need to solve complex mathematical clues and puzzles protecting the treasure — the same ones that have thwarted countless others before them. But most of all, they'll need nerves of steel as they brave one of the most deadly places in the world — where one careless step could not just cost everyone incredible riches, but ultimately their lives.

"Treasure Quest: Snake Island" is produced for Discovery Channel by MAK Pictures. For MAK Pictures, executive producers are Mark Kadin and Will Ehbrecht. For Discovery Channel, executive producer is Joseph Boyle with associate producer Sara Van Acker.
