"Unearthed" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on Discovery Channel.

Buried deep in the forests surrounding the small town of Falls City, Oregon is a fortune that only a few men know how to find. During the weeks leading up to the holiday rush, they are on the hunt for one of the most expensive delicacies in the world: black truffles. For the foragers of Oregon, truffles are actually more valuable than gold. This season, an historic drought hits Oregon and then winter comes early, bringing the truffle supply to an all-time low with prices predicted to hit an all-time high. With increased competition between the foragers and even more diggers seeking riches, the truffle men of Oregon will be pushed to their limits to survive.

The search for truffles is treacherous. From dangerous terrain to unpredictable weather to animal and human predators, every hunter must pull out all the stops to earn their living. They make their own rules and live for the thrill of scoring a huge hunt. But will this be the worst hunt yet?

This series follows the drama in the forest as the truffle foragers of Oregon battle each other for a decreasing number of productive truffle patches and put everything on the line in hopes of a big payoff. It's a risky business as they face the elements, animal predators and fellow hunters who are willing to set traps, sabotage patches and do whatever it takes to find the buried treasure.

"Unearthed" is produced for Discovery Channel by Zodiak NYC. For Zodiak NYC, executive poducers are Mike Gamson and Neil Regan. James Dugan serves as co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Joe Schneier serves as executive producer, and Max Micallef is Coordinating producer.
