NEW YORK – October 14, 2021 – The holidays will be bigger, better and more entertaining than ever as Discovery’s portfolio of networks, led by Food Network, HGTV and OWN, launch the first-ever discovery+ Holiday Central hub on November 1st.

Additional titles include HGTV’s House Hunters: Ho Ho Home, White House Christmas 2021 and Holmes for the Holidays, OWN original movies A Chestnut Family Christmas, A Sisterly Christmas and A Christmas Stray, and for fans of Crime, Fruitcake Fraud.

“From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day we see dramatic spikes in viewership on a network like Food Network, so we’ve learned a lot about what audiences want and how they respond to shows that are fun, feel good, fulfill holiday viewing fantasies and bring families together,” said Kathleen Finch, Chief Lifestyle Brands Officer, Discovery Inc. “This year, if you love holiday programming, you won’t need to go anywhere else because, across our platforms, we’ll have everything from scripted, escapist holiday tales like Candy Coated Christmas or A Chestnut Family Christmas to an extreme tabletop and themed event competition series called Table Wars or an edge of your seat, true crime caper with a holiday twist called Fruitcake Fraud. Food Network, HGTV and OWN will have seasonal offerings, with some new titles as well as our mega library of classic holiday shows available to stream exclusively on the discovery+ Holiday Central Hub. Bring on the holidays — we’re ready.”

The holidays have always been celebrated by the linear networks, while this year’s Holiday Central seasonal content hub will create the ultimate holiday destination for viewers. On digital and social, new content every day in November and December across the Lifestyle brands, from Food Network’s annual Twelve Days of Cookies and recipes from appetizers to dessert and every holiday meal in between, it’s a one-stop seasonal celebration for fans.

“discovery+ will be the streaming home for the holidays, with exclusive discovery+ originals and seasonal content from our beloved networks in our brand new Holiday Central hub on the app,” said Lisa Holme, Group SVP of Content and Commercial Strategy, Discovery, Inc. “Just as we were home to major cultural events like Shark Week, the Olympics in Europe and Ghostober, discovery+ will once again serve as the ultimate destination for the next seasonal streaming event.”

Beginning November 1st, crafting is hotter than ever as the country’s best makers compete to create stunning and functional pieces. Crafting enthusiast Chrissy Metz joins judges Leann Rimes and Mark Montano to determine who will win the title of Maker Champion in the discovery+ exclusive Meet Your Makers Showdown. Holiday movies are a timeless tradition for viewers of all ages to enjoy and this year’s lineup features new and classic favorites perfect for getting into the holiday spirit. Candy Coated Christmas launches Friday, November 19th exclusively on discovery+, and stars Molly McCook (Last Man Standing) as Molly Gallant, a Beverly Hills marketing executive whose carefully planned life takes an unexpected turn when she takes a business trip to the picturesque town of Peppermint Hollow. The movie also stars Aaron O’Connell (The Haves and The Have Nots), John McCook (The Bold and the Beautiful), Lee Garlington (Broken), Jae Suh Park (The Big Short), newcomer Landry Townsend, Lonzo Liggins, Dia Frampton, and Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman). Whether you are a fan or not, fruitcake usually invokes cheery images of Christmastime gatherings. But Corsicana, Texas – the town where the best, most scrumptious fruitcakes come from – was definitely not a happy place when it was discovered someone had embezzled a whopping $17 million from the acclaimed Collin Street Bakery. How the crime was solved – and the lavish lifestyle the culprits were living on the ill-begotten proceeds – has people in Corsicana and plenty of others, including the FBI, still scratching their heads in amazement. Welcome to Fruitcake Fraud, premiering December 1st exclusively on discovery+. Additional exclusives available only on discovery+ will include Candy Coated Christmas: Behind the Scenes with Ree Drummond on Monday, November 1st and The Pioneer Woman’s Hometown Holidays (WT).

Food Network’s seasonal offerings entertain and inspire, from fan-favorite baking competitions to soon to be new favorites that stretch the imagination as confectionery artists and culinary craftsmen whip up magical creations. Titles include Holiday Baking Championship which returns Monday, November 1st with tough-love judges, Duff Goldman, Nancy Fuller, and Carla Hall and host Jesse Palmer, searching for the ultimate holiday baker. Then, on Sunday, November 7th, Holiday Wars is back with the biggest and tastiest season yet, as teams of masterful cake and sugar artists join the battle under the watchful eye of host Maneet Chauhan and judges Shinmin Li and Aarti Sequeira. It wouldn’t be the holidays without a Christmas-cookie swap and on Thursday, November 11th, Eddie Jackson and Ree Drummond return as the perfect hosts for the annually anticipated Christmas Cookie Challenge. Cinnamon, spice and everything nice fills the air this time of year, as does the alluring fragrance of gingerbread, with the brand-new series, Holiday Baking Championship: Gingerbread Showdown, which shines a light on gingerbread-obsessed artisans and their extraordinary edible creations, premiering Monday, November 15th. Then, it’s the ultimate face-off, as two titans of baking, Buddy Valastro and Duff Goldman, take on the holidays as only they can, with bigger, bolder cake builds that embody iconic holiday moments and defy gravity in Buddy vs. Duff: Holiday, premiering Sunday, November 28th.

HGTV has the perfect new holiday series and specials to make the season bright. A special holiday episode of Table Wars, premiering Friday, November 19th, features host Tamera Mowry-Housley, alongside fellow judges Martha Stewart and Chris Hessney who evaluate stunning winter wonderland tablescapes. Also on Friday, November 19th, My Lottery Dream Home: David’s Holiday Extravaganza premieres with host David Bromstad celebrating the holidays in a BIG way in his new Florida home. In House Hunters Ho Ho Home premiering on Monday, November 29th, real estate agent, world-famous strongman and well-known Santa impersonator, Albie Mushaney, is on a mission to spread holiday cheer by helping clients find their forever home in time for the holidays. Fixer to Fabulous Holiday Surprise, available to stream on Tuesday, December 7th, will follow Dave and Jenny Marrs as they gift the Bella Vista Animal Shelter near their hometown in Bentonville, Arkansas, with a very special renovation to get them ready for the busy Christmas pet adoption season. The popular annual special White House Christmas 2021 returns on Sunday, December 12th as HGTV cameras go behind the scenes at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to showcase the magical holiday transformation and give fans a glimpse of the spectacular trees, breathtaking decor, gingerbread creations and much more. Next, in Holmes For The Holidays on Saturday, December 18th, contractor Mike Holmes, his daughter, Sherry Holmes, and son, Michael Holmes, Jr., battle it out in a friendly family Christmas competition to see who can create the most over-the-top light displays, ice sculptures and gingerbread houses. And, in Home Town: Ben’s Holiday Workshop on Sunday, December 19th, master woodworker Ben Napier will welcome father-daughter duo Captain Sig and Mandy Hansen from Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch — as well as dancer and TV personality Stephen “tWitch” Boss and his wife, Allison Holker Boss, host of Design Star: Next Gen — to his workshop to make special wood creations just in time for Christmas.

Plus, from OWN on Tuesday, November 16th new series The Big Holiday Food Fight makes its debut, with home cooks showcasing their treasured family recipes in a bid to win this fierce competition, all for the chance to see who rules the ultimate holiday table and walks away with a stocking stuffed with $5,000 cash! Additionally, three sensational movies from OWN, each with a unique twist, including, A Chestnut Family Christmas, premiering on Tuesday, November 30th, featuring Meagan Holder (UnREAL),as a talented pastry chef who, while working as a live-in cook and maid, accidentally commits to hosting her family for the holidays. To impress them she poses as the wealthy homeowner, until things go awry, and secrets are exposed in this heart-felt tale with the lesson that success is not defined by material possessions or status, but who you surround yourself with. On Tuesday, December 7th it is the premiere of A Sisterly Christmas, a tale of two sisters, one who loves Christmas, and the other who does not. An early inheritance at Christmastime takes them on a once-in-a-lifetime luxury holiday vacation, but Christmas proves to be more than they bargained for when they run into their childhood rival, now a snobby socialite, who digs in on these sisters, testing their resolve as women and their bonds of sisterhood. Then, on Tuesday, December 14th, in A Christmas Stray, a tightly wound corporate executive, played by Andra Fuller (LA Complex), finds himself hopelessly stranded in a small mountain town on Christmas Eve, unable to shake the adorable stray dog who ran him off the road, and irresistibly drawn to the free-spirited, local veterinarian played by Rhyon Nicole Brown (Empire), who is sorely in need of some Christmas magic herself.

With all this and much more, the new discovery+ Holiday Central hub celebrates the best of what the season has to offer.

BOOM TIME FOR MOONSHINE! ALL-NEW SEASONS OF “MOONSHINERS” and “MASTER DISTILLER” RETURN OCTOBER 27 ON DISCOVERY AND DISCOVERY+

BBQ Competition Series “MOONSHINERS: SMOKE RING” Also Coming to Discovery Oct. 27

(October 6, 2021 – NEW YORK) — Following a challenging year of lockdowns, restrictions and skyrocketing demand for liquor, the backwoods economy of moonshine is booming like it’s the roaring twenties all over again. Business has never been better and there’s never been a higher demand for booze, but boom time for moonshine comes with a lot more risk… and a lot more law enforcement.

With the return of everyone’s favorite outlaw ‘shiners and America’s favorite and only spirits-making competition show all on the same night, Wednesday nights are about to get a lot more… spirited! An all-new season of MOONSHINERS premieres Wednesday, October 27 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery and streams on discovery+, followed by all-new episodes of the ultimate booze-making competition series MASTER DISTILLER at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery. Fans can also follow the conversation on social media #Moonshiners and #MasterDistiller, and follow Moonshiners Facebook and Twitter for more updates.

And to round out the night, fans can also catch up on episodes of MOONSHINERS: SMOKE RING at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery. The series follows legendary Moonshiner, Tickle, as he ventures into the deep South in search of the best pit masters from around the country to compete in a high stakes battle to determine whose heritage and skills produce the best tasting BBQ. It’s man, meat and fire in its truest form — who will walk away King or Queen or the Smoke Ring? All three series are produced by Magilla Entertainment.

This season on MOONSHINERS, Tickle, Tim Smith, Josh Owens , Mark Ramsey, Eric (Digger) Manes and the rest of the gang are back as the backwoods economy that drives their beloved way of life is thriving. But law enforcement is back on their game, forcing shiners to cross state lines to practice their craft and elude capture. After their stash house was raided by police last winter, Mike Cockrell and Jerry Benson build the courage to return to the scene of the crime, but will they be ready to start a new backwoods operation across state lines? Forced to flee Tennessee after a police raid, Mark and Digger will soon discover the challenges of making good Tennessee Whiskey in a different state. Meanwhile, Tickle expands his partnership with Josh Owens and outlaw shiners Henry and Kenny Law, assembling a new mega still-site operation in Virginia, while new Louisiana moonshiner, Richard Landry, discovers a hot New Orleans market for outlaw absinthe.

While the economic shutdown may be in the rearview… so is the law! But as only backwoods ‘shiners will know – boom times are for moonshine!

This season on MASTER DISTILLER, the best-of-the-best legal and outlaw ‘shiners from across the country are back and ready to compete in the thrilling distilling competition that’s boozier than ever. Three competitors, three judges, and one winning spirit — they’ll distill everything from applejack (the first American spirit) to medicinal liquors in the tradition of Jagermeister and Campari. The competitors will go toe-to-toe in challenges such as Scotch vs American vs Japanese whiskey, which pits three regional whiskeys against each other, as well as a lost family recipe showdown where they’ll bring their best backwoods family recipes to the competition. Hosted by moonshining legends Mark, Digger, Tim, and Tickle along with guest judges at the top of their field, each episode will determine who has what it takes to be called Master Distiller. Let the battle of the booze begin!

MOONSHINERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment. Executive producers for Magilla Entertainment are Matthew Ostrom, Laura Palumbo Johnson, Jason Fox and Chris Tetens with David Jacobs serving as co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, executive producer is Bill Howard and associate producer is Paola Espinosa.

“Bering Sea Gold” Is All-In – Brand-New Season Suits Up a Deal No Miner Can Pass Up





“Bering Sea Gold” Is All-In – Brand-New Season Suits Up a Deal No Miner Can Pass Up
The all-new season premieres Tuesday, October 26 at 8:00/7:00c on Discovery and streams on discovery+.
[via press release from Discovery Channel]
IS IT LUCK OR IS IT SKILL?

“BERING SEA GOLD” IS ALL-IN

BRAND-NEW SEASON SUITS UP A DEAL NO MINER CAN PASS UP.

WILL THE FLEET GAMBLE & MAKE A DEAL, OR FOLD?

Bering Sea Gold Premieres October 26 on Discovery and streams on discovery+

(Los Angeles, CA) – The cards have been dealt, and now, for the fearless miners of Nome, it’s time to go all-in. Relentless snowstorms and hypothermic temperatures, new crew members and shifting power dynamics along with weather-induced equipment malfunctions leave the miners dealing with more than they bargained for this ice mining season. But with the price of gold remaining high, folding is not an option. This winter, the miners who dared to take a seat at the table will learn their fate, grinding through the brutal winter to see if they’ve got a winning hand… or whether the biggest gambles of their careers leave them in the muck. An all-new season of BERING SEA GOLD premieres Tuesday, October 26, at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery and streams on discovery+.

Nome, Alaska has one trick up its sleeve: bombarding the gold grounds with blizzards that are dumping more snow onto the ice than miners have ever seen. With these brutal conditions hitting every few days, mining shacks and gear are getting snowed-in, forcing the miners to dig out and haul their equipment as fast as they can for any opportunity to mine before the next blizzard hits. One thing’s a given this season: these miners are ready to up the ante no matter what comes between them and the potential payoff of a lifetime.

Shawn Pomrenke returns with his eyes on the prize, diving into the frigid unknown, fighting windchills of 50 below, alongside diver Joe Fullwood. With a problematic air compressor, Shawn faces challenges right out of the gate. But his intuition for gold rarely leaves him empty handed, and he’s chasing a golden jackpot he believes lies in an ancient river bed. Yet everyone knows that winter’s cruel dealings level the playing field for all miners and even Mr. Gold himself is not safe from the fury.

Mastermind Zeke Tenhoff, whose last ice mining season caused him to pack his bags, is coming in fresh and determined with a new crew, consisting of his other brother Gabe, friend Shlomo, and Gabe’s mischievous canine, Stormy. And what kind of ice mining season would it be if Steve Riedel didn’t make an appearance? He’ll lend a hand to Zeke in any way he can, even if that means serving as the pizza delivery guy. As he runs into stingy waters, Zeke will have to persuade Shawn to grant him access to the Tomcod. Will this business relationship prove profitable or disastrous?

Kris Kelly has more weighing on him than ever before — both on the ice and off. While trying to make this season his most successful yet, he’s gone in over his head on expensive new mining equipment and is also preparing for fatherhood. The soon-to-be dad must learn how to balance his high-stakes mining season along with caring for a newborn. Is he ready for the biggest journey of his life, or will the pressure cause him to fold?

This season’s wild card Vernon Adkison is on a hot streak on his coveted Claim 56, but he must contend with a lead in the ice threatening his entire operation. On some of the best gold of his life, Vernon pushes the crew and equipment to keep mining, as they move closer and closer to the open water at the edge of the ice. Will lady luck continue to bless Vernon or betray him when he least expects it?

With every miner seated at the table and placing their most audacious bets, only time will tell whether Nome will call their bluffs or give them a chance to score the ultimate payoff.

In addition to watching the series on Discovery, viewers can stream past seasons of BERING SEA GOLD on discovery+. Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #BeringSeaGold, as well as follow Bering Sea Gold on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.

THE RANEYS ARE BACK WITH BIGGER CHALLENGES AND LOCATIONS





BACK TO WORK!
THE RANEYS ARE BACK WITH BIGGER CHALLENGES AND LOCATIONS
IN AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF ‘HOMESTEAD RESCUE’
PREMIERING OCTOBER 17 ON DISCOVERY
It’s time to get back to work! The Raney family is once again traveling across the country to save families and their beloved homesteads from the brink of failure. From a simple solar power fix to allow a family to sleep soundly indoors again, to building location-specific greenhouses and gardens to supply food year-round, the Raneys are gearing up for big builds, life changing rescues and some serious lessons in homesteading 101 in an all-new season of HOMESTEAD RESCUE, premiering October 17.

HOMESTEAD RESCUE premieres Sunday, October 17 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery. Follow the conversation on social media with #HomesteadRescue, and follow Homestead Rescue on Facebook, Twitter, and the Discovery Instagram for more updates.

This season, expert survivalist and craftsman, Marty Raney, alongside daughter Misty and son Matt, face epic challenges and inhospitable wilderness like they’ve never faced before. They’re traveling to the most remote and dangerous parts of the country to rescue failing homesteads and save these novice homesteaders from total demise. Against all odds, the Raneys must utilize natural resources, endure the elements and work to set these families up for long term success.

Whether it’s literally draining a swamp in Georgia, growing food out of toxic soil in Texas, or protecting a mountain homestead from falling boulders in Montana, no homestead is too far gone and no task too big for the Raneys to help these desperate homesteaders realize their dream of self-sufficiency.

HOMESTEAD RESCUE is produced for Discovery by All3Media America and RAW. For All3Media America, Rebekah Fry, Tim Eagan and Peta Peterson serve as Executive Producers. For Discovery, John Slaughter serves as Executive Producer, and Jessica Mollo serves as Coordinating Producer.

Todd Hoffman Returns to Discovery Determined to Hit the Motherlode





Todd Hoffman Returns to Discovery Determined to Hit the Motherlode in All-New Series “Hoffman Family Gold” (W/T)
The all-new series is set to debut early 2022 on Discovery and streaming on discovery+.
[via press release from Discovery Channel]
TODD HOFFMAN RETURNS TO DISCOVERY DETERMINED TO HIT THE MOTHERLODE IN ALL-NEW SERIES “HOFFMAN FAMILY GOLD” (W/T)

(LOS ANGELES) – Fans of Discovery’s #1-rated show GOLD RUSH have watched miner Todd Hoffman bet it all with the hope to strike it rich in gold. Never afraid of a gamble, Todd has set up his mining operations in Alaska, Oregon, Colorado and Guyana, South America. He’s had some success and a fair share of struggles over the years. Now, Todd has been given an opportunity too good to pass up so he’s heading back to Alaska. Will he strike it big? Or walk away penniless? HOFFMAN FAMILY GOLD (w/t), an all-new series, is set to debut early 2022 on Discovery and streaming on discovery+. The series is produced by Lionsgate’s Pilgrim Media Group.

After ending a checkered mining season in Colorado in 2018, Todd is ready to get back in the game. He’s emptying his life savings with the hope to turn around a distressed mine located nearly 100 miles north of Nome, Alaska. An old mining partner has invested in the nearly 2,500 acres of rugged land. However, after years of greenhorn crews, busted equipment and little to no results, they’re about to go belly up. Todd’s taking a big gamble that he can turn around the operation and produce enough gold to get the mine out of the red. If he pulls it off, Todd will secure the mining rights for the next decade and could build a family legacy. But can he do it in just six weeks before the winter season sets in?

Over the years, Todd has built a mining career guided by a strong belief in God and the American dream. In order to make his dream a reality, he’s bringing in his closest family and friends. Joining Todd in Alaska will be his father Jack and his son Hunter along with a veteran crew of gold miners. For Todd, it’s more than just finding gold – this could be Todd’s last chance to set up his family for generations to come and share the wealth with his friends who’ve stuck by his side over the years. This is Todd’s time to prove he has what it takes to hit the ultimate motherlode. There is no room for failure.

Leading up to HOFFMAN FAMILY GOLD (w/t) is an all-new season of GOLD RUSH, premiering Friday, September 24 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery and streaming on discovery+. With the price of gold holding near record highs, each miner is battling to find and mine the best ground. There’s a ground war in the inhospitable wilderness of the Klondike. But one thing is certain, once gold fever strikes, these crews will never give up.

Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #GoldRush and follow Discovery on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.

HOFFMAN FAMILY GOLD (w/t) is produced for Discovery Channel by Lionsgate’s Pilgrim Media Group. Craig Piligian and Mike Nichols are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Michael Gara is executive producer and Greg Wolf is coordinating producer.
