(Los Angeles) – Miner Dave Turin returns for an epic and emotional journey in an all-new season of GOLD RUSH: DAVE TURIN’S LOST MINE premiering Friday, March 19 on discovery+ and Discovery Channel. After pandemic travel restrictions make Dave’s plans of mining in Alaska impossible, Team Turin finally sets up their operation in Colorado. Armed with an all-new state-of-the-art wash plant, they begin work on a lost mine with massive gold potential. With gold prices reaching all-time highs, Dave’s dream of achieving financial security and total freedom seems just in reach until tragedy strikes the gold claim.

With the Rocky Mountain summer heat on their backs, Team Turin’s detective work leads them to legendary ‘main channel’ gold the Colorado oldtimers missed. They quickly face local resistance and the toughest ground they’ve ever mined, so the crew must dig deeper than ever before. Then, by looking to the lessons from local history, they soon begin to strike big hauls of gold. But the success turns bittersweet when gold room operator Jesse Goins suddenly passes away. Devastated at the loss of their mining brother, the team take time out to mourn. But Team Turin won’t be denied, and they return to work, on a mission to dedicate the season to Jesse and his share of the gold to his family. And after Dave makes a game-changing pivot, the crew pushes on towards a record-breaking season.

This season of GOLD RUSH: DAVE TURIN’S LOST MINE, Dave and his team will summon ingenuity, willpower, and creativity to tackle the challenge of mining in an unfamiliar location. In a time of uncertainty, Dave and team will have to risk it all to come away with a life-changing haul.

All New Season of “Naked and Afraid” Launches March 7 on Discovery and discovery+





All New Season of “Naked and Afraid” Launches March 7 on Discovery and discovery+
This season sees survivalists who would rather take on some of the world’s most dangerous environments than stay “safer at home.”
[via press release from Discovery Channel]
YOU WOULD’VE BEEN SAFER AT HOME! AN ALL NEW SEASON OF “NAKED AND AFRAID” PREMIERES MARCH 7 ON DISCOVERY AND DISCOVERY+

While the world has gone into extended lockdown, adventure-seekers from across the world are taking on a true survival challenge where everything that is familiar – home, clothes, and ease of everyday life – is completely stripped away. From the bug-infested rainforests of Ecuador and the frigid peaks of the Colorado Rockies, to the apex predator hunting grounds of Namibia and the scorching desert of the US/Mexico border, this season of NAKED AND AFRAID sees survivalists who would rather take on some of the world’s most dangerous environments than stay “safer at home.”

In each location, these survivalists must endure hostile climates, lurking predators, and a scarce food and water supply while undergoing the ultimate test of human endurance and willpower unlike anything they’ve experienced before. They come with nothing and give it everything — and do it all while completely naked.

An all-new season of NAKED AND AFRAID premieres Sunday, March 7 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery and streams concurrently on discovery+. the definitive non-fiction, real-life subscription streaming service. In addition to watching the series on discovery+, viewers can join the conversation on social media with #NakedAndAfraid, and follow Discovery on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok for more updates. You can also follow discovery+ on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

During a time that has tested us all, NAKED AND AFRAID pushed survivalists like never before. This season, survivalists must overcome obstacles such as having to endure Africa’s smallest but most aggressive predators imbedding themselves in survivalists’ most private parts, a rainforest environment so difficult one survivalist re-evaluates his life and future with the girlfriend he has waiting back at home, and a generation-gap challenge that puts the stereotypes of millennials and old-school survivalists to the test.

In addition to being tested in extreme environments, including having to take on rugged terrain at 8,000 feet in the San Juan mountains and the saturating humidity of the Ecuadorian cloud forest, these survivalists must also endure each other and the challenges they are forced to take on together in order to survive. If the relentless bugs, plunging nighttime temperatures, blistering heat and creeping self-doubt won’t do them in, will their partners?

NAKED AND AFRAID is produced for Discovery and discovery+ by Renegade 83, an eOne company; David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, and Mathilde Bittner are executive producers. Rachel Maguire is Co-Executive Producer. For Discovery, Michael Gara is executive producer and Greg Wolf is coordinating producer.

This two-hour special is executive produced and narrated by acclaimed television journalist Soledad O’Brien as she reports on the nuances behind this case and follows a family as they searched for justice.
[via press release from Discovery, Inc.]
A MURDER IGNORED, AND A FAMILY LOOKING FOR ANSWERS. UNCOVER THE TRUTH IN WHO KILLED MY SON?

-The Two-Hour True Crime Special Will be Available to Stream Exclusively on discovery+ Starting March 23rd –

(Silver Spring, Md.) – In 2014 Pravin Varughese, an Indian American student at Southern Illinois University, went to a house party in Carbondale, IL. He was never seen alive again. It took five days to discover his body, but the push to find out how Pravin’s life truly ended lasted years. Rumors abounded that the 19-year-old’s death was his own doing, and accusations of drugs, alcohol and foul play inundated the case. But Pravin’s mother, Lovely Varughese, knew her son, and she felt certain there was more to the story than the authorities let on. Fighting what she believed to be prejudice, deception, and a flawed legal system at every turn, Lovely refused to give up on the memory of Pravin. Witness the lengths the Varughese family went through to prove that their only son was not the cause of his own death, and that the truth is worth fighting for. This two-hour special is executive produced and narrated by acclaimed television journalist Soledad O’Brien as she reports on the nuances behind this case and follows a family as they searched for justice. WHO KILLED MY SON? streams exclusively on discovery+ beginning March 23rd.

“The mystery behind this young man’s death is just too much for any mother to bear. When the criminal justice system failed to get answers, she began an epic fight for justice, marshalling a community of supporters to hold officials accountable. What they discovered was nothing less than shocking,” says executive producer Soledad O’Brien.

“We are proud to bring this incredibly moving story of perseverance to discovery+,” says Lisa Holme, Group SVP Content and Commercial Strategy for discovery+. “Lovely Varguhese’s advocacy for her son took years of working against racism and prejudice, and hopefully by sharing her story, other families will not have to endure the same fight.”

This discovery+ original follows the challenges the Varughese family faced as they fought for an investigation into their son’s disappearance. From pushing local authorities for a transparent investigation, to consistently facing what she believed is systemic racism because of the color of their skin, this Indian American family exhausted all avenues to find out what really happened to their son. Now Lovely Varughese comes forward to share her story, joined by her family’s advocate and interviews with law enforcement, friends and those connected to the case. Through poignant, emotional and jarring interviews, this special probes for answers to the question: was Pravin murdered, or was it an accident as law enforcement initially believed? And should someone be put behind bars for his untimely death?

WHO KILLED MY SON? is produced for discovery+ by Texas Crew Productions and SO’B Productions. Executive Producers for Texas Crew are David Karabinas and Brad Bernstein, and Executive Producers for SO’B are Soledad O’Brien and Jo Honig. For discovery+, Dianna Sperrazza is Executive Producer.

DISCOVERY+ ACQUIRES SUNDANCE DOC “REBEL HEARTS”

Documentary by Pedro Kos follows a group of revolutionary, patriarchy-defying nuns in 1960s Los Angeles

NEW YORK, NY (March 3, 2021) – discovery+, the definitive non-fiction, real-life subscription streaming service, announced today the acquisition of the feature documentary film, REBEL HEARTS, which premiered to glowing reviews at Sundance. Directed by Emmy(R) award winning filmmaker Pedro Kos, and a co-production between Merman and Anchor Entertainment in association with Level Forward and Quiet, the film tells the immersive story of a trailblazing group of nuns who bravely stood up to the patriarchy of the Catholic Church.

discovery+ continues to ramp up their original documentary slate with projects from the best storytellers. REBEL HEARTS joins a diverse slate of documentaries including FRANCESCO, MY BEAUTIFUL STUTTER, and MIRACLE FISHING: KIDNAPPED ABROAD, launching on the service this year.

In 1960s Los Angeles, The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary fought for equality, their livelihoods, and their own freedom against an all-powerful Cardinal who sought to keep them in their place. Their bold acts of faith, defiance and activism turned the church upside down, helping to reshape our society in ways that continue to resonate today. Kos combines incredible archival footage, stunning animation and two decades of never-before-seen interviews gathered by the film’s producer Shawnee Isaac-Smith to beautifully illustrate the story of these incredible women.

Director Pedro Kos says “We are beyond thrilled to be partnering with discovery+ to bring the forgotten story of the joyous rebellion of the Immaculate Heart Sisters to a global audience. Even though REBEL HEARTS is mostly set in the 1960s we have always felt this David versus Goliath story will very much resonate today. We’re excited for the world to meet these inspiring women and experience the awakening where they found their voices and became unlikely vanguards of change.”

“REBEL HEARTS truly stood out for us at this year’s jam-packed Sundance Film Festival. From the first frame to the last, Pedro Kos’ stylish approach grips the audiences with masterful storytelling highlighting the forward-thinking voices from the Immaculate Heart Sisters. These women are true game changers, challenging the status quo around patriarchy, gender politics and social justice while always working towards bettering themselves and those around them. It is the perfect fit for discovery+ where we aspire to spotlight inspiring stories that promote diversity, inclusion and women’s empowerment,” states Igal Svet, VP of Documentaries, discovery+.

discovery+ will launch the film globally in 2021.

REBEL HEARTS is directed by Pedro Kos; produced by Kira Carstensen, Shawnee Isaac-Smith and Judy Korin; executive producers Ethan Goldman, Pedro Kos, Abigail E. Disney, Adrienne Becker, Christy Spitzer Thornton, Quiet, Meadow Fund; for Whitewater Films executive producers Nancy Stephens & Rick Rosenthal; for XTR executive producer Tony Hsieh and co-executive producers Roberto Grande, Bryn Mooser, Justin Lacob, Kathryn Everett, Mimi Pham; additional co-executive producers Nina Fialkow, Kristín Ólafsdóttir, Geralyn White Dreyfous, Lyn Davis Lear, Regina K. Scully and Emma Ho. The film is a Merman/Anchor Entertainment production in association with Level Forward and Quiet.

The deal was negotiated by Submarine’s Josh Braun and Matt Burke on behalf of the filmmakers.

Showcasing the vital work being done to protect our diverse wildlife and ecosystem is an important part of Discovery’s heritage and we are thrilled to share this latest addition to the vast collection of natural history documentaries available on discovery+,” said Scott Lewers, Executive Vice President of Multiplatform Programming, Factual & Head of Content, Science.

The Aleutian Islands are a rugged, wild network of 2,500+ islands which swing out into the middle of the Bering Sea. They are not only protected by remote isolation, but by their designation as an Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge.

“Watching swirling clouds of tiny seabirds at Kiska Island is one of the most awe-inspiring wildlife spectacles I have ever seen. The thousands of islands that are home to millions of birds and marine mammals make the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge an iconic example of our National Wildlife Refuge System,” said Cynthia Martinez, Chief of the National Wildlife Refuge System for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “I’m excited that viewers will get to experience the beauty of the Aleutian Chain, the traditional homelands of the Unangax̂ people.”

There is only one way to reach this remote corner of the world – a daring, high-seas adventure with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service on a one-of a kind research mission. Ian joins along with a team of leading scientists to document their findings, share their stories and learn first-hand why these islands are so vital to the health of the planet.

The Aleutians are comprised of 80 large volcanoes, one of the most volcanic places in the world. It’s the secret to the success of the wildlife that live here. The special will give viewers an up-close look at the millions of seabirds that swirl the Aleutians’ jagged cliffs. It also traces some of the largest congregations of marine mammals anywhere on the planet including pods of orca, humpback whales and northern fur seals that face off to protect their territory. This is truly a place where it’s survival of the fittest – with cameras capturing it all.

Ian and his crew were also the very first to film at the volatile active volcano (Bogoslof), home to one of the largest Northern Fur Seal colonies in the world. But there are more than just animals to the islands’ story. Ian also explores and captures the first high-definition footage of World War II relics left behind by the Japanese troops that invaded and occupied the Aleutians.

As a photographer, author, film and television producer, conservationist, and educator, Ian has captured some of the world’s most pristine environments and the vital message of conservation. In 2020, he launched the Discovery digital series “Nature in Focus,” where Ian explored the planet as host and executive producer. In 2019, Ian led several expeditions to some of the world’s most remote coral atolls for the giant-screen film, Hidden Pacific, which he directed and produced. Hidden Pacific brings to life in IMAX 3D the vibrant marine national monuments at the far reaches of the Pacific Ocean — thriving ecosystems filled with colorful coral reefs, large colonies of birds, and threatened species that depend on these habitats for survival. He is the author of several, best-selling books including the award-winning The National Parks: An American Legacy, and his latest best-selling book released in October 2020, Refuge: America’s Wildest Places, which celebrates the National Wildlife Refuge System.

CALLAHAN WALSH HEADLINES NEW “IN PURSUIT” SPIN-OFF WITH A SPECIAL HIGHLIGHTING MISSING PERSONS CASES

— IN PURSUIT: THE MISSING Debuts on discovery+ and ID; Special Airs in Advance of a New Season of IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH Coming Later This Year —

(New York, NY) – With the acute understanding of someone whose family has been through the unimaginable experience of losing a child, Callahan Walsh hosts an hour-long special spotlighting missing persons cases with IN PURSUIT: THE MISSING. As a spokesperson and child advocate for the National Center for the Missing & Exploited Children, Callahan brings his passion, empathy, and determination to actively investigate two mysterious disappearances, and provide an outlet to the families desperate for answers. The special also showcases missing children cases from around the country, each with a ticking clock, unanswered questions, and an urgent need to activate the public to come forward with tips or information that might help bring these missing persons home to their loved ones. IN PURSUIT: THE MISSING will stream on discovery+ beginning on Sunday, March 7, and will premiere on Investigation Discovery on Monday, March 8 at 9pm ET. IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH, which Callahan co-hosts alongside his legendary crime fighting and fugitive-catching father, John Walsh, returns later this year.

In the first featured story, Callahan travels to the picturesque town of Cape Coral, Florida to learn more about the disappearance of 29-year-old single mother, Lauren Dumolo, who was reported missing on June 19, 2020. In his quest to bring Lauren home, Callahan uncovers dark secrets and learns that certain people in Lauren’s life might not have had her best interest at heart. Then, Callahan travels across the state to Ft. Lauderdale and immerses himself in the 2017 missing persons case of then 15-year-old Sophie Reeder, who snuck out from her father’s home in the late evening hours on Friday, May 19. When his investigation takes a turn into the shadowy world of the dark web, Callahan takes a deeper dive into the epidemic of human trafficking, and uncovers clues that Sophie might have fallen in the hands of those who perhaps groomed and targeted her.

In both cases, few clues are left behind, leaving Callahan to conduct boots-on-the-ground investigations into these disappearances. Speaking with law enforcement and the victim’s family to understand the circumstances surrounding the fateful day they were last seen, Callahan works to reveal any leads or information that have been unearthed since they’ve been gone and asks viewers to call if they have information on the cases.

IN PURSUIT: THE MISSING also spotlights missing children cases from around the country, including: the July 10 disappearance of 10-year-old Breasia Terrell from Davenport, Iowa; the August 4 disappearance of 12-year-old Jaylen Griffin from Buffalo, New York; the May, 2019 disappearance of then-16-year-old John Riser from Washtoukna, Washington; and the 2015 disappearance of then 15-year-old Ava Baldwin from San Antonio, Texas, which includes an age-progression photo provided by NCMEC to help guide the public on what she might look like now that she’s 11.

Anyone with information in any of the featured cases is encouraged to text or call our hotline at 833-3-PURSUE, or submit tips online at InPursuitTips.com. All calls can remain confidential.
