‘LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD’ Premieres Sunday, October 31 at 8 PM ET/PT on Science Channel





A REAL-LIFE CURSED CITY? SCIENCE CHANNEL FOLLOWS A TEAM OF EXPLORERS IN SEARCH OF A MYSTERIOUS LOST CITY

‘LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD’ Premieres Sunday, October 31 at 8 PM ET/PT on Science Channel

(LOS ANGELES) – In a world where everyone posts photos and captures footage on their iPhones, it seems that there are no secrets. But have we really seen everything that exists on our planet? And have some places remained a mystery for a reason? LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD, premiering Sunday, October 31 at 8 PM ET/PT on Science Channel, will take viewers along on the journey to find a settlement whose existence explorers and scholars have long debated.

World-renowned explorer Steve Elkins and a team of archaeologists, anthropologists, scientists and filmmakers embark upon a true-life adventure where they must overcome torrential rains, dense jungles, poisonous reptiles and deadly disease carrying flies to search one of the last unexplored places on Earth known as “Ciudad Blanca” or The Lost City of the Monkey God.

For centuries, adventurers and treasure hunters have searched for the rumored Honduran city said to be built of a beautiful white marble-like stone. Stories are legendary of the treasure trove said to be built deep within the lush rainforest with impenetrable high mountains, deep rivers and obstacles guarding it. It’s a dangerous journey, taking many lives along the way, earning it a reputation with locals that the city is cursed.

Elkins and his team are going in deep and using the latest cutting-edge technology and science to help locate the city once and for all. However, they’ll need more than just high tech to accomplish their mission. The team must build trust with locals, government officials, drug cartels and the military in order to make inroads. But can Elkins and his team locate this fabled place of treasure and riches in time to properly excavate artifacts and preserve the area from the ravages of time

Science Channel Goes Underwater and Underground in New Premieres of “Underground Marvels”





Science Channel Goes Underwater and Underground in New Premieres of “Underground Marvels” and “Abandoned: Expedition Shipwreck”
Look for both series back-to-back beginning Thursday, August 5 at 9:00/8:00c.
[via press release from Science Channel]
Science Channel Goes Underwater and Underground in New Premieres of ‘Underground Marvels’ and ‘Abandoned: Expedition Shipwreck’

Both Series Premiere Thursday, August 5 on Science Channel

Hidden below the Earth’s surface are some of the most innovative, ground-breaking creations known to man that seem to defy the impossible. Hidden below the ocean’s surface lie a plethora of shipwrecks full of rich history, secrets, and stories from our past. In two new Science Channel premieres, UNDERGROUND MARVELS and ABANDONED: EXPEDITION SHIPWRECK, Science Channel goes underwater and underground exploring the greatest mysteries and marvels on Earth to reveal forgotten history and offering a glimpse into our future.

An all new season of UNDERGROUND MARVELS premieres Thursday, August 5 at 9pm ET/PT on Science Channel, followed by the series premiere of ABANDONED: EXPEDITION SHIPWRECK at 10pm ET/PT. Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using #UndergroundMarvels, #ExpeditionShipwreck, and following @ScienceChannel on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok.

Throughout this season of UNDERGROUND MARVELS, historians, engineers, and experts reveal underground structures that seem to defy human imagination, from Southwest England to Moldova and beyond. In South Dakota, a decommissioned military bunker lies abandoned 200-feet below the ground. Now, 50 years later, how has this massive silo been repurposed for a new generation? In Exeter, England, a mysterious underground tunnel system lies hidden below the city. Who built these secret passageways? And how have they evolved over the centuries? Thousands of miles away on historic Route 66 lies the entrance to a network of deep caves, the largest dry caverns in North America. But how much more remains undiscovered? Whether exploring decades old mines fraught with danger or investigating impossibly complex underground tunnel systems, UNDERGROUND MARVELS leaves no cavern, tunnel, bunker or mystery unturned.

In the all-new series, ABANDONED: EXPEDITION SHIPWRECK, experts follow investigations around the world that reveal the most epic, infamous and notorious shipwrecks from throughout history. From wartime disasters to commercial ship collisions, this series exposes the many volatile risks at sea and how they’ve shaped regulations and technological advancements, and also pieces together disasters from history to reveal what really happened and why. After the sinking of the ocean liner ‘Empress of Ireland,’ known as one of Canada’s worst maritime tragedies, experts look closer at the critical decisions made in the face of danger and how they can make all the difference and potentially save lives. In the wake of WWI, 74 of the most modern and powerful warships of the German High Seas fleet disappeared into the depths near Orkney Islands, Scotland. But why? What led to their demise? Following intel from maritime archaeologists, along with data from sonar mapping and CGI reenactments, ABANDONED: EXPEDITION SHIPWRECK looks to uncover new details about some of the most infamous wrecks from history.

UNDERGROUND MARVELS is produced for Science Channel by Phoenix Television. For Phoenix Television, Miles Jarvis and Jaimi West are executive producers. For Science Channel, Lindsey Foster Blumberg is executive producer and Jennifer Gross is producer.

ABANDONED: EXPEDITION SHIPWRECK is produced for Science Channel by Mallinson Sadler Productions. For Mallinson Sadler Productions, Phil Craig and Crispin Sadler are executive producers. For Science Channel, Lindsey Foster Blumberg is executive producer.

Hitler’s Hidden Secrets: An All New Season of “Secret Nazi Ruins” Premieres July 25

HITLER’S HIDDEN SECRETS: AN ALL NEW SEASON OF “SECRET NAZI RUINS” PREMIERES JULY 25 ON SCIENCE CHANNEL

Nazi Germany left their ominous footprint throughout the world, from tunnels and towers to underground bases and communication centers. To this day, the structural remains of Nazi Germany lie waiting to reveal the truth about Hitler’s tactics and guard clues about the nefarious plots he was planning to carry out. In an all-new season of the Science Channel series, SECRET NAZI RUINS, experts investigate these abandoned sites to dissect and reveal their true purpose and what covert projects they were intended for.

The all-new season of SECRET NAZI RUINS premieres Sunday, July 25 at 10pm ET/PT on Science Channel. In addition to watching SECRET NAZI RUINS on Science Channel, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using #SecretNaziRuins and following @ScienceChannel Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok.

History books claim that World War II began in 1939, but evidence shows Germany’s preparation for the war began years earlier. Long before the first shot, Hitler began a slow build up in the East with secret military projects under the guise of waterway projects such as dams and drawbridges. By 1938, Germany had established miles of bunkers, tunnels and factories built and ready for war. Experts investigate these mysterious structures and abandoned bases to piece together forgotten history and secrets few knew about — until now.

Throughout this season of SECRET NAZI RUINS, experts look to the terrifying yet truly groundbreaking sciences and technologies that stemmed from the dark imaginations of the Nazi elite in Peenemunde, a small German seaside city overtaken by the Nazis at the start of the war. What terrors might they have unleashed had their position not been betrayed? And would it have been a weapon of mass destruction that ended the war had Hitler believed in the center from the beginning?

Deep in the Owl Mountains of Poland lies a forgotten Nazi complex, the purpose of which remains largely unknown. Built sometime between 1943 and 1945, some have suggested its use was to shelter thousands of people from Allied bombs. But much of the concrete is still unaccounted for — could there be more tunnels no one has yet found? And even deeper secrets we have yet to uncover?

SECRET NAZI RUINS is produced by Go Button Media for Science Channel. Daniel Oron and Natasha Ryan are executive producers for Go Button. For Science Channel, executive producer is Neil Laird and producer is Andrew Lessner.

Viewers also won’t want to miss an all-new Science Channel special, HITLER’S AMERICAN BATTLEGROUND, premiering July 25 at 8pm ET/PT ahead of the the SECRET NAZI RUINS premiere. The two-hour special follows experts as they chart forgotten WWII underwater battlegrounds off America’s coasts, revealing the truth about Nazi submarines mercilessly stalking the Atlantic before US forces gained the upper hand.
