Discovery to Launch ‘Gold Rush’ Spin-Off

Series to Launch on

Discovery will introduce “Gold Rush: White Water,” a spin-off from long-running docuseries “Gold Rush,” featuring miners Dakota Fred and his son Dustin returning to McKinley Creek Alaska determined to make a fortune no matter the risk. But to find the big gold payout, they’ll put their lives on the line by diving deep beneath the raging waters of one of Alaska’s wildest creeks. It premieres on Friday, January 19.

The logline: In this all-new series, the Dakota Boys put together a team of intrepid divers, mountaineers and bush mechanics to go where no miner has ever managed to explore – the depths of freezing plunge pools in white water rapids that have only recently become accessible. Nothing will stop these guys – they’ll dive in raging torrents with a six-inch suction dredge where one wrong move could have deadly consequences.

”Gold Rush: Water Water” is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw Television, where Dimitri Doganis, James Bates and are executive producers and Tim Dalby and Theo Williams are series producers. For Discovery Channel, Matthew Vafiadis is executive producer and Greg Wolf is coordinating producer.
