Green Light For Klondike

DISCOVERY Channel has given the go ahead for its first scripted programme, an epic period miniseries about the gold rush in Alaska with the working title Klondike.

The project, to be co-produced by Scott Free Television, Entertainment One and Nomadic Pictures, will mine Discovery's  “gold” docu reality trademark which has brought about successes like Gold Rush, Bering Sea Gold and Jungle Gold. The Klondike project follows in the successful footsteps of AMC’s Broken Trail and History’s Hatfield & McCoys. Both involved the docmakers in question bringing in their first entries in scripted programming
