Klondike - Trailer
Year 2014Genre(s) Dramas
When news gets round about a gold discovery in the Klondike region of the Yukon, Canada in 1897, it becomes one of the last great gold rushes in history. Bill Haskell and Byron Epstein are two hopeful travellers with an ambition of wealth who travel up to Dawson City (often dubbed 'The Paris of the North') to receive their fortune. However, digging up a life of luxury becomes less straightforward as they are forced to face bitter sub-zero temperatures, gold-digging temptresses and men who won't think twice about killing for profit. Making an easy fortune is one thing; surviving long enough to use it is another.
'Klondike' is a historical drama mini-series based on genuine events during the late 19th Century's Klondike Gold Rush. It saw a plethora of single women looking for rich husbands, a collective hysteria that saw many abandon their careers and a huge stampede of wealth-seekers that filled the town. 'Klondike' has been directed by Simon Cellan Jones ('A Fine Romance', 'Some Voices', 'The Queen's Sister') and co-produced by Oscar nominated Ridley Scott ('The Good Wife', 'Stoker', 'American Gangster'). The series is the first to be aired by the Discovery Channel and the first episode is due to hit screens on January 20th 2014.
