‘Klondike’ Miniseries Premiere Date Announced by Discovery

Discovery’s long-awaited miniseries event Klondike finally has a premiere date. The network announced today the six hour, three night event will air on consecutive nights beginning Monday, January 20th at 9 PM ET/PT and concluding Wednesday, January 22nd.

Based on Charlotte Gray’s book “Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike,” Klondike focuses on the perilous events surrounding America’s last great Gold Rush. The miniseries stars Richard Madden (King of the North Robb Stark on Game of Thrones), Abbie Cornish (RoboCop, Limitless), Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs) and Sam Shepard (August: Osage County, Out Of The Furnace).

“We have wanted to get into the scripted game for quite some time but knew we needed to wait for the right script,” said Eileen O’Neill, Group President, Discovery Channel and TLC, and KLONDIKE Executive Producer in a statement. “We had to think about the kind of story that would appeal to our audience but also be something everyone would enjoy. When KLONDIKE came along, there was no question that this was the story we were meant to tell. This is truly a coming of age story about love, friendship and family but also a story about greed and how it can turn people. KLONDIKE is a beautiful, exciting and epic tale that revolves around GOLD! There truly could not be a better story for Discovery to tell.”

Once again, Klondike premieres Monday, January 20th at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery.
