Tonight fans of GOLD RUSH will be treated not only to a special airing of an all-new episode to kick-off Discovery’s epic KLONDIKE mini-series, they will also be able to start their night of gold fever with a special episode of THE DIRT, featuring miners from GOLD RUSH and actors from KLONDIKE.

THE DIRT will explore the connection between today’s gold-seekers and the 19th-century KLONDIKE gold rush miners. Hosted by Christo Doyle, who also serves as executive producer of GOLD RUSH, this KLONDIKE episode of THE DIRT will feature interviews with key characters from KLONDIKE, including Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch, Limitless), Johnny Simmons (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and Conor Leslie (Chained), as well as the GOLD RUSH miners, including Parker Schnabel, “Dakota” Fred Hurt and Dustin Hurt.

Conor Leslie plays courageous Sabine. As a young woman of the day trying to start a new life for herself, making her way to Dawson City, there were many challenges. Get a sneak peek from THE DIRT, as she discusses her KLONDIKE character:

Additionally, KLONDIKE executive producer Dolores Gavin, director Simon Cellan Jones and production designer Ken Rempel, who helped recreate the Canadian boomtown of Dawson City, will provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Discovery’s KLONDIKE, as well as a sneak peek from the upcoming episode of GOLD RUSH.

This special episode of THE DIRT premieres tonight, Monday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. ET/PT. It will be followed by Part Two of Friday’s episode of GOLD RUSH at 8/9c—and fans will NOT want to miss that!

Then, KLONDIKE will premiere at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by Part Two tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and Part Three on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Based on actual events, KLONDIKE tells the story of the last great Gold Rush in history. In 1897, two friends make the perilous journey through North American wilderness to the Klondike boom town Dawson City, “The Paris of the North,” where murder, revenge, riches and redemption await. From executive producer Ridley Scott, starring Richard Madden, Abbie Cornish, Sam Shepard and Tim Roth, among others!
