Discovery Channel's first scripted television show 'Klondike' will stick with what the network does best, show about the great outdoors.


The series will follow the true story of gold rushers flocking to Yukon in the late 18th century to try and find a fortune in gold, Contactmusic reported.

Canadian historian Charlotte Gray's book 'Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike'' is being used as a guide for historical accuracy as well basing the story around it.

Delores Gavin, Discovery's executive vice president said that they have to see how people respond to the show, and then they want to be lean and mean in how they move forward.
