Featuring an all-star cast including Richard Madden (King of the North Robb Stark of Game of Thrones, A Promise), Abbie Cornish (RoboCop, Limitless), Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs) and Sam Shepard (August: Osage County, Out Of The Furnace), Klondike tells the powerful story of the last great Gold Rush in our history. This epic six hour, three night television event kicks off on Discovery Channel Monday, January 20 at 9 PM ET/PT, followed by part two Tuesday, January 21 at 9PM ET/PT and part three Wednesday, January 22 at 9PM ET/PT.
Last night, Discovery fans, partners, executives and media gathered for a gold carpet premiere at the Best Buy Theater in new York City to celebrate this network first. With a Monte Carlo bar, life-size Dawson City recreation and the Klondike stars themselves, the premiere fully immersed guests into 1897 world of the Yukon Territory.
Additionally, today through Monday, the public is invited to travel back in time to the height of the 1890′s Yukon Gold Rush with a life-size replication of Dawson City, the original city that never slept, at the Discovery Times Square Exhibit. Tickets are free and available for reservation
Unable to make it to New York but ready to start exploring the wild Yukon territory? Discovery has an engaging site of Klondike extras, including “Behind the Scenes” clips, a digital history of the Klondike Gold Rush, and intimate interviews with stars Richard Madden and Abbie Cornish.
