The Discovery Channel premiered its first-ever scripted TV mini-series, “Klondike,” on Monday night. Discovery’s material normally consists of documentary-style series and programs. “Klondike” will mark the channel’s first attempt at a period narrative. “Klondike” narrates actual events surrounding the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s.

The story follows two famous adventurers, Bill Haskell and Byron Epstein. They travel North West together searching for gold. Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”) plays Haskell and Augustus Prew (“Kick-Ass 2”) plays Epstein. The plot will mainly focus on the friendship between these two.

Recently, Richard Madden said in an interview that “Klondike” was the hardest acting job that he has had to date. The material entailed shooting in some remote areas with cruel terrain and unforgiving climate. Madden also did many of his own stunts, putting him in even more dangerous situations. The actor stated that the acting job on “Game of Thrones” felt like a challenge, until he experienced the perils of shooting “Klondike.”The logistics of filming proved to be as harsh as the trek in the story.

Hopefully all of the hard work will pay off in the new series. If it goes well, who knows what will come from the Discover Channel next?
