Premiering on Sunday, July 9 from 9-11pm ET/PT, 'Quest For Atlantis: Startling New Secrets' will join myth and legend with the findings of respected archeologists and explorers in an effort to find the truth behind this most celebrated of lost civilizations.

Mariano will be the resident "jack of all trades," offering pragmatic, resourceful input on a variety of investigations.
