DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, September 2011) He's been chased, blindfolded and threatened with his life. He's negotiated with meth cookers, arms dealers and gangsters. Mark Allen Johnson puts everything on the line to pursue stories most wouldn't dare. In Discovery Channel's all-new AMERICAN UNDERWORLD, premiering Monday, September 19th at 10PM ET/PT, Johnson enters some of the most extreme, violent and hard-to-access subcultures in the country - from drug manufacturers to the sex trade - to tell the stories of an underground world that could be right next door. Using unorthodox methods, Johnson uses a mix of brains and bravado to gain access to highly secretive worlds. Securing the trust of his subjects alone can be a deadly business, often requiring months of negotiations. Pointing a video camera at them truly puts his life at risk. Entering these worlds - sometimes blindfolded and separated from his crew - Johnson brings back some of the most raw and compelling footage on television.
