DESCRIPTION:
(from History's press release, February 2016) HISTORY will premiere the new eight-part series "Billion Dollar Wreck" from Original Productions in association with executive producer Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes Productions. The hour-long series follows famed treasure hunter Martin Bayerle and his son Grant as they embark on a complex expedition in pursuit of both personal redemption and a billion dollars' worth of treasure aboard the renowned and mysterious sunken cruise liner, RMS Republic. "Billion Dollar Wreck" premieres Monday, February 8 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. One of the largest and most luxurious ocean liners of its time, Republic sunk shortly after its departure from New York Harbor in the early hours of January 24, 1909. Considered unsinkable, the White Star ship collided with another vessel and now sits at the bottom of the Atlantic. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle has spent the past 35 years researching Republic and her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth billions today. Bayerle's exhaustive investigation has turned up evidence that points to a deep-rooted cover-up which may involve some of the era's biggest historical figures, from the Tsar of Russia to Theodore Roosevelt.
