  'KLONDIKE' HISTORICAL SERIES
FIRST PICTURES WITH RICHARD MADDEN
Discovery Channel has revealed the first pictures from their first scripted series KLONDIKE. Based on Charlotte Gray's book 'Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike' and starring GAME OF THRONES and CINDERELLA star Richard Madden, the tale brings to life the story of six strangers and their collective fight for survival and wealth in a small, frontier town in the remote KLONDIKE. The story follows the lives of two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein, in the late 1890s as they flock to the gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory. This man-versus-nature tale places our heroes in a land full of undiscovered wealth, but ravaged by harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters including greedy businessmen, seductive courtesans and native tribes witnessing the destruction of their people and land by opportunistic entrepreneurs.
  KLONDIKE CAST
The Ridley Scott produced series also has Sam Shepard, Abbie Cornish, Tim Roth, Tim Blake Nelson, Marton Csokas, Ian Hart in the cast.

  1. I like the idea of a musical comedy tv series. It sounds quite fun and feels new. We could use something fresh.

    2. I just clicked it. Whoa, he'd been eating too much mash and spendt too much time sitting on his arse in a pub before making the movie. Photo's like that are the kind we don't let the Tourist Bureau use when promoting our magical land of gorgeous men:)

    3. and it is extremely difficult if not impossible for a man who is forty or above to change his body that way, but he did it. It took him eight months of extreme training. 300 actors had special trainers and special programme. That programme became a huge hit after that, because the director didn't find muscly actors, but he chosen good actors whom he gave muscles later on :)

    4. A Klondike bar is a frozen treat. It is vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate. The jingle in their adverts is 'What would you do for a Klondike bar?" Here's their FB page https://www.facebook.com/klondike

  5. I can't imagen that I would read a book in the snow. That doesn't look realistic to me. But if I have the chance I will look at Klondike!

    1. I was puzzled by his reading a book in the snow too :) Maybe it was a Bible... and he was praying for some sun?
