The miniseries is based on Charlotte Gray's book, "Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike," which follows the tale of "two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein, in the late 1890s as they undertake the next, gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory," according to Discovery.

Production on the show was set to kick off back in March in Alberta, Canada.
