"Finding Escobar's Millions"
Premieres Friday, November 3 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel
 
        At one time Pablo Escobar -- the most wanted man on the planet -- buried masses of his estimated multi-billion-dollar fortune all over Colombia.  Legends say the vast majority of it has never been found.  With never-before-granted access and permission in Colombia, two former intelligence officers armed with the skills and training from 10 years of work in the CIA go on the hunt for the alleged hidden treasure in this all-new series.

         Doug Laux and Ben Smith, former CIA operations officers who served multiple tours throughout the Middle East, work with the original DEA agents that handled the case to infiltrate Escobar’s inner circle in search of the cash. This elite team uses unprecedented access to technology, a never-before-seen CIA tradecraft skill set and numerous inside sources to scour Columbia for the money.

         Doug and Ben first set their sights on Barrio Escobar, a former trash dump that the drug lord transformed into a neighborhood, providing housing for the poor and homeless during his reign. To this day, Pablo Escobar is highly regarded in the neighborhood, and the residents continue to be loyal to his legacy. Doug and Ben connect with a local and make their way inside the Barrio in an all-out search for Escobar’s cash, but curiosity from area residents forces them to scale back their investigation. Throughout the season, Doug and Ben scour Columbia for clues Escobar left behind, but will the two former operatives uncover Escobar’s fortune and secrets, or will they come up empty-handed?
