11 Television Canada has started production on Fool’s Gold for Discovery Canada and Discovery Europe.

The docu-comedy series about gold mining in Fort France is set to air in 2014 on Discovery Canada and across Europe and Africa on Discovery Europe.

Discovery Canada commissioned the eight-episode, half-hour series, which sees Todd Ryznar and childhood friends mining in an old abandoned gold mine. The series was developed by Kevin Healey and Hilary Frimond.

“Todd and the guys are simultaneously aspirational and hilarious. They fight, they laugh, they party and, oh yeah, they also work their butts off trying to find the illusive shiny metal that will make them rich,” said Healey, the executive producer for 11 Television Canada.

The other exec producers are Chris Hilton and Jesse Fawcett.

11 Television Canada is based in Toronto and has factual entertainment formats including Panic Button, Cover Me Canada, Destination Fear and Risky Business.
