Emmy Award-winning director and acclaimed Egyptologist Ramy Romany will journey across the globe to investigate secrets and myths of the most fascinating burial sites, mass graves and ancient tombs on Earth in a forthcoming Discovery Channel series.

Produced by Burbank’s Fight or Flight Studios, formerly Punch Drunk Pictures, Mummies Unwrapped will feature Romany (pictured) as he travels to ancient Egyptian tombs and Mayan mass graves to untangle the legends, myths, curses and cover-ups of our collective ancient past.

The series will also utilize cutting-edge technologies to introduce new theories about how ancient civilizations once lived and died while looking to unravel the origin of each mummy, the life that once was and determine what, if any, mystical forces or supernatural phenomena were involved.

Fight or Flight’s Rob Hill, Dave Greider, Scott Hartford and Romany serve as executive producers alongside Discovery Channel’s Daniel A. Schwartz and Michael Gara. Cameron Doyle is coordinating producer.

Mummies Unwrapped premieres April 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel, following the season debut of Expedition Unknown with Josh Gates at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
