NEW YORK (AP) - The Discovery network has ordered its first scripted miniseries and it isn’t much of a stretch. It’s about hunting for gold.

The series, titled “Klondike,” is about six strangers in the1890s whose lives intersect as they search for gold in Alaska. It is based on the Charlotte Gray novel “Gold Diggers: Striking it Rich in the Klondike” and production will start in March in Alberta, Canada.

Discovery currently has three reality series about hunting for gold, two based in Alaska and one in Ghana.

Discovery hasn’t named any actors involved or set an airdate.
