Travel Channel has picked up new history adventure series Buried Worlds with Don Wildman from Karga Seven Pictures.

In the series, Travel Channel host Don Wildman takes his thirst for adventure into terrifying new territory to explore mankind’s darkest mysteries. He is on a mission of a more cryptic sort, heading to remote regions of Peru, Haiti, Bulgaria and beyond – visiting the dark chasms and caverns of the paranormal and supernatural, tracking alleged lingering ghosts, devilish demons, vampires and witches burned at the stake.

The seven episode series premieres on Travel Channel on Monday, June 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. A two-hour special event finale airs on Monday, July 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

“’Buried Worlds’ is a quest that flips the switch on the paranormal and the supernatural, and sheds new light on the dark origin of legends and myths,” says Wildman.  “And I investigate those legends and myths first-hand, traveling to their sources in some very surprising places.” 

As he joins in taboo rituals, comes face-to-face with paranormal entities and witnesses deadly practices, Wildman is seeking out the darkest legends in the world and experiencing them for himself. His adventures take him to the Virginia woods for a harrowing encounter with demonic spirits and to Poland and Germany to hunt for powerful occult objects hidden by the Nazis. Later in the season, Wildman’s journey takes him to the coast of Peru – the site of the world’s largest mass human sacrifice, never revealed before on TV – and comes face-to-face with an ancient tribal god.
