Adventurous start to the new year on Universal TV: In search of Cleopatra's sarcophagus, antique expert Danny McNamara chases terrorist Karim Farouk around the world. As of January 1st, the thirteen episodes of the US Blood & Treasure series will be on Wednesdays at 9:00 pm in duplicate.
With a huge terrorist attack on the pyramids of Giza, the dead terrorist Karim Farouk (Oded Fehr) reports back impressively. In the attack he steals a valuable artifact and kidnaps the respected archaeologist Dr. Ana Castillo (Alicia Coppola). This calls for former FBI agent and antiques specialist Danny McNamara (Matt Barr): Financed by Castillo's philanthropic financiers, he's on the hunt for the terrorist with art thief and ex-flame Lexi Vaziri (Sofia Pernas) – and finds himself in the center of an ancient conflict that threatens to shatter the foundations of civilization.
Alongside Matt Barr ("One Tree Hill"), Sofia Pernas ("The Brave"), Oded Fehr ("The Mummy") and Alicia Coppola ("The Legacy of the Secret Book") are James Callis ("Battlestar Galactica") Cunning smuggler Simon Hardwick, Katia Winter ("Dexter") as Interpol agent Gwen Karlsson and Michael James Shaw ("Limitless") as arms dealer Aiden Shaw to see. A second season is in production.
Universal TV shows the thirteen episodes of the first season Blood and Treasure from January 1, 2020 every Wednesday from 21.00 in double episodes.
