Gold Rush fans are used to miners going to great lengths to strike it rich, but in Discovery’s latest spin-off show, White Water, “Dakota Fred” Hurt and his son Dustin are headed deep beneath the water’s surface. In the new reality series, which premieres in January, the father son duo return to McKinley Creek, Alaska, where they’ve enlisted a team of intrepid divers, mountaineers and bush mechanics to search for gold deep in one of Alaska’s wildest creeks. The location, which only recently became available, is surrounded by white water rapids, forcing the guys to dive into raging torrents. Despite the danger, Fred and Dustin are determined to make a fortune, no matter the risk.
