Media Alert: “Prospectors” Marathon to Air Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday on The Weather Channel

WHAT: While holiday shoppers will be out as early as Thanksgiving this year, The Weather Channel will feature treasure hauls of another kind, with marathons of the popular series "Prospectors" on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Just like their predecessors 150 years ago, the gang in “Prospectors” has one goal: find their fortune. They brave the continent¹s most extreme mountain environments in search of the planet’s most precious gems, which can bring $3 million or more. But conditions are extreme and the work can be brutal – and if the weather doesn’t get the prospectors, the thieves might. However, with a little luck, a good eye and perseverance, the prospectors will have much to be thankful for.

WHEN/WHERE:  Thursday, Nov. 28, from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 a.m. ET

                        Friday, Nov. 29, from 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. ET
