Earlier this week, NBC is developing a new adventure drama that is inspired by a true story, according to Variety.
Titled Goldbug, this series is about the true tale of gold lost in South America at the beginning of World War I. The story follows a Ph.D. student who travels halfway across the world to find the treasure her estranged mother never could. What begins as a hunt for gold quickly becomes a quest to solve a dark family mystery. This project is a female-led adventure drama.
