TV viewers have gold fever this year, and what better way to cool it than with the season premiere of truTVs Black Gold?
True, Black Gold focuses on oil, not actual gold, but with the price of gas and oil these days, finding oil could easily translate into a gold rush for some lucky crew. But, the search for oil is certainly a dangerous one, as seen in the opening episode of the 5th season of Black Gold. According to truTV:
The 5th season of Black Gold gets off to a hot start with temps - and tempers – rising, with no end in sight. Brandon struggles to keep a crew on Rig 28, and puts his hands at risk by running a bare bones operation. When a worm hits the dirt, it could be the end of his drilling days. Cheston's found a new gig with plenty of perks, but gets lonely on his own. Will a heartfelt plea from his pal be enough to get him back with Big Dog? And when a gas leak sends the roughnecks running, will they all make it out alive?
Black Gold starts Season Five tonight, Wednesday, December 19, on truTV at 10 p.m., with the premiere of episode, "Under Pressure."
