The History Channel follows Northern Michigan treasure seekers in Canada with the new outdoors adventure television series The Curse of Oak Island.

After 200 years of small discoveries hinting at an Oak Island buried treasure, the search on the wooded island off the Nova Scotia coast screeched to a stop. Now two brothers, Rich and Marty Lagina, originally from the Upper Peninsula‘s Kingsford, are resurrecting the infamous hunt. (Marty Lagina now lives in Traverse City and is the owner of Mari Vineyard.)

Read about Traverse City’s Marty Lagina and how he’s gone from Northern Michigan energy mogul to treasure hunter.

The roles of the team go something like this: Marty supplies the financial support from his successful career as an energy businessman, and brother Rick—heavily intrigued by the hunt since childhood—leads their pursuit of a lifetime. As co-owners of most of the island, the brothers have allied with a pair of permanent island residents: a father-son treasure seeking team. But will Oak Island reveal her long-lusted secrets?
