Plot Synopsis

FINDING ESCOBAR'S MILLIONS is a one-hour reality series that follows Doug Laux and Ben Smith, former CIA operations officers who served multiple tours throughout the Middle East, as they work with the original DEA agents that handled the case to infiltrate Pablo Escobar's inner circle in search of the drug lord's multi-billion-dollar fortune that's buried all over Colombia. Legends say the vast majority of the cash has never been found. With never-before-granted access and permission in Colombia, these two former intelligence officers armed with the skills and training from 10 years of work in the CIA go on the hunt for the alleged hidden treasure. Doug and Ben first set their sights on Barrio Escobar, a former trash dump that the drug lord transformed into a neighborhood, providing housing for the poor and homeless during his reign. To this day, Pablo Escobar is highly regarded in the neighborhood, and the residents continue to be loyal to his legacy. Doug and Ben connect with a local and make their way inside the Barrio in an all-out search for Escobar's cash, but curiosity from area residents forces them to scale back their investigation. Throughout the season, Doug and Ben scour Colombia for clues Escobar left behind, but will the two former operatives uncover Escobar's fortune and secrets, or will they come up empty-handed?
On Friday, December 8, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel premiered "The X," the season finale of FINDING ESCOBAR'S MILLIONS. Meeting with Pablo's former lawyer, Doug and Ben discover that Escobar's partner, Gacha, was the one who buried the millions, and head to his properties to dig. After recovering nothing, they set their sights back on La Catedral for one final excavation.
