Plot Synopsis

BLOOD & TREASURE is a one-hour action-adventure drama series about a brilliant antiquities expert and a cunning art thief who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. Danny McNamara is a former FBI agent specializing in stolen arts and antiquities. Lexi Vaziri is a resourceful art thief who is haunted by the tragic loss of her father, which she blames on Danny. When terrorist Karim Farouk absconds with a priceless artifact and kidnaps Danny's mentor Dr. Ana Castillo, Danny recruits Lexi to help him bring Farouk to justice and rescue Ana. As they chase down Farouk, they encounter unscrupulous individuals who may either be useful allies or dangerous enemies, including Aiden Shaw, an arms dealer who acts solely in his self-interest, and Simon Hardwick, an expert at procuring pilfered artifacts. Danny and Lexi are assisted by Father Chuck, a childhood friend of Danny's who works at the Vatican Foreign Ministry in Rome. Their hunt draws the attention of Interpol agent Gwen Karlsson, who wants Farouk brought to justice, but won't allow Danny and Lexi to break international laws in the process. As they crisscross the world hunting their target, Danny and Lexi unexpectedly find themselves at the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization. The series premieres with a special two-hour episode on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 9-11pm ET/PT on CBS, and moves to its regular timeslot -- Tuesday at 10pm -- the following week.
On Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, CBS premiered "The Revenge of Farouk," the Season 1 finale of BLOOD & TREASURE. Secrets are exposed, fates are sealed, and Danny and Lexi's lives will never be the same after Farouk's master plan is put into action. Guest cast: David Paetkau (Major Reece), Massimo Ruggiero (Bike Messenger), Maxim Roy (Coroner), Maurizio Terrazzano (Marco), Claudia Gosselin (Museum Greeter), Chadi Alhelou (Museum Security Guard), Michel Zaccour (Dignitary), and Jason Cavalier (Kyle/Reece's Security).

Six weeks earlier -- on Wednesday June 26 -- CBS renewed BLOOD & TREASURE for a second season.
