The new show, All That Glitters, will feature Dakota Fred and his crew mining for gold in Haines, Alaska. It will be directed by Kirk Roos. Many stories and plot elements from Gold Rush were left unsolved, and the new show will attempt to fill in some of those gaps in the storyline, including the one where Dakota Fred had an obsession with crossing a waterfall to find hidden gold and the Dalton/Klondike trail.
The show gives Dakota Fred’s crew a chance to search for gold with a fresh perspective. Fans will finally be able to see the real Dakota Fred Hurt. All That Glitters will show how he and his crew battle the harsh natural elements of northern Alaska, and how they are able to afford their adventures, as they are huge financial risks.
Dakota Fred is 71 years old, and the fact that he is out there with his crew, fighting the elements, shows how he is a man of perseverance, and survival. The new show isn’t just about gold mining; it’s also about the struggle of man. It’s about just how far the idea that you are within miles of striking gold, figuratively and literally, will take someone.
The new show could cost more to film than the crew will make. It’s a huge gamble, but it’s one Dakota Fred is willing to take.
While it seemed like Dakota Fred Hurt disappeared, it turns out we are about to see him in greater detail than we ever have. After being let go from a dispute with Discovery when he and his crew asked for a pay raise, he has left and decided to make a new show on his own terms, All That Glitters. The show is very promising, and speaking of promises, Dakota Fred guarantees that this show will be more “true to life”. For all the fans out there who were wondering about whatever happened to Dakota Fred Hurt, your answer is that he and his crew are starting a new and improved show to shed light on their adventures in the gold mining business.
