Walk the hidden streets of the old Seattle and visit Prohibition-era hideouts beneath Minneapolis.
- Authors Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran bring their unique view of America to the screen.
- A one-of-a-kind travelogue.
- From flooded mines to jazz-age hideaways, the Marks plumb America's subterranean depths.
The Marks--Sceurman and Moran--have seen facets of America that would chill the local chamber of commerce to the bone. They have turned their shared obsession into a unique series of guides to the weirdest that the nation has to offer, and now they bring their unique travelogue to the screen in this fascinating series celebrating the dark, twisted, offbeat and unusual.
For centuries, archeologists have dug for clues to our history. Here the Marks do some digging of their own, finding secret tunnels, caves and even cities that have been hidden for decades. From New Jersey tunnels dug by Napoleon's brother to the city beneath the streets of modern Seattle, each stop illuminates another aspect of hidden history. Tour underground railroad stops and jazz-era hiding holes, and dive in the silent waters of a flooded lead mine in Missouri.
