Apple TV+ announces new Apple Original podcast “Missed Fortune,” debuting 8/15

Hosted by journalist and former Outside Podcast host Peter Frick-Wright, the series tells the true story of one man’s obsession with a controversial treasure hunt orchestrated by art dealer Forrest Fenn.

Apple TV+ debuts the trailer and announces the premiere date of the new Apple Original podcast “Missed Fortune,” with the first three episodes of the new nine-part series releasing on Monday, August 15. Hosted by journalist and former Outside Podcast host Peter Frick-Wright, “Missed Fortune” is based on the true story of one man’s years-long quest to find a million dollar treasure hidden in 2010 by eccentric art dealer Forrest Fenn.

Since the hunt began, thousands of searchers have gone out in pursuit of the treasure, with at least five of them losing their lives in the process. “Missed Fortune” follows one searcher over the course of eight years, on a hunt that triggers a series of unintended consequences. As Fenn’s treasure gains international attention, people are forced to reexamine exactly what Fenn set in motion.

New episodes of the podcast will debut weekly on Monday on Apple Podcasts and via RSS at https://apple.co/Missed_Fortune.

Produced by High Five Content in association with 30 Minutes West and Outside Magazine, “Missed Fortune” is executive produced by Frick-Wright, Andrew Jacobs and Robbie Carver.
