Synopsis

Diamond Hunters traces the torrid fortunes of a family unable to forgive and forget. Johnny, a successful diamond hunter, gets sucked back into a family that had been his own, before the patriarch, Jacob Van der Byl, abandoned him 20 years ago.

Painful memories of an unjust father and a long lost love come back to reality as Johnny is pitted against his own half-brother Benedict in a fight over two women, a diamond empire and ultimately, his very survival.

The series describes Johnny's thwarted attempts to win the approval of Jacob, and the under-hand schemes by which the inimical Benedict plans to defeat him.

Tracey, Benedict's sister and Johnny's true love, further complicates the fraternal rivalry, as all attempts to overcome the demons that survive from their troubled childhood.

The series stars Roy Scheider, Alyssa Milano and Sean Patrick Flanery and was shot on location in South Africa.
