Trafficked: Underworlds with Mariana Van Zeller 4

Mariana van Zeller continues her harrowing exploration into the inner workings of the most dangerous black markets on the planet.

The newest season of Trafficked continues to spotlight van Zeller's high-stakes, critical investigations into the black markets that dominate half the world's economy.

Join the intrepid host and executive producer as she travels to some of the world's most unstable regions and confronts key players in these underground economies.

In one ripped from the headlines story, Mariana is investigating how gold mining funds terrorism when she and her team get trapped in Niger after a military coup.

In another, she travels to war-torn Ukraine to investigate how the Russian invasion has upended the global surrogacy business and driven many couples to the black market.

Time and again, Mariana puts her own life at risk to access and better understand the people who work in these criminal underworlds.

Armed with inside access, each episode follows van Zeller as she investigates a different underworld to talk to the players, learn the business, and better understand the world's multitrillion-dollar shadow economy.

Van Zeller travels across the globe and meets with everyone from traffickers, smugglers, assassins and terrorists to law enforcement, government officials, experts, victims and more to provide a 360-degree look into these global underworlds.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Assassins": Hitmen murder nearly 3,000 people a year around the globe, yet little is known about them.

What drives a person to make a living out of killing?

In this episode, van Zeller journeys inside this violent trade, first tracking down an assassin in her hometown of Los Angeles before heading to a country where contract killings have become an almost daily occurrence: South Africa.
