Watch the series premiere of Blood and Treasure live on CBS with Amazon Channels

The 2019 summer television season is kicking off with the debut of the CBS blockbuster series, Blood and Treasure. Find out how to watch it live!

With the 2018-2019 television series winding down, it’s time for the summer TV season to kick into high gear. It starts with the new CBS action-adventure series, Blood and Treasure.

Starring Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas, Blood and Treasure is the perfect summer show. Barr plays Danny McNamara, an antiquities expert who partners up with the cunning art thief, Lexi Vaziri (Pernas).

Together, they must team up to stop a terrorist who uses various stolen treasures to fund his grand schemes. Of course, McNamara and Vaziri have a sordid history together which is brought to life through the electric chemistry between the leads.

While Blood and Treasure doesn’t appear to be anything award-worthy, it has high-octane action sequences and an exciting plotline akin to something like The Librarians or The Mummy. The two-hour series premiere will kick-off tonight at 9:00 PM ET/PT and on CBS before it has its permanent time slot premiere next week at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, you can subscribe to CBS through Amazon Channels to watch parts one and two of “The Curse of Cleopatra” live! And if you won’t be available to watch it live, you’ll be able to watch the premiere afterward through CBS All Access or through the Amazon Prime app with your subscription.

As for what the first episode will be about, as it does serve as the introductory episode into the series, we can expect it to set up the plot, characters, and exposition. But Danny and Lexi will get to work fast when news of Antony and Cleopatra’s long-lost tomb surfaces and it becomes a race against the clock for the duo to get to it before a ruthless killer does first.

Check out the official trailer and synopsis for the series right here:

A globe-trotting action-adventure drama about a brilliant antiquities expert and a cunning art thief who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. Danny McNamara is a former FBI agent specializing in stolen arts and antiquities. Lexi Vaziri is a resourceful art thief who is haunted by the tragic loss of her father, which she blames on Danny.

When terrorist Karim Farouk absconds with a priceless artifact and kidnaps Danny’s mentor, Dr. Anna Castillo, Danny recruits Lexi to help him bring Farouk to justice and rescue Anna. As they crisscross the world hunting for their target, Danny and Lexi unexpectedly find themselves at the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.
