The investigations of a group of genealogists, always grappling with mysterious and tangled stories
Season 1 (4×44’)
Stolen inheritances, forged wills, illegitimate children, mysterious murders and distant relatives who die without direct descendants, leaving a fortune to unsuspecting great-grandchildren on the other side of the world. Often, daily news tell of intricate succession affairs, disputed estates that may conceal heinous crimes. At the centre of it all is money and the greed of those who want to get hold of it, at any cost.
Heir Hunters is an original factual series about an agency specialised in genealogical research. A team of investigators and experts with a single mission: to return the inheritance to the rightful owner, digging down to the sixth degree of kinship of the deceased, among real and alleged fraudsters, forged documents and unconfessed family histories.
