Entertainment TV Tribute to ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Billy Brown Set On Discovery This Sunday — Watch The Trailer
Discovery Sets 'Valley of the Kings' Special About Largest Egypt Excavation in 100 Years (Exclusive Video)
Discovery is going for a pretty epic discovery with a two-hour special "Valley of the Kings: The Lost Tombs," TheWrap has learned. "The Lost Tombs," which will run on the Discovery Channel and stream on Discovery+, chronicles the largest excavation in Egypt in 100 years. Dr. Zahi Hawass is back and (respectfully, we're sure) tearing up the infamous Valley of the Kings looking for Queen Nefertiti's treasure, among other priceless artifacts. Readers may remember Hawass from April 2019's "Expedition Unknown: Egypt Live," also on Discovery, when his team uncovered a 2,500-year-old mummy of a high priest on live television.
“It’s every American’s God-given right to live wherever you want to live,” sayspatriarch in a new tribute video. That ethos has been at the center of the series as it has chronicled the Brown family’s life in the wilderness over the course of the past 12 seasons.
Brown passed away at 68 earlier this month after suffering a seizure. The network will air a new special, The Legacy of Billy Brown on Sunday, February 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT to celebrate his remarkable life.
Discovery describes the special as follows: “Through never-before seen footage and interviews, Billy speaks to the bush legacy he was driven to establish, fueled by faith and his deep adoration for his family. The Wolfpack will also honor the life of their dear patriarch and role model in the special through exclusive new and never-before seen interviews from Ami, Bear, Bam, Gabe, Noah, Bird and Rain.”
Billy Conigliaro, Bosox 1st pick, Tony's brother, dies at 73
BOSTON — Billy Conigliaro, the first-ever Red Sox draft pick who started out in the Boston outfield with star-crossed brother Tony and later spent years taking care of him after a heart attack, died Wednesday. He was 73. Conigliaro's family told the team he died at home in Beverly, Massachusetts. The club didn't provide a cause of death. Though he wound up winning a World Series ring with Oakland in 1973, Billy always remained a part of New England lore, forever connected by his local roots and the tragic events surrounding his older brother, powerful slugger Tony C. Born less than 10 miles from Fenway Park in Revere, Billy C.
Brown had been with the series since its launch in 2014. Alaskan Bush People wrapped its 12th season on October 29.

Billy’s son Bear shared a tribute of his own when he announced his father’s passing earlier this month: “He was our best friend — a wonderful and loving dad, granddad and husband and he will be dearly missed. He lived his life on his terms, off the grid and off the land and taught us to live like that as well. We plan to honor his legacy going forward, and to continue with his dream. We ask for privacy and prayers during this painful time! God bless everyone!”
