Matt Barr Blood & Treasure

Valor vet Matt Barr has joined CBS’ forthcoming quest to save the world in the action-adventure drama Blood & Treasure, our sister site Deadline reports.

In the series — which is slated for summer 2019 — a brilliant antiquities expert (Barr) and a cunning art thief (The Brave‘s Sofia Pernas) team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. The pair then find themselves in the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.

In addition to The CW’s Valor — which was cancelled in May after one season — Barr’s TV credits include Sleepy Hollow, Hellcats, Harper’s Island and One Tree Hill.
