If you a good action-adventure series this summer, look no further than CBS’s new show Blood and Treasure. The drama series follows Danny McNamara, a former FBI agent that specializes in antiques, who he teams up with Lexi Vaziri (Sofia Pernas), an art thief, to track down a terrorist who gets his funding through stolen treasure.

The pair travel around the world on a mission to find their target, and stumble into a 2,000-year-old battle for the “cradle of civilization.” With additional romance drama (Danny and Lexi used to date), an Indiana Jones vibe, and a bit of mythology, this may be a good summer series to get invested in.  

While we can’t wait to watch the show’s premiere episode, one breakout star from the show is Matt Barr, who plays the above mentioned FBI agent Danny in Blood and Treasure. So, here’s what to know about the handsome leading man.
