He's been chased, blindfolded and threatened with his life. He's negotiated with meth cookers, arms dealers and gangsters. Mark Allen Johnson has put his life on the line to get the stories from the AMERICAN UNDERWORLD.

Using unorthodox methods, Johnson uses a mix of brains and bravado to gain access to highly secretive worlds. Securing the trust of his subjects alone can be a deadly business, often requiring months of negotiations.

In tonight’s episode - on Discovery Channel at 9pm – Johnson enters the high-risk world of drugs.

Homemade drug manufacturing is big business, and one that is taking place in kitchens across America. He shows first-hand how drugs are made, distributed and used, from one of the largest crack cocaine business in Los Angeles to a highly toxic "shake 'n' bake" meth production process in rural Tennessee.

After extensive negotiations, Johnson also gains the trust of a major homemade steroid producer and supplier who cooks up performance-enhancing drugs from raw ingredients sent from secret foreign suppliers. He tests them on himself before distributing them to people in gyms and homes across America.
