Intoxicating mixture of danger, drama and the daily grind
What’s the most dangerous job in the world? If you watch the Discovery Channel, you might think it’s a career as a deep-sea fisherman, and you won’t get much argument here. Perhaps that’s what is so fascinating about Deadliest Catch – it’s the daily danger, personality drama and the mundane activities that come along with any job that provide fascinating viewing each Tuesday night.
That intoxicating mixture has proven a winner for Discovery, as the sixth season of Deadliest Catch launches one of the most highly-anticipated premiers of the year. This season takes viewers through some of the roughest situations the captains and crews have ever had to face on the high seas. From treacherous weather conditions to crew conflict to the death of beloved Captain Phil Harris, each of this season’s 16 episodes brings viewers into the intimate world of these crab fisherman.
On Monday, April 12, we worked with Andy Hillstrand, captain of the Time Bandit to complete twelve interviews with morning shows all over the country. Highlights include interviews with: Bob and Sheri, The Wiseman and Frank on WBZO, and The Danny Bonaduce Show.
You can catch the latest episodes on Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.
