AFTER THE CATCH returns for its fourth season on Tuesday, June 15 at 10PM ET/PT, bringing together the stars of DEADLIEST CATCH to share a few fish tales from the shore. This year, Bering Sea Captains Sig Hansen (F/V Northwestern), Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand (F/V Time Bandit), and Keith Colburn (F/V Wizard) will have a few laughs, recap memorable moments, and pay tribute to their fallen brother, Captain Phil Harris. Set in a New Orleans hot spot – Blue Nile bar – they’ll discuss the highs and lows they encountered during the past fishing season and watch never-before-seen footage from the high seas.
Hosted by Mike Rowe, narrator of DEADLIEST CATCH and host of Discovery’s DIRTY JOBS, AFTER THE CATCH will feature various special guests, including deckhands from the fleet, DEADLIEST CATCH producers, and Coast Guard heroes, for this five-part series. In addition, as in years past, local fisherman will sit down to chat with the Captains to share their own stories. In New Orleans, discussion with members of the local fishing community will turn to the situation in the Gulf, and how it’s affecting fishing in the area. New this season: each episode ofAFTER THE CATCH will focus on one particular boat and crew. A gumbo cook-off and an oyster-eating contest are also in store this season.
The five-part series premieres Tuesdays at 10PM beginning June 15 following all-new episodes of DEADLIEST CATCH. AFTER THE CATCH is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions. Paul Gasek and Tracy Rudolph are executive producers for Discovery Channel, Thom Beers and Jeff Conroy are executive producers from Original Productions, and Matt Bennett and Tim Mann are executive producers from Silent Crow Productions on behalf of Original Productions.
