Discovery Announces New ‘Deadliest Catch’ Series

Newport, Oregon is one of the last remaining fishing towns along the edge of the notoriously violent ‘Graveyard of the Pacific’ that stretches from Oregon to British Columbia. Here, generations of Dungeness crab fishermen and their families sacrifice everything that they have, including life itself, to carve an existence from the sea. From Original Productions, creators of the multiple Emmy Award-winning series DEADLIEST CATCH, comes DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE (w/t) premiering in the fall of 2016 on the Discovery Channel.

Thousands of vessels and lives have been lost while battling the seas in what’s considered the deadliest commercial fishery in the world. The Oregon coast bursts with sea life, but also a labyrinth of sandbars and currents. DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE goes on board the vessels that navigate this stretch of sea that churns up massive waves and unpredictable conditions. But what is it like for those left behind? DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE will also explore the lives of the families themselves – many of whom have called the village home for generations. Every year fishermen are lost to the turbulent waters, but the families of Newport knowingly bear that burden as they fight to keep the legacy of their town alive.
