LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Animal Planet is going a little mad.
The cable channel has ordered six episodes of "Madman of the Sea," a new reality series featuring "daredevil fisherman" Matt Watson. Said hour, from Hoff Productions, will track the New Zealander as he attempts to search for and tag top-level predators like mako sharks, striped marlin and bluefin tuna.
The newcomer will premiere Tuesday, March 2 at 10:00/9:00c following "Wild Recon."
Watson previously toplined Discovery's "Man vs. Fish" specials, which are expected to return later this year.
