[via press release from Discovery]

MIKE ROWE IS BACK AS AN EXOTIC NANNY, WETLAND WARRIOR AND LIGHTNING ROD INSTALLER WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES OF DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S DIRTY JOBS WITH MIKE ROWE PREMIERING OCTOBER 19

(Silver Spring, Md.) - The world's most sought-after guinea pig for all things dirty returns to Discovery Channel Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT beginning October 19th, for 10 all-new episodes of the Emmy(R)-nominated series DIRTY JOBS WITH MIKE ROWE. Host and creator Mike Rowe travels the country showcasing America's unsung heroes - from landfill operators to scrapple makers to horse testers - serving as apprentice to these hard-working and skilled men and women who make civilized life possible for the rest of us. Since the series first debuted in 2005, DIRTY JOBS WITH MIKE ROWE has provided a behind-the-scenes look at over 250 dirty jobs (and counting!) - in industries ranging from construction to sanitation to manufacturing.

In the first world premiere episode, Mike heads to Pilot Point, Texas to work at a ranch that harbors and breeds exotic animal species. He starts the day by cleaning the pen of ring-tailed lemurs, donning a helmet and thick leather gloves. Lemurs are very territorial and will attack anything or anyone who invades their space, and Mike quickly discovers the importance of protective gear. He then moves a porcupine into a small cage to determine its gender, potty trains baby kangaroos, and ends his day clipping the claws of a binturong (bearcat) - leaving Mike scarred and stained.

In other premiere episodes this fall, Mike will try his hand as a wetland warrior, sea lamprey exterminator, animal relocator, pinsetter mechanic, woolen mill operator and lightning rod installer, among various others, adding even more diversity to his eclectic resume.

DIRTY JOBS WITH MIKE ROWE was nominated for two Emmys(R) this year - in Outstanding Cinematography For Reality Programming and in Outstanding Reality Program. The men and women featured on the show were the motivation for Mike's initiative, mikeroweWORKS.com, which celebrates the importance of skilled labor and trade work in America.

DIRTY JOBS WITH MIKE ROWE is produced by Pilgrim Film & Television; Craig Piligian is the executive producer. Tim Pastore is the executive producer for Discovery Channel.
