An Iconic Boat Makes a Comeback on SWORDS Season Premiere

Discovery's Hit Series Narrated by Mike Rowe Returns to the High Seas Thursday, May 12 at 10PM E/P

(Silver Spring, Md.) - It survived the legendary "Perfect Storm." Now, the Hannah Boden, Captain Linda Greenlaw's legendary fishing vessel, returns to the treacherous but lucrative waters of the North Atlantic as SWORDS: LIFE ON THE LINE returns for its third season, premiering Thursday, May 12 at 10PM e/p on Discovery Channel.

The Grand Banks off Newfoundland and Georges Bank off the Gulf of Maine hold a valuable commodity: swordfish. The trouble is that these waters are also home to some of the wildest storms on earth. When cold fronts barrel down from Canada and meet hurricane activity from the South, the results can be deadly - as the Hannah Boden witnessed during the "Perfect Storm" of 1991, when the Andrea Gail went down in 100-foot waves and lost all six of her crew. It's been nearly 20 years since that fateful October, when Greenlaw was the last person to speak to Andrea Gail captain - Billy Tyne (portrayed by George Clooney in the 2000 feature film) - before his boat and crew were lost at sea.

The new season opens as the wily and calculating Captain Scotty Drabinowicz renews his friendship with the veteran Greenlaw, but as the two steam toward the fishing grounds of the Grand Banks their alliance is quickly put to the test. Meanwhile, Captain Slick and his young crew of the Frances Anne return to Georges Bank with a greenhorn who can't seem to get anything right. Will this newbie last the season? Finally, Captain Chris "Chompers" Hansen of the Big Eye scrambles to assemble his crew after dropouts and no shows. Will his ragtag team be able to step it up and deliver a big pay day?

SWORDS: LIFE ON THE LINE is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia company, and BermanBraun. Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal and Jeff Conroy are executive producers for Original Productions. Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun are executive producers for BermanBraun. Josh Berkely is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
