[via press release from Discovery]


-Three-Part Series Premieres on June 8 at 9PM-

The Bering Sea, the Gulf of Alaska, and the North Atlantic are among the deadliest waterways across the world. DEADLY SEAS, a new three-part series that explores these lethal waters, begins on Discovery Channel on Friday, June 8 at 9 PM ET/PT.

DEADLY SEAS explores violent and baleful bodies of water, and shares the stories of those who courageously face these wicked watery leviathans over and over again. Produced for Discovery Channel by Raw TV, the company behind GOLD RUSH, one of the network's top series, the three-part series includes:

· June 8 - The Bering Sea. Bordered by Alaska, Russia, and the Bering Strait, a primary danger of the Bering Sea is the treacherous cold water that can kill a man in minutes. Winter 2011 saw the worst storm in 40 years hit the frigid Bering Sea. The crew of the salvage tug Redeemer battle freezing, 20 foot waves and hurricane force winds to rescue the latest stricken vessel before she is torn apart in the unforgiving icy waters. Waging their skill and endurance against the elements, the crew of the Arctic Wind take on the Sea in a mid-winter fishing season that could net almost $500,000 of Alaskan cod. The plummeting temperatures and 23 foot wave heights make this expedition a serious gamble.

· June 15 - Gulf of Alaska. Stretching from the Alaska Peninsula and Kodiak Island to the Alexander Archipelago, the entire shoreline is a rugged combination of mountains, forest, and tidewater glaciers. It's storm season and despite perfect conditions for massive waves, two boats prepare to head out into the Gulf for a competitive fishing derby that could net $250,000 each in just 10 days. Out at the fishing grounds, the weather turns with 20 ft. waves and freezing spray. Captain Casey Eads of the Irene H is forced to run and hide for cover but Ron pushes man and machine to their limits to try to bring home a record haul and a giant payday for the Sea Barb.

· June 22 - The North Atlantic. The Atlantic Ocean occupies an "S" shaped basin extending between Africa and Europe, and the Americas. In the last 10 years the North Atlantic has claimed the lives of 165 of America's fishermen, making it America's deadliest sea. Storms here form too fast to predict, and in the shallow fishing grounds off the east coast, breaking waves can sink a boat without a trace. Despite the dangers, Captain Eddie Welch, a survivor of three hurricanes and a boat sinking, heads out on the Westport. Scallop dredging in the Atlantic is dangerous even for a veteran sea captain, and leaving from the same port is rookie captain Tim Quinn who is out to prove he can handle the Atlantic in winter and bring in $350,000 worth of scallops in just 8 days of fishing.

DEADLY SEAS is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw TV and Dimitri Doganis is Executive Producer. David Pritikin serves as Executive Producer for Discovery Channel.
