DOWN (UNDER) AND DIRTY: MIKE ROWE SAYS "G'DAY" TO ALL NEW MUCK AND MAYHEM IN AUSTRALIA

DIRTY JOBS DOWN UNDER Premieres Wednesday, August 22 at 10pm e/p on Discovery

(Silver Spring, Md.) - He's left no dirt unturned Stateside; now Mike Rowe takes the show on the road trying his hand at the world's dirtiest jobs and heading to Australia for all new adventures in filth with the series premiere of DIRTY JOBS DOWN UNDER WITH MIKE ROWE Wednesday, August 22 at 10pm on Discovery.

Mike's journey begins as he travels the dangerous roads to Australia's northern coast to work with Aboriginals who have lived off the land for more than 40,000 years. It's a dirty adventure that leaves Mike speechless as he works and hunts with tribal leaders.

Later this season, Mike will journey to Adelaide, Australia, home to one of the world's most poisonous snakes- the Eastern Brown. While deadly, the snakes are protected by Australian law and cannot be killed so Mike teams up with local business "Snakes Away" where he learns how to capture a snake without getting bit. The Eastern Brown snake has no known anti-venom and can kill a grown person in less than fourteen minutes, so Mike realizes in this business there is no room for mistakes.

Next up is the Western Australia town of Darwin - ground zero for the Cane Toad epidemic. Unlike the indigenous snakes of Australia, these toads are not native to Australia and have quickly destroyed the local ecosystem. Joining with fed up locals, Mike becomes a "Toadbuster" in the war against these pesky invaders and soon learns this battle ain't pretty.

DIRTY JOBS DOWN UNDER WITH MIKE ROWE is produced by Pilgrim Film & Television. Craig Piligian, Eddie Rohwedder and Mike Rowe are executive producers. Anna Geddes is executive producer for Discovery.
