"DEADLIEST CATCH" CAPTAINS TRADE BERING SEA FOR AUSTIN AND MAKE SXSW DEBUT

- Captains Sig Hansen, Johnathan Hillstrand and Keith Colburn to Discuss 'Twitter for Tough Guys' and to Host 'Captains' Concert' -

LOS ANGELES - Social media is about transparency and breaking down barriers. But what happens when the passionate fans, captains and crews of Discovery Channel's DEADLIEST CATCH take to these platforms to extend their relationships beyond the TV screen?

Attendees of the 20th Annual SXSW Interactive Festival will find out next month when Discovery Channel makes its inaugural appearance with Deadliest Catch's Twitter for Tough Guys. Captains Sig Hansen, Johnathan Hillstrand and Keith Colburn will candidly discuss the role social media has played in their relationship with their fans. The panel will also offer an in-depth look at the role social media has played in the groundbreaking series, returning in April, and give SXSW goers an exclusive world premiere clip from the ninth season of DEADLIEST CATCH.
