STAMFORD, Conn. - August 5, 2014 - NBCSN presents Fish Mavericks, a new one-hour outdoor fishing show from the producer of breakout hit Duck Dynasty. The show centers on captain Dave Schunke and his crew aboard Fish Circus as they travel to compete in fishing tournaments. Each week, the team of comedic characters, including two sets of brothers, will take on the competition and the fish to catch a winning shark. The six-part series premieres tomorrow, Wednesday, August 6, at 10 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Episodes 2 through 4 will air on consecutive Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET through August 27, with Episodes 5 and 6 airing back-to-back on September 3 at 10 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET, respectively.

"We're excited to bring Fish Mavericks to our growing portfolio of original programming," said Ron Wechsler, Vice President, Original Programming and Entertainment, NBC Sports Group. "The unique personalities of the Fish Circus crew are sure to entertain our NBCSN audience."

"Fish Mavericks shows it like it really is, the work, the tears, the laughs, the struggles, the bad weather, the monster fish and the small," said Scott Gurney, co-founder of Gurney Productions. "This group of friends is like family - traveling the country trying to win big bucks in some of America's biggest tournaments." The documentary-reality series follows the five members of the Fish Circus team:

· Dave Schunke - As the captain of Fish Circus, Shunke fishes over 15 major tournaments from Florida to Massachusetts. Shunke, who has been fishing his entire life, has taken his craft to freshwater, salt water and his true love, offshore canyon fishing.

· Jerry and Jon Harris - Brothers Jerry and John Harris, both United States Navy veterans, have been fishing together for almost 50 years. The opinionated pair hails from Virginia.

· Robb and Chris Pami - New Jersey natives and brothers Robb and Chris Pami taught themselves how to fish fresh water fish growing up, lending their skills to salt water aboard Fish Circus. The brothers, known for their pranks, are owners of a family construction business.
