MIKE ROWE TO HOST DISCOVERY'S "BEFORE THE CATCH" AND GETS THE INSIDE SCOOP BEHIND HIT SERIES "DEADLIEST CATCH" AND THE UPCOMING SEASON 16 PREMIERE

'BEFORE THE CATCH' Premieres Tuesday, April 7 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery

(LOS ANGELES) - Discovery announced today that Mike Rowe will host BEFORE THE CATCH, a special virtual talk show airing Tuesday, April 7 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery. Rowe will talk with all of the captains from the Emmy Award-winning series DEADLIEST CATCH, returning for its 16th season on Tuesday, April 14 at 8 PM ET/PT followed by the kickoff of DEADLIEST CATCH: BLOODLINE at 9 PM ET/PT. The talk show event is produced by Original Productions and Silent Crow Arts.

"You never know what you're gonna get when you sit and chat with a Bering Sea Captain," Rowe said. "Especially a Bering Sea Captain whose been cooped up for the last three weeks in isolation. Honestly, I have no idea what to expect, but I can promise the conversation will be lively."

For the first time ever, fans will get to see Mike interact with the captains via webcam as they look ahead to the unprecedented themes and dramatic events of the upcoming season of DEADLIEST CATCH. Never shy about asking the tough questions, Mike will find out what it was really like for the Alaskan crab fleet as they faced off against their biggest rival ever this year - the Russian crab fleet. This season will bring new fishing alliances, former Catch captains returning to the fleet and a global, headline-grabbing winter storm that pounds their crab boats.

There are no topics off the table. Did Captain Sig Hansen's big plans work out as well as he hoped with his daughter Mandy in the wheelhouse? Was the fortune that Josh Harris and Casey McManus funneled into the Cornelia Marie worth it to beat the Russians to the dock? And just how often did Captain Jake Anderson butt heads with Bering Sea legend Jonathan Hillstrand? Mike will also ask Josh Harris about his father, legendary captain Phil Harris, and his recently-discovered charts that led Josh on a chase to the wild shores of Hawaii, an adventure captured on the new series DEADLIEST CATCH: BLOODLINE.

Mike and the captains will open up like never before - talking about previous seasons, looking ahead and sharing where they are right now... sheltered in place, just like the rest of America.

Discovery viewers can check out new episodes of DEADLIEST CATCH each week by downloading the Discovery GO app. Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #DeadliestCatch and follow Deadliest Catch on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the latest updates.
