JOSH GATES TO HOST SPECIAL SHARK-THEMED EPISODES OF HIT VIRTUAL TALK-SHOW "JOSH GATES TONIGHT" DURING SHARK WEEK 2020 ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL

(Los Angeles) - Ardent explorer and adventurer, Josh Gates, has traversed the globe investigating history's greatest legends and mysteries. For the past three months, Gates' virtual talk-show JOSH GATES TONIGHT has brought viewers along for the journey as he's been exploring the world (often without leaving the house). Now, he's diving deeper than ever before and swimming across screens (while still social distancing) with five nights of special shark-themed episodes of JOSH GATES TONIGHT airing Sunday, August 9 - Thursday, August 13 at 11:00 PM ET/PT on Discovery.

Following Discovery Channel's thrilling SHARK WEEK 2020 programming, Gates will be joined virtually by celebrity guests and shark experts each night to highlight and explore some of the most exciting, shocking, and fintastic moments from SHARK WEEK 2020. Gates also has shark adventures of his own as he tests the tiger-shark infested waters at the Georgia Aquarium and becomes one of the first people to dive into their new shark exhibit, one of the largest in the world. The adventure continues as he descends into the aquarium's 6.3 million-gallon Ocean Voyager tank and swims alongside thousands of aquatic species, including massive whale sharks.

In addition to his shark adventures and interviewing celebrity guests, Gates will introduce viewers to Rick Chomp, a shark (puppet) with some rough edges; share some good news, all shark related, of course, and even makes a splash in the music world as he attempts to unleash a new song even more maddeningly catchy than Baby Shark.
