DESCRIPTION: (from Discovery's press release, July 2014) For hundreds of years, the marshes of Louisiana have been plagued by mysterious creatures intent on causing mass destruction. Some believe that these creatures are ones of mythical ancestry. Others believe there are more scientific explanations for the increased levels of destruction in the area over the years. Whose theories will be proven true? Featuring some familiar faces from SHARK WEEK 2013's successful special VOODOO SHARKS, Discovery Channel ventures deep into the bayou to explore all possible scenarios in its all new program, BEASTS OF THE BAYOU, premiering on July 10 at 10 PM ET/PT. Captain Blimp Cheramie, his first mate, Eric, and his nephew, Nathan, search through the marshes of Louisiana, on the hunt for the legendary creatures that are rumored to haunt the thousands of square miles of swampland around their homes. Stories of the creatures' origins are those of legend, passed down from generation to generation with little proof of their validity... for now. All the while, teams of scientists are seeking alternative explanations for the sightings and stories that have plagued this region for so many years.
