WHO WILL FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO BE CALLED A LEGEND? AN ALL NEW 60-DAY ‘NAKED AND AFRAID XL’ CHALLENGE
PREMIERES APRIL 25 ON DISCOVERY
NEW YORK – April 13, 2021 – For the past six seasons of NAKED AND AFRAID XL, all-star survivalists have conquered extreme environments with grueling climates and impossible challenges where others have failed. Now, the ultimate test of survival is taken to new extremes, and 12 legends of the 40-day challenges return to test themselves like never before. In an all new season of NAKED AND AFRAID XL, these all-star survivalists must raise the bar in both skill and innovation as they take on the deadly swamps of Louisiana for an epic, never-before-attempted 60-day challenge. As seasons change, winter rolls over the swamp and dangers mount, who will fight for the right to become a LEGEND?

NAKED AND AFRAID XL returns for an all new season Sunday, April 25 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery. In addition to watching NAKED AND AFRAID: XL on Discovery, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #NakedandAfraid and following Naked and Afraid on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

It’s easy to be the Alpha when you’re the only hunter and your partners are content building the fires, but when three big dogs are forced to share a shelter, the result is a clash of titans. Accustomed to taking the lead, never being questioned, and walking out on top, these “legends” vow to go big or go hungry but can they check their egos and survive the swamp for 60 days?
This season, the survivalists vying to become ‘legends’ include:
Sarah Danser
Max Djenohan
Gary Golding
Steven Lee Hall, Jr.
Amber Hargrove
Ryan Holt
Lacey Jones
Rylie Parlett
EJ Snyder
Matt Wright
Jeff Zausch
Suzanne Zeta
Set across a massive 7,000 acres in Louisiana’s infamous Atchafalaya Basin, the murky waters and impenetrable brush are lurking with predators including territorial, 10-foot alligators and North America’s only venomous water snake, the cottonmouth. In addition to the threats they can see, the water is teeming with microscopic parasites that can burrow under the skin and create infections that send would-be legends home.

This season of XL presents hazards and hardships only the toughest survivalists in the world can endure but also opportunities to showcase their elite skills. The survivalists will be able to hunt on land and water. The best will be the top of the food-chain but the rest will be in danger at every turn. While some were able to tough it out and make it through their 21-day or even 40-day challenges, to make it the 60 days in the punishing Bayou, survivalists will have to hunt, fish and gather every day if they want to earn the title of Legend.

Surviving first in four separate camps before merging to complete the challenge together, these all-stars will constantly be up against a ticking clock and an environment that’s testing them at every turn. Inserted into summer-like heat, they’re immediately at risk of dehydration and swarmed by unrelenting mosquitoes. As the weather turns, relentless rainstorms and swamp cold put them at risk for hypothermia. And as winter settles over the bayou, the temperatures plummet to near-freezing and their primary food sources of snakes and alligators hibernate. These all-stars will be pushed like never before as even the best of the best struggle to cement their legacies as legends.

NAKED AND AFRAID XL is produced for Discovery and by Renegade 83, an eOne company; David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, David Story and David Kirkwood are executive producers. Shauna Stoddard and Jim Morton are co-executive producers. For Discovery, Michael Gara is executive producer and Greg Wolf is coordinating producer.

BERING SEA GOLD RETURNS FOR ITS MILESTONE 10TH YEAR ON APRIL 30





BERING SEA GOLD RETURNS FOR ITS MILESTONE 10TH YEAR ON APRIL 30
WITH NEW CLAIMS, BIGGER STAKES AND MORE FAMILIAR FACES

Zeke Tenhoff and Steve Riedel rejoin the fleet in Nome, Alaska in hopes of staking their claim
on the Bering Sea once again

(Los Angeles, CA) Nome, Alaska has been stirring up a summer mining season no one can pass up. This season, gold prices are on track to reach an all-time high and with this new opportunity comes new challenges. Owning a claim is more vital now than ever as it’s the only way to guarantee a place to mine. Nome’s untamed roots are reestablished as the mining fleet among the competition and returning familiar faces battle in a free-for-all to claim the richest grounds on the Bering Sea. Find out who’s staking their claim in an all-new season of BERING SEA GOLD premiering on Friday, April 30 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery and streaming on discovery+.

With the biggest shakeup Nome has seen in over 100 years, seasoned miners and average joes alike are on the hunt for the biggest money-making claims. Shawn Pomrenke, former “Mr. Gold,” returns with a new ally in mind — rival Dave Young of Arctic Sea Mining. Shawn’s plan? To mine the most gold ever in a single season while reconstructing the Myrtle Irene to launch on the infamous and most sought-after Tomcod claim. With even higher hopes to take over his family’s inland mine and buy out his dad Steve Pomrenke, Shawn is willing to risk it all–for a second time, in the hopes of achieving the most profitable pay streak he’s ever had.

Captain Kris Kelly has his own eyes on the prize, and surprisingly, a new mining ground. He’s taking the most ambitious chance of his mining career by leading the largest vessel he’s ever captained, where no miner has ventured before, in order to live and work off of the coast of the remote town of Elim. It’s Kris’ most unpredictable season yet as he lands himself on a new excavator dredge and dodges bullets from every direction while he chases gold…literally. Kris will also share his “exclusive” mining knowledge with viewers in “Kris Kelly’s Secret Guide to Mining” featured in each episode.

But it’s the return of rogue mastermind Zeke Tenhoff and Emily’s mercurial father Steve Riedel that really stirs up the already tumultuous Bering Sea. Zeke focuses on creating what he thinks will be a competitive advantage — a first-of-its-kind sailboat dredge. This type of dredge will enable him to access further and deeper claims, stay overnight on the dredge, and withstand storms that would otherwise push other dredges back to the harbor. The mad scientist doesn’t return alone; he’s got a rockstar crew with him including brother Sam Tenhoff and his bassist Raven. Zeke may have taken a break from the Bering Sea, but nothing will stop him from pursuing its gold. All the while, Steve Riedel returns ready to start from the ground up to assemble a mining rig and secure a top-notch claim of his own. He’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen. Along the way, Steve Riedel will dig into the history of the remote gold-struck town where he shares with viewers the “Weird Wild Wonderful World of Nome” in nearly every episode.

As the battlefield of Nome continues to grow, Emily Riedel must pivot her strategy and plan for a new idea of success. She puts aside her plans to operate a second dredge and dives into the claim war while recruiting Nome’s top gold divers to establish her elite team. Meanwhile, Vernon Adkison gambles all he’s got for one of the richest claims on the Bering Sea — Claim 56. With his go-to team all unavailable, he must resort to finding a brand-new crew. Desperation leads him to a possible collaboration with Steve Riedel, who Vernon has fought and fired multiple times throughout the years.

The wild west of mining is back with a new gold rush right at home in Nome, Alaska. With the richest claims up for grabs, these miners are willing to risk it all for the ultimate pay off.

JOSH GATES’ EXPLORATIONS TAKE HIM BACK IN THE FIELD AS EPIC NIGHTS OF ADVENTURE





JOSH GATES’ EXPLORATIONS TAKE HIM BACK IN THE FIELD AS EPIC NIGHTS OF ADVENTURE EVERY WEDNESDAY ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL RETURN APRIL 14

(Los Angeles) – Adventurer and avid explorer Josh Gates has spent his career traversing the globe investigating history’s greatest legends and mysteries. Now, America’s most adventurous talk-show host is getting out from behind the desk and is once again back in the field for a hands-on, heart-pounding investigation as Discovery’s Adventure Wednesday lineup returns with all-new episodes of JOSH GATES TONIGHT and EXPEDITION X. Episodes of both series will be available to watch on Discovery Channel and stream on discovery+.

Beginning, Wednesday, April 14 at 9PM ET/PT, audiences can join Josh as he breaks out of lockdown to join his team of scientist Phil Torres and paranormal researcher Jessica Chobot in the season premiere of EXPEDITION X, airing at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery+ and Discovery Channel. Then, Josh welcomes celebrity guests, newsmakers, and experts to his expedition headquarters for the groundbreaking talk show JOSH GATES TONIGHT at 10PM ET/PT.

In one of the most exciting EXPEDITION X investigations yet, Josh ventures into the field to join his dynamic duo as they hunt the legendary Beast of Bray Road across rural Wisconsin. And throughout the new season, Jessica and Phil will continue to tackle the strangest mysteries and legends from around the country. Whether it’s exploring the waters surrounding “UFO Island” just off the coast of California, chasing the legend of a seven foot tall humanoid creature in the eerily-named Ape Canyon, or ghost hunting on an abandoned canal rumored to be haunted by soldiers slaughtered in the Civil War, the Expedition X team has the truth in its sights. Working with eyewitnesses and experts, and deploying a cutting-edge toolbox of high-tech equipment, Phil and Jess shed new light on cases that have confounded, frightened, and fascinated people for generations.

Then, Josh Gates returns to Expedition HQ for the talk show with a Discovery twist, JOSH GATES TONIGHT. A unique cocktail of celebrity guests, exciting excursions into the field, and Josh’s patented brand of comedy. In this all-new run of all-new episodes, he’ll be joined by luminaries Christopher Lloyd, Kevin Bacon, Craig Robinson, Gabriel Iglesias, Haley Joel Osment, Giancarlo Esposito and Larry the Cable Guy, and many more. Josh also continues adventuring as only he can – attending a race car academy, becoming a Hollywood stunt man for a day, and going on a ghost hunt through LA with Jack Osborne…oh, and did we mention the time traveling?

(LOS ANGELES) – Discovery announced it has begun production on the fan-favorite series DIRTY JOBS. Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, will return to the network to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible. The series will premiere later this year on Discovery.

“Every now and then, the headlines catch up to a TV show and make it relevant in ways that no one imagined. With essential work in the news, it’s impossible not to think of Dirty Jobs, and for the last year, people have asked me every day if the show would make a comeback. Today, I’m happy to say the answer is yes. In other words, just when I thought I was out, they sucked me back in!” Mike Rowe said.

The upcoming season of DIRTY JOBS finds Mike getting back to work and getting his hands even dirtier than before – heading deep in the southern bayous to high up in America’s remote Badlands. The dirtier the job, the better as Mike tackles each job with his typical candid, no non-sense take and wry sense of humor.

Mike plans to lend a hand to those on the frontlines – protecting the nation from invasions, even if it involves glowing scorpions and giant iguanas. The series will also follow Mike as he helps protect Rocky Mountain motorists from cliffside tree disasters and joins first responders as they hone their abilities on the most life-like medial emergency dummies in the world.

Each episode will showcase the unsung heroes and the communities that rely on these essential jobs. The popular franchise, which first aired on Discovery from 2005 to 2013 and rebooted last summer as a limited series (DIRTY JOBS: ROW’D TRIP), will show Mike back in action as he showcases the unsung heroes of this country. It’s time to get dirty – again!

DEADLIEST CATCH Returns For its Landmark 17th Season





THE WORLD IN TURMOIL, LEGENDARY ‘DEADLIEST CATCH’ CAPTAINS FIGHT TO SAVE THE FISHERY AND THE AMERICAN DREAM

DEADLIEST CATCH Returns For its Landmark 17th Season in a Year Where Nothing Seems Normal

discovery+ to Stream First Episode on Friday, March 19, Ahead of Season Premiere on Tuesday, April 20 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery

(LOS ANGELES) – In the wake of the global pandemic, half the crab boats of the Bering Sea fleet are tied up in Seattle. Now an existential threat faces the fishermen who make the long-haul trip to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, for the 2021 Crab season – a potential closure of the entire fishery. Crabbing isn’t just a way of life for the captains and their crew. This year, it’s a fight for the industry’s survival. If they’re going to make it work, the fleet will need to make sacrifices and band together across lines – even with long-sworn enemies. Their livelihood depends on it or they could potentially face the end of their careers. DEADLIEST CATCH returns with a season like no other before, streaming exclusively first on Friday, March 19 on discovery+, ahead of the season premiere airing Tuesday, April 20 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery.

It’s been a tough year for everyone, especially for the crabbing fleet in Alaska. Due to government-imposed lockdowns, Alaska Department of Fish and Game weren’t able to conduct their summer crab survey. Meaning this year, the captains will be fishing blind with no charts or guidance on where to find crab on the grounds – making an already challenging season even more difficult. It doesn’t take long for the captains to realize that they can’t start this season without a new approach.

Spearheading their defense is Captain Sig Hansen from the F/V Northwestern – who proposes a two-pronged plan to save the fishery. First, Sig needs someone who isn’t afraid to stick his neck out. And there is only one person that comes to mind – his good friend and legendary crabber Johnathan Hillstrand.

Johnathan would bring a massive operation, as commander of the F/V Time Bandit, and could provide a lifeline to help catch the fleet’s towering 5-million-pound fall season quota. But will Johnathan agree to come out of retirement? And leave behind everything and everyone he loves during such difficult times?
Sig’s second strategy goes against everything the old-time crabbers have ever done before – working together as a pack. It’s a huge risk and requires honesty and cooperation from everyone. But can the captains put the good of the fleet ahead of their own interests? Some of them have their doubts.

Just days ahead of the season launch, Captain Keith Colburn of the F/V Wizard has his own set of problems. His WW2-era boat is in need of maintenance, and the captain desperately needs a fruitful season to pay for his upcoming shipyard. Enter Captain Scott Campbell Jr. of the F/V Lady Alaska. Scott believes he has secret intel on where to find crab. Scott hatches a plan to share his intel with longtime rival Keith in exchange for quota. However, when he approaches him, things don’t go exactly as Scott had hoped.

On the F/V Saga, Captain Jake Anderson is back and aiming to secure more quota. But will this young captain be able to pull off a successful season when he’s come up empty in the past? Or will F/V Northwestern’s reserve captain, Mandy Hansen, enlist Jake in her own plan to tank their combined share of the total crab quota?

Also returning this year are Captains Josh Harris and Casey McManus of the F/V Cornelia Marie. This year, they struggled to find a strong crew and must call upon their business partner Jeff Silva from Hawaii to join them. Though Jeff proves that he puts the green in greenhorn shortly after setting sail.
Finally, rounding out the fleet this year is Captain Wild Bill and the F/V Summer Bay. His crew has faced incredible loss this past year including the passing of deckhand Mahlon Reyes, who suffered a deadly heart attack at the young age of 38 years old. Bill and his crew honor Mahlon’s memory by giving him a proper fisherman’s burial at sea before setting off on the new crabbing season. But just as they attempt to leave the dock, crew member Nick McGlashan suddenly falls ill with a fever. Will Bill even be able to leave in time? Or will he be out of the fishing game for good this season as his crew must isolate from each other?

Forty-foot waves, government shutdowns, global pandemics and hurricane force winds are just a few reasons that no season is ever the same. DEADLIEST CATCH returns for its 17th season facing even more challenges than ever before. Will the legends step it up? Or will the pandemic and its aftermath decimate the crabbing industry for good, like so many other businesses?

After pandemic travel restrictions make Dave’s plans of mining in Alaska impossible, Team Turin finally sets up their operation in Colorado. Armed with an all-new state-of-the-art wash plant, they begin work on a lost mine with massive gold potential. With gold prices reaching all-time highs, Dave’s dream of achieving financial security and total freedom seems just in reach until tragedy strikes the gold claim.

With the Rocky Mountain summer heat on their backs, Team Turin’s detective work leads them to legendary ‘main channel’ gold the Colorado oldtimers missed. They quickly face local resistance and the toughest ground they’ve ever mined, so the crew must dig deeper than ever before. Then, by looking to the lessons from local history, they soon begin to strike big hauls of gold. But the success turns bittersweet when gold room operator Jesse Goins suddenly passes away. Devastated at the loss of their mining brother, the team take time out to mourn. But Team Turin won’t be denied, and they return to work, on a mission to dedicate the season to Jesse and his share of the gold to his family. And after Dave makes a game-changing pivot, the crew pushes on towards a record-breaking season.

This season of GOLD RUSH: DAVE TURIN’S LOST MINE, Dave and his team will summon ingenuity, willpower, and creativity to tackle the challenge of mining in an unfamiliar location. In a time of uncertainty, Dave and team will have to risk it all to come away with a life-changing haul.
