‘Deadliest Catch Dungeon Cove’ premieres September 13

Newport, Oregon is one of the last remaining fishing towns along the edge of the notoriously violent ‘Graveyard of the Pacific’ that stretches from Oregon to British Columbia. Here, generations of Dungeness crab fishermen and their families sacrifice everything that they have, including life itself, to carve an existence from the sea. From Original Productions, creators of the multiple Emmy Award-winning series DEADLIEST CATCH, comes DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE,  premiering Tuesday, September 13 at 9 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel.

Thousands of vessels and lives have been lost while battling the seas in what’s considered the deadliest commercial fishery in the world. The Oregon coast bursts with sea life, but also a labyrinth of sandbars and currents. DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE goes on board the vessels that navigate this stretch of sea that churns up massive waves and unpredictable conditions. But what is it like for those left behind? DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE will also explore the lives of the families themselves – many of whom have called the village home for generations.  Every year fishermen are lost to the turbulent waters, but the families of Newport knowingly bear that burden as they fight to keep the legacy of their town alive.

Every year, the boats line up and take off – signaling the start of Dungeness crab season. Millions of dollars are up for grab in one of the last derby-style fisheries in the world, where it pays to be the fastest boat on the crab, and the first boat back to the dock to sell. But this Wild West fishing style comes at a steep price. The sea here gives life, and takes it, in equal measure.

DEADLIEST CATCH: DUNGEON COVE is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions with Philip D. Segal, Sarah Whalen and John Gray as Executive Producers and Johnny Beechler as Showrunner. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Boyle is Executive Producer.
