‘Shark Week’ kicks off June 26, check out the schedule

WRATH OF A GREAT WHITE SERIAL KILLER – Airing Tuesday, June 28 at 9PM ET/PT

A newcomer has taken residence in the waters of the Pacific Northwest… the great white shark. Shark expert Ralph Collier and Brandon McMillian seek answers to the main questions in this case – why are great white sharks traveling so far north and why are these encounters focused on this one particular place?

AIR JAWS: NIGHT STALKER – Airing Tuesday, June 28 at 10PM ET/PT

Famed shark photographer Chris Fallows embarks on his 8th Air Jaws adventure with shark expert Jeff Kurr and shark biologist Neil Hammerschlag as they discover how great white sharks hunt in total darkness. Narrated by Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”), it turns out that great whites can hunt effectively with or without any sun or moonlight – but how do they do that?

DEADLIEST SHARK – Airing Wednesday, June 29 at 9PM ET/PT

Using cutting-edge research and thrilling historical evidence, Dr. Michael Domeier and Dr. Barry Bruce go looking for rare oceanic white tip sharks, to see if the species deserve the reputation as the “World’s Deadliest Shark.” History says they are – and when the scientists dive in the Bahamas and off Hawaii, they’re spooked by this very dangerous shark.

SHARKS VS. DOLPHINS: FACE OFF – Airing Wednesday, June 29 at 10PM ET/PT

Sharks and dolphins have shared the ocean for ages, but only recently, scientists have begun to understand the true nature of the relationship between these two masters of the sea. It’s hostile, and dangerous, mainly for dolphins.  Dolphins would rather eat fish and swim with humans; sharks would rather eat dolphins and anything they can sink their teeth into.  Dr. Mike Heithaus and his team bring new research that may solve why sharks attack dolphins far more than we ever knew.

NUCLEAR SHARKS – Airing Thursday, June 30 at 9PM ET/PT

Grandson to legendary underwater explorer and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau, Philippe Cousteau, and his wife Ashlan Gorse Cousteau travel with marine biologist Luke Tipple to Bikini Atoll to explore a marine environment once destroyed by nuclear testing during the Cold War. The nuclear devices detonated across the atoll vaporized two islands and destroyed everything living.  Today, nature has proved resilient and restored the marine ecosystem, re-populating the atoll with reef sharks.   But since reef sharks are considered non-migratory, where did they come from?  

JUNGLE SHARK – Airing Thursday, June 30 at 10PM ET/PT

Marine biologist Dr. Craig O’Connell and Andy Casagrande travel up the Serena River in the rainforests of Costa Rica to try and find out why young bull sharks swim up the river, and how they avoid the 12-14’ American crocodiles living there.  O’Connell deduces the sharks smell the crocs and creates a first-of-its-kind croc scent-based bull shark repellant – and SHARK WEEK reveals a possible important discovery that could save human lives.
