‘Shark Week in a Weekend’ Takes A Bite Out of Discovery Channel’s Line-Up

If you are anxiously awaiting the summer months, and all that the hottest season brings with it, the Discovery Channel is going to tease you this weekend with their Shark Week in a Weekend schedule.  The special event will eat up all of Discovery’s previously planned programming, running all day Saturday (starting at 9:00 am ET) through Sunday (until 8:00 pm ET).

According to the official press release, “Shark Week, television’s longest-running, and most anticipated summer event will swim onto screens for a special weekend marathon featuring a line-up of fan-favorite episodes. The pop culture phenomenon will take viewers to oceans around the world with a team of renowned marine biologists and science institutions to deliver groundbreaking shark stories incorporating innovative research technology and revealing compelling insight into the mysterious world of sharks. From the coast of South Africa to islands in the Bahamas, Shark Week in a Weekend will bring the world to viewers at home while Shark Week talent and scientists take on some of the most daring shark experiments ever attempted.”

The event also includes the Discovery Channel’s first scripted film, Capsized: Blood in the Water, which is “…based on the harrowing true story of an October 1982 shark encounter starring Josh Duhamel, Tyler Blackburn, Beau Garrett, Rebekah Graf, and Josh Close.”
