Discovery Makes a Splash with New Slate

Deadliest Catch

Get your survival gear ready because Discovery will be exploring new terrain with several "how will they ever get themselves out of that snowy ravine/swamp/cave with only a toothpick and dental floss?" docudramas and a scripted TV movie.

The network has greenlighted at least seven new projects, including several from top docudrama pros Thom Beers and Craig Piligian, in order to increase its number of original programming hours, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

First is But Wait ... There's More, executive produced by Beers, which follows longform ad salesmen Billy Mays and Anthony "Sully" Sullivan as they check out quirky new products and craft pitches and take to the airwaves to sell their wares.

Yes, the boat was assaulted by waves last October. And yes, the boat was flooded... a week prior. According to a production outline obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, extra footage may have been shot to pastiche the two events into one — especially when you factor in that there are exterior shots (shot by a second craft) of The Wizard being "flooded," though the boat was in fact alone at the time of the actual incident. ( Watch video of the sequence here.) The doc cited by the trade specifically says, "Combine Wizard leak story on Sept. 26 with The Wizard being hit by a big wave on Oct. 1 and Oct. 2.

NBC Reels in Deadliest Catch Creator for Reality Block

NBC has inked a deal with Thom Beers (creator of cable's Ice Road Truckers and Deadliest Catch) and producing partners Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun to develop a three-hour block of action-adventure/reality programming.

The consensus is that the block would air Friday or Saturday, or perhaps even Sunday following football. read more
