Celebrate ‘Shark Week’ at Discovery Channel

/ 09:08 PM November 13, 2012

MANILA, Philippines – Shark Week returns to Asia-Pacific this November with six all-new shark-filled specials that will place you too close for comfort to the jaw-dropping action.

Watch shark experts embark on a mission for the ultimate close-up with a legendary 14-foot great white. Take a tour of the mysterious underwater world in Bahamas.

Witness the true story of two war heroes who survived shark-infested waters. Relive hair-raising situations when sharks misidentify humans as prey and mark SHARK WEEK with none other than MYTHBUSTER’S Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman as they explore the absolute truth to shark myths. All this and more, daily, for one whole week at 9:00 p.m., beginning November 12. Encores daily at 12:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.


Picking up where 2011’s Emmy®-nominated Ultimate Air Jaws left off, shark expert Chris Fallows and legendary natural history producer Jeff Kurr embark on a quest to learn more about the great white sharks of Seal Island, South Africa – and one shark in particular, Colossus, in Air Jaws Apocalypse.

Kurr and his team push the envelope even further with new hair raising encounters… even if it means risking their lives for the ultimate close-up with the now legendary 14-foot great white. What they discover in this year-long filming expedition is a true scientific breakthrough: dozens of great whites clustered in shallow water, feeding on smaller sharks and rays — with Colossus dominating the grounds and nearly eating the camera.

Also new this year: relive some of the scariest, funniest and most memorable moments in SHARK WEEK’S 25 Best Bites. YouTube celebrity Philip DeFranco takes viewers on a fast-paced ride through all of SHARK WEEK’s greatest hits, including going “Into the Shark Bite,” cavorting with “Sharks After Dark,” living through a “Sharkbite Summer” and learning how to avoid a “Great White Appetite.”

And go behind the scenes to see the best bites in SHARK WEEK’S history. Get set to explore the marvels of Shark City with Chief Shark Officer Andy Samberg as he takes us on a tour of a mysterious underwater world tucked in the protected waters of the Bahamas, where it’s shark-eat-shark, and shark-eat-pretty much everything else too.

Watch the inspiring true story of two war heroes who survived shark-infested waters in Adrift: 47 Days with Sharks.   During a routine search and rescue mission over the Pacific in World War II, an American plane crashed into shark-infested waters.

This is the inspiring story of how Russell ‘Phil’ Phillips and Louis Zamperini survived a record-breaking 47 days adrift on a life raft in the Pacific Ocean at the height of World War II.

This ambitious drama documentary reconstructs their ordeal in precise detail, showing how they managed to overcome hunger by catching and eating seabirds, and then battling with and killing the sharks that threw themselves into their raft. But when they finally did reach land, it was only the beginning of their troubles. What happened to these men is one of the greatest tests of faith, will and endurance of our time.

Join Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from MYTHBUSTERS as they count down their top 25 shark myths of all time and reveal the No. 1 myth that will literally blow people away in MythBusters’ Jawsome Shark Special. Together, they’ve chosen the stories that make the countdown and what secrets to reveal.


It’s chock full of secret snippets, of insider info, behind the scenes gems and mythical ways to attract and repel these fearsome fish.  Who knew that Jamie once tried to make a shark remote controlled? Add in some famous footage of Grant trying to get eaten by swimming in a panic and you’ve got all the ingredients for a truly adventurous adventure. Get ready to go back in the water as the MYTHBUSTERS best shark moments are unleashed!

In Shark Fight, relive the harrowing moments when all went wrong and sharks mistook humans for prey. Meet the shark survivors who have been through the ultimate nightmare: hand-to-jaw combat against the ocean’s apex predators, losing limbs and barely escaping with their lives.

Yet even after the attacks, they’re still fighting, but what for will surprise you. Amazingly, dozens of shark attack victims around the world have devoted their lives to saving their attackers. They have turned what could have been tragedy into their life’s mission, becoming some of the most powerful shark advocates on the planet. Hear their stories of resilience and triumph as they fight what they consider the ultimate battle: saving sharks and our oceans.

Celebrate SHARK WEEK with a jaw-dropping look back at the greatest breaches, brushes, and bites with the ocean’s apex predator.
