THIS JANUARY, HEAD DOWN SOUTH WITH DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S NEW LOUISIANA BAYOU BASED SERIES "RAGIN' CAJUNS"

(New York, NY) Welcome to Venice, Louisiana -- Population: 2,000. Discovery Channel's brand new series RAGIN' CAJUNS premiering on Tuesday, January 17th at 10pm ET/PT, takes a trip down the Mississippi deep into the Louisiana Bayou for the start of their 3-month long white shrimp season. It may sound like fun in the sun, but life in the bayou ain't no day at the beach.

Venice once was a thriving southern paradise, but just when these Bayou boys thought they had dug themselves out of the devastating hole that Hurricane Katrina created back in 2005, the oil spill of 2010 set them into another tailspin. Now the shrimping boats aren't the only things struggling to stay afloat. If they can't make it this season, their way of life and town may cease to exist.

Feeling sorry for themselves, however, has never been an option. Between bar fights and boat fights, shrimping for food and scrimping for cash, these RAGIN' CAJUNS work hard and play even harder.

Meet the RAGIN' CAJUNS:

· BLIMP, a 400 lb. shrimping rock star with a big heart and a bigger case of bad luck

· ACY COOPER, Cooper patriarch who comes from a long line of LA coast shrimpers

· TRAE COOPER, Acy's son and a greenhorn captain

· DAR DAR, Acy's daughter's long term boyfriend who has yet to agree to marry her

· KIP MARQUIZE, a renegade captain who will try anything to succeed

· WAYLON BURRIS, the "big dog" of shrimping with a tricked out boat

These larger-than-life, blue collar guys are on a mission to prove that even if you're down on your luck with an uncertain future, a bit of hard work, patience and ingenuity can go a long way. When life gives you lemons, cut them up and make shrimp cocktail.

RAGIN' CAJUNS is produced for Discovery Channel by Gurney Productions. Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney are executive producers for Gurney Productions, and French Horwitz is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
