DISCOVERY'S "DEADLIEST CATCH" ENTERS LANDMARK 10TH SEASON WITH LEGACIES BOTH OLD AND NEW; EPIC DANGER; AND MOUNTING PRESSURE BROUGHT ON BY GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

New Season Kicks off Tuesday, April 22 at 9 PM E/P on Discovery Channel

(Los Angeles, Calif.) - While the wary veteran skippers cement their legacies on the Bering Sea, the young guns begin to create their own this season... But they better be careful what they wish for. From Original Productions, the multiple Emmy Award-winning series DEADLIEST CATCH kicks off its landmark 10th season at 9 PM E/P, Tuesday, April 22 on Discovery Channel.

The late Capt. Phil Harris brought notoriety and respect to the industry and to the fishermen who risk their lives in one of the most dangerous jobs around. This season proves to be a momentous one for Phil's son, Josh Harris, who is back as captain and owner of his father's boat the Cornelia Marie. But will he be able to continue his dad's legacy and create one of his own?

There are also big changes on the horizon for the F/V Northwestern. Embarking on her right of passage, Sig Hansen's 18-year-old daughter Mandy joins the ranks as deckhand. In a profession typically dominated by men, Mandy has a lot to prove. But can Sig treat her just like one of the crew? Or will his tendency to over protect get in her way of success?

In the first episode, opening season comes and goes as the captains have been grounded by of all things -- politics. For the first time in nearly two decades, a government shutdown brings Washington, D.C., to a screeching halt with its far-reaching effects going well beyond the Beltway.

Eventually the shutdown ends, but it's just the beginning for the captains. Up against a ticking clock of a shortened season, a late start means greater competition than ever before. With a deadline to offload looming and millions of dollars on the line, the captains must lay down the hammer and fish through treacherous weather in hopes of catching their crab on time. With less time and their income at stake, how much can they push their crews before major injury - or even death - strikes?

With the stakes greater than ever, it isn't long before drama hits the Bering Sea. A boat goes up in flames; another runs aground while many more earn record-breaking profits. When the smoke clears, one captain finds himself in rehab and another wakes up in a hospital. Forty-foot waves, hurricane force winds, heavy-machinery and massive icebergs are just a few reasons that no season is ever the same on DEADLIEST CATCH. Surrounded by death and a multitude of injuries these brave men struggle to return from man's oldest journey alive.

To catch up on all the drama, Discovery will air a special recap episode of DEADLIEST CATCH beginning at 9 PM on Tuesday, April 15. Also returning this season is "The Bait," a series of one-hour pre-game shows, beginning at 8 PM E/P on April 22. "The Bait" will give an inside look at the episode ahead from the captains - where they'll talk fishing, drama and what to expect on that night's episode of DEADLIEST CATCH.

DEADLIEST CATCH is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions, a Fremantle Media company. For Original Productions, Executive Producers are Thom Beers, Jeff Conroy and John Gray. Co-Executive Producer is R. Decker Watson, Jr. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producer is David Pritikin.
