Discovery Channel To Air Shark Week in August

Mark your calendars for this year’s Shark Week on The Discovery Channel! The Discovery Channel plans on celebrating the 15th anniversary of Shark Week by airing more premiere shows than ever before! In addition, this year’s Celebrity Shark Week will feature never before granted access for celebrities to dive with host Nigel Marven in either the waters of the Bahamas or South Africa in once in a lifetime opportunities to learn more about, and get up close and personal with, these diverse denizens of the deep, and meet people on the forefront of shark studies. Be sure not to miss some of your favorite celebrities as they participate in a variety of shark activities ranging from hypnotizing sharks to swimming and hand-feeding in segments airing around six brand new programs.

This year’s premieres range from Great White Attack: A True Story to Wild Battlefields: Shark City, a 60-minute shark experience that includes never-before-seen footage of shark search patterns and feeding strategies and more. At the very least we hope you and all your friends will tune-in to Celebrity Shark Week on Discovery Channel, Sunday, August 11 through Friday, August 16, 2002 (with a special seven-hour encore on the afternoon of Sunday, August 18).

Be sure to check your local listings for times and channel for this television event.
