Discovery Channel Heads Out to Sea with Deadliest Catch

Television has the power to transport and engross audiences, and Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch has done just that since April 2005. The series featuring beloved captains, crews and fishing vessels in search of full pots of crab now airs globally.

Tragically, Discovery and fans lost a beloved member of the family, Captain Phil Harris, on February 9, 2010 following a stroke. Rest in peace, Captain.
