It’s that time of the summer again — “Shark Week” is about to rear its toothy head. Discovery Channel released the official schedule for 20 hours of shark-tastic programming from July 28 to Aug. 4.
For the first time ever, Discovery Channel is rolling out a scripted, feature-length film just for “Shark Week” — starring Josh Duhamel, “Capsized: Blood In The Water” tells the true story about an October 1982 shark encounter.
After each day’s specials, Rob Riggle will host “Shark After Dark,” the week’s nightly talk show. Riggle will also star in “Shark Trip: Eat. Pray. Chum” alongside his friends Adam DeVine (“Pitch Perfect”), Anthony Anderson (“black-ish”), Joel McHale (“Community”) and Damon Wayans Jr. (“New Girl”). Original programming wraps up Aug. 3, with reruns of the week’s best content featured on Aug. 4.
