Seattle-based Screaming Flea Productions is following a family of deep-sea commercial fishers for an upcoming TLC series, Hook, Line & Sisters, premiering on December 29.

The seven-episode order, with a series finale airing on February 2, will follow the fishing family the Andersons as they make ends meet by braving the Alaskan wilds for a three-month period.

The patriarch and captain of the Memry Anne, Dean, is billed as a “grizzled sea dog” by the network. His wife, Susan, manages the family’s finances, while their daughters, 26-year-old Sierra (pictured) and 21-year-old Memry face challenges as females in a male-dominated industry.

“The family faces the same trials as any other – a father who works too much, children who want independence, and the looming threat of financial hardship,” says the network of the series. “Each fishing season they have just three months to go big or go home, putting everything on the line for a successful catch.”
