American cable net National Geographic Channel is to launch its first live talk show, Reel Talk Live, on June 8, following the season three finale of Wicked Tuna (pictured).

Airing at 10 p.m. EST (and tape delayed on the West Coast), the talks show will see captains and crewmen join host sports radio host Mike Salk before a live audience to “answer fan questions, reveal behind-the-scenes scoop and look ahead to the future of the successful Wicked Tuna franchise,” according to the network.

Viewers will be able to submit questions via Facebook and Twitter.

Wicked Tuna and Reel Talk Live are produced for NGC by Pilgrim Studios. The executive producers are Craig Piligian and Mike Nichols for the prodco, and Robert Palumbo for the network.
