Discovery Channel has set an October air date for the Original Media-produced docuseries Pacific Warriors.
The six-part series is about commercial fishermen and women who travel in kayaks and use primitive fishing poles and their bare hands to catch large fish off the coast of Hawaii.
Cameras follow them as they contend with sharks and other hazards on the job, such as being taken on “Hawaiian sleigh rides” – or being dragged by a 100-plus-pound fish 10 miles out into the ocean. The cast includes veteran fisherwoman Kimi Werner, who free dives to catch her prey.
Pacific Warriors premieres on October 23 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
