National Geographic's SHARKFEST Full Season Schedule Announced - What's On Disney Plus
Posted: 16 Jun 2020 07:19 AM PDT
National Geographic has announced details on its upcoming "SHARKFEST", which will be coming to National Geographic and Nat Geo WILD channels, with five full weeks of action-packed shark programming with 17 original premieres and the best shark programming from the networks' massive library as part of its biggest-ever shark spectacular. Showcasing the ocean's greatest competitors in their natural habitat, the eighth annual event begins Sunday, July 12th, on National Geographic, followed by two weeks of content on Nat Geo WILD, beginning Sunday, August 2nd. Hopefully most of this Shark content will be added to Disney+ once its finished its initial run on those channels.
As the network's summer MVP, SHARKFEST always dominates its opponents with informative, innovative shows highlighting shark research and conservation. But each summer, it also hits a grand slam with entertaining, heart-pounding content that makes a weeklong event look like a minnow. This season's starting lineup for SHARKFEST on Nat Geo includes the following:
"For the past eight years, Nat Geo and Nat Geo WILD have been THE destination for viewers to get up close and personal with one of the world's most awe-inspiring creatures, and this summer we're eating up the competition AGAIN with an unprecedented line-up of action-packed shark shows," said Geoff Daniels, executive vice president of global unscripted entertainment at National Geographic. "Over five full weeks, our viewers will get the ultimate home field advantage to witness the ocean's super stars in their prime, so pull up your beach chairs and get ready for some SHARKFEST!"
Over the course of five weeks, Nat Geo and Nat Geo WILD continue to hit it out of the park with a variety of other jaw-dropping SHARKFEST originals and specials to catch the viewer's eye, including Raging Bull Shark, currently vying for the title of the world's most dangerous shark; and When Sharks Attack, a SHARKFESTstalwart that decodes the mystery of why sharks suddenly strike. In Sharks of the Bermuda Triangle, a marine biologist tracks an elusive tiger shark to uncover Mother Nature's most mysterious hotspot, and experience the intensity of a sea-life standoff in Shark vs. Whale.
The marathon of programming also underscores the best of the networks' wide shark library content — which includes hundreds of hours of programming — with titles airing throughout the five weeks, beginning at 6/5c every evening.
