Deadliest Catch

56 mins


Commercial fishing is considered one of the most dangerous jobs in America and going after King Crabs in Alaska’s Bering Sea is that much more perilous. Of course, a tough occupation like this makes for great drama, especially in the hands of Thom Beers whose production company, Original Productions, provides numerous hours of programming to cable networks. The Deadliest Catch, now in its seventh season, has had more than its share of drama last year when one of the show’s stars, Captain Phil Harris, suffered a stroke while on board. The cameras-at Harris’s insistence-kept filming right up to his death. At this very special screening, Beers will explain how he tells a compelling story like Harris’ and provides a tutorial on how to pitch, sell and make compelling television.
