We have always liked this quote from Craig, if for no other reason because we all feel this way sometimes. “This job has explained to me who I am — I’m not kidding, … I always knew I was an actor, but kind of not. I always knew I was a writer, but kind of not. I knew was a producer, but kind of not. It’s really a peculiar confluence of skills and experiences that put you in the right position to do this job. But I know now what I am. I’m this. Whatever this is. Now that I know this it’s really helped me in my life.”
Shark week begins tomorrow on the Discovery Channel. From the LA Times, here’s a look at the schedule:
Sunday, Aug. 1, 10 p.m.: “Into the Shark Bite”
Created by the producers of Discovery’s “Time Warp” series, go where humans don’t dare to. Watch the power of a shark bite filmed with the latest high-speed, high-definition cameras from extraordinary angles — virtually ending up inside the jaws of sharks.
Monday, Aug. 2, 9 p.m.: “Shark Attack Survival Guide”
In the ultimate immersive survival show, host and Green Beret Terry Schappert draws on his survival training to show you ways to stay alive if attacked by a shark. Schappert dives with real sharks to re-create five attack scenarios, drawn from actual survival stories, to show how these attacks can happen, and what you can learn to do so that neither you nor the shark gets hurt.
Monday, Aug. 2, 10 p.m.: “Day of the Shark”
Learn valuable lessons from six people who survived shark attacks, and find out why they don’t blame the sharks. Hear from a Navy SEAL who was attacked by a bull shark in the murky waters of Sydney Harbor while participating in an anti-terrorism exercise; a fisherman attacked by a pair of bull sharks while standing in the shallow waters of Breton Sound in Louisiana; a surfer in Jongensfontein, South Africa, who was attacked by a great white shark; a vacationer snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia who was attacked by a reef shark; and a surfer attacked by a tiger shark off Oahu, Hawaii.
Tuesday, Aug. 3, 9 p.m.: “Shark Bite Beach”
In 2008, fear gripped beaches along the coast of California and Mexico in the wake of multiple horrific shark attacks. “Shark Bite Beach” returns to the site of the attacks to re-create the dramatic stories of survival and search for clues that might explain why sharks mistook humans for prey that fateful summer.
Wednesday, Aug. 4, 10 p.m.: “Shark Bites — Adventures in Shark Week”
Late-night talk show host and comedian Craig Ferguson takes viewers on a dive through some of the most jaw-dropping moments from past “Shark Week” specials. With the help of shark experts, learn amazing shark feats, shark facts and shark science while we bust some myths and highlight some of the dirtiest jobs in the ocean.
