This year’s “Shark Week” will kick off Sunday, July 22 on Discovery Channel, with the programming set to take over Discovery for eight straight days of shark-infested fun!
EW got their hands on the first programming details for “Shark Week” 2018, revealing that one of this year’s brand new specials will take the stars of “Shark Tank” and put them in the deep to swim with actual sharks in “Shark Tank Meets Shark Week.“
“Shark Tank Meets Shark Week features the stars of the ABC reality competition (Mark Cuban, Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Daymond John) each pairing up with an oceanic organization to receive an education in the issues facing those misunderstood predators of the sea, ranging from habitat destruction, overfishing, and bycatch. The Sharks (minus Lori Greiner) will then return to the Shark Tank set, where they will reunite with fellow Shark, Robert Herjavec, and pitch each other as to why their organization deserves a $50,000 donation. Each Shark will then cast a vote for the organization that is most deserving of the money.”
“Shark Week” 2018 will be the channel’s 30th anniversary event.
