Discovery Channel Goes to the Bayou with ‘Ragin’ Cajuns’

January 17, 2012 | by aharris

Discovery Channel‘s taken viewers to the northern seas with Deadliest Catch and to the swamps of Florida with Swamp Brothers, and now audiences can travel south the bayou of Louisiana to see what it takes to strike it rich in “white gold” during the three-month white shrimp season.

Ragin’ Cajuns, premiering tonight at 10pm ET/PT, is set in Venice, Louisiana — a 2,000-person town that was thriving prior to Hurricane Katrina and the oil spill of 2010. Shrimping success is tied not just to families but to the survival of the town. You’ll meet a new set of captains on Tuesday nights and join them as work hard (and play hard) on land and at sea.
