Animal Planet Looks at Gulf Coast Devastation in ‘Black Tide: Voices from the Gulf’

Last April, the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig left a tragic loss of life in its wake and devastated the culture and spirit of countless Gulf Coast businesses and residents. Tonight at 9pm ET/PT, Animal Planet airs Black Tide: Voices from the Gulf, in which Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger tracks the lives of Louisianans living in the aftermath of the largest offshore oil spill in American history. The two-hour special explores how 200 million gallons of oil forever changed a way of life and how the region is rebuilding and finding new ways to survive.
