TLC’s ‘Breaking Amish’ Meets Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week’

On August 2, Discovery’s networks highlighted upcoming programming for TV critics during a series of afternoon TCA panels — from TLC‘s Breaking Amish and OWN‘s Married to the Army: Alaska to Military Channel‘s The Brokaw Files and Discovery Channel‘s Curiosity: Plane Crash (wt).

Following the presentation, the critics and special guests were invited to the pool at the Beverly Hilton for a special 25th Anniversary Shark Week Party. As sharks invaded the pool and swam by on large screens, attendees enjoyed shark-inspired cocktails and cupcakes, while posing for pics with a special sand sculpture and the one-of-a-kind VW Beetle shark cage.
