Shark Week will once again feature Rob Riggle’s funny moments with his famous friends and their crazy shenanigans with the sharks.


Apart from the experiments and stories that will be showcased, Shark Week will also feature a scripted film called “Capsized: Blood in the Water,” a thrilling true story about a shark encounter in the early ‘80s.

The network continued to team up with the best marine biologists to talk about recent shark research information and insights about the different kinds of species there are underwater. 


While sharks are believed to be scary creatures from the depths of the ocean, one man’s shark encounter showed the animals cry for help. Josh Eccles thought he was about to be attacked when the shark began bumping him repeatedly.


It turned out that a rusted hook was stuck inside the shark, causing pain. Despite the danger of being close to a deadly animal, Eccles extended his help and removed the hook before patting the shark on his head.
