Discovery goes shrimping with 'Ragin' Cajuns' -- EXCLUSIVE

Time to focus on a new crop of crazy fisherman!

Beginning Jan. 17, Discovery will travel down the Mississippi into the Louisiana Bayou in Ragin’ Cajuns, a new series that focuses on white shrimp season.

The unscripted reality series follows a motley crew of blue-collar anglers who are desperate to keep their shrimp boats afloat in the wake of the 2010 oil spill and the fallout from Hurricane Katrina. They come from a little town called Venice in Louisiana.

As usual, they come with colorful names too, like Blimp (a 400 lb man with a “big heart and a bigger case of bad luck”), Acy and Trae Cooper (father and son duo who come from a long line of Louisiana coast shrimpers), Dar Dar (some dude who won’t make Acy’s daughter an honest woman), Kip Marquize (a renegade captain), and Waylon Burris (a gambler and — what else? — risk taker).

In case you didn’t know (because who would?), white shrimp season lasts three months — perfect for a half-season run on a basic cable network. Ragin Cajuns is from Gurney Prods. (World’s Dirtiest Man, Surviving Death).
