‘After the Catch’ to be filmed in The Big Easy this season!

Jim Halterman, of the Futon Critic, just interviewed Jeff Conroy, executive producer of ‘Deadliest Catch’ and posed several very interesting questions to him.  One of the questions was about filming ‘After the Catch’.  The answer is yes!  There will be an ‘After the Catch’ IV!!!  Read on, please, and make the jump to the original interview to read  more on Phil Harris and the other skippers…

JH: Are we seeing more of ‘After The Catch,’ too?

JC: Yeah, we’re going to see five episodes of ‘After The Catch.’ We’re going to shoot down in New Orleans and hopefully give Phil a proper send-off. ‘After The Catch’ is really nice to have that opportunity to show people in a way you can’t in the series. The personalities, the relationships… it’s all great. Overall, it just continues to compel. It’s an amazing world for a producer and it’s so satisfying. You go out there, work your ass off and you come back with true stories and that’s so hard to do in TV where you’ve got pressures to make your show but with this show you get that authentic thing. I don’t know how else to describe it other than to say it’s giving a character and giving them a real moment and capturing it over and over again. This show delivers the greatest high you can imagine.

  2. opilia says:

    In general, just New Orleans, LA as the article says–but no specific location mentioned yet.

  3. Michelle says:

    when does after the catch start

  4. Lori says:

    “After the Catch’ usually airs during the 2nd part of DC during opilia season. Pugh – New Orleans – great for the folks down there, but I think there are “better” places to send the guys. OK, and all you LA folks don’t bash me now – LOL!

    Hi Lori,

    You’re right they’ll usually start airing it during the latter part of Opilio season. I’m assuming they’ll do the same thing this year provided they’re all done filming and editing ( I havent heard of which business they’re going to film at, or when…)
