Premiering Monday, August 11 at 7 p.m. ET during specialty TV’s most iconic summer event – “Shark Week” – Macklemore joins deep-sea superstar scientist Dr. Erika Montague for a breathtaking voyage deep below the surface where no light shines…but how will the prehistoric sharks that live in the dark react to lights from their sub?
