Discovery has begun production on “Dirty Jobs”, with Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, returning to the network to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible. The series will premiere later this year on Discovery.
“Every now and then, the headlines catch up to a TV show and make it relevant in ways that no one imagined. With essential work in the news, it’s impossible not to think of ‘Dirty Jobs“, and for the last year, people have asked me every day if the show would make a comeback. Today, I’m happy to say the answer is yes. In other words, just when I thought I was out, they sucked me back in!” Mike Rowe said.
The upcoming season of DIRTY JOBS finds Mike getting back to work and getting his hands even dirtier than before – heading deep in the southern bayous to high up in America’s remote Badlands. The dirtier the job, the better as Mike tackles each job with his typical candid, no non-sense take and wry sense of humor. Each episode will showcase the unsung heroes and the communities that rely on these essential jobs.
“Dirty Jobs” originally aired on Discovery from 2005 to 2013 and was rebooted last summer as “Dirty Jobs: Row’d Trip.”
