DENVER (January 14, 2019) –Outdoor Sportsman Group (OSG) has teamed up with Duality Filmworks and Voodoo Fishing Charters for a new series – The Voodoo Crew– that will premiere on Outdoor Channel in April 2019. The announcement was made today by Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore.
The Voodoo Crew, out of Venice, Louisiana, consists of six custom 36-42’ sportfishing boats with a combined 22 engines that make up Voodoo Fishing Charters’ fleet. Throughout an average year, Voodoo Charters will book more than 1,100 fishing trips and log more than 12,000 hours on the waterways of the Gulf of Mexico.
In the season debut, cameras will follow the crew, and its entire operation, from sunrise to sunset while chronicling the grindand everyday lives of the captains, deckhands, staffers and clients that board the boats at dawn in hope of returning later in the day with a giant fish and story of how they battled the fish and Mother Nature. The grindis the life and viewers will quickly find out there is no other charter team that’s better suited for the challenge than The Voodoo Crew.
“This new partnership is very exciting for Outdoor Sportsman Group,” Liberatoresaid. “OSG has been steadily building its fishing programming on all of our networks. Fishing shows are proving to be compelling, competitive and exciting to watch and we have no doubt The Voodoo Crewwill add to our expanding menu of quality outdoor lifestyle and fishing programming.”
There’s nothing scripted and fishy about the stories that viewers will see in this real-life snapshot of the high stakes charter fishing world. The Voodoo Crew is produced by Los Angeles-based Duality Filmworks led by co-executive producers Brian Quaca and Dave Luce.
“We’re pumped to jump in on this joint venture with Outdoor Sportsman Group to show folks the daily battle it takes to become and remain a top-tier fishing charter,” Voodoo Charters Owner, Captain Trey Piquesaid. “The natural drama that occurs day-in and day-out is worth the price of admission with no phony script needed here.”
The Voodoo Crewwill premiere on Outdoor Channel in April 2019.
