Discovery's 'Swords: Life on the Line' Will Return for Season 2

SWORDS: LIFE ON THE LINE, the hit documentary series that showcases the lives of New England's long line fisherman, will return for a second season of high risk adventure in the North Atlantic, it was announced today by John Ford, president and general manager of The Discovery Channel. Produced by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia company, and BermanBraun, the second season of SWORDS is slated to premiere early next year with all-new episodes.

"SWORDS is a potent mix of unbelievable footage and unforgettable characters," said Ford. "The show captures the grit, guts and humor its takes for these men and women to conquer the high seas and high stakes of sword fishing," said Ford.

SWORDS takes viewers into the high risk lives of New England's long line fishermen. These men and women are gamblers, risking all to catch an elusive prey in some of the most dangerous waters on the planet. Swordfish, the magnificent giants of the deep, can weigh over a thousand pounds and the best time to catch them is every fall when they can be found in the stormy waters of the North Atlantic the home of the infamous and deadly "perfect storm" of 1991.
