In this age of shelter-in-place restrictions, TV programmers are scrambling to find inventive ways to seize your attention while you’re housebound.

And so the Discovery Channel is inviting you to “sit back, relax and put your fins up” for a Shark Week in a Weekend binge session.

Yes, television’s longest-running summer TV event will swim onto screens for a special weekend marathon featuring a lineup of fan-favorite episodes.

It promises to take viewers to oceans around the world with a team of renowned marine biologists and science institutions to deliver “groundbreaking shark stories incorporating innovative research technology and revealing compelling insight into the mysterious world of sharks.”
